    Conor started the feud by stealing Khabib's well-earned title shot against Eddie Alvarez back in November 2016.

    The only thing "Unacceptable" is that Khabib finally called conor a RAPIST... after that Dana Fake Hype got involved, before that what that Rapist Rat was saying was fine and dandy.

    Lobov started the feud, get the facts straight, he call d Khabib a bitch and coward, that’s why Khabib confronted him. And Khabib was nice about it, he just made his point and gripped him from the back of the neck. It’s not like he walked over and gave him a three piece and a soda.

    In my eyes you are aloud to give you opinion without having to worry about physical part. McGregor is no angel but he's not the one who decided to slap one of khabib's friend for an interview. That was disrespectful for Artem and Conor, but in no way I can condemne the actions that followed. Conor lost the fight and what happened at the end was just khabib pouring oil on a already very explosive situation. McGregor is a talker above all that he is... It's been a long time now, khabib is an intelligent man... So how the hell is he still going in a back and forth with McGregor after beating him so badly. That wasn't a fight that left me wanting to see another. This is the fight game, feelings are going to get shattered and expectations will wipe the floor in some cases." Your wife's a towel mate" was truly out of order on the part of McGregor (it's had me cracked for a sec....then I realized) khabib is a Muslim, the cultural differences and all... That's their tradition so it's kind of low to attack that and even worst talking about his wife. This now have the feeling of two kids in an argument trying to outdo eachother. #thisisgettingbooring

    It's doesn't matter who started you jewish instigator. It only matters who crossed the line.
    They're fighters and they're supposed to beef with each other... It's part of the business as long as you don't cross the line and get into religion and family. Khabib never crossed the line and beefed like any normal fighter would. Conor always crosses the line. Conor might just get murdered one day and he'll deserve it.

  • visigoth james
    visigoth james Month ago

    Khabib slapped Artem and trash talked without crossing the line that's normal for fighters. Even Conor's bus incident was okay in my opinion.
    But talking about a man's family, religion, and wife is crossing all lines and asking for a death sentence.
    Don't equate the between the two you freakin Jewish instigator.

    Conors a cunt acting like a wet bitch to keep himself famous and to keep people talking about him. Once a little thug always a little thug. Fuck ufc. Fuck conor. Fuck dana the biggest conor fanboy white. Conor makes things personal and then when someone reacts its everyone elses fault and "just business" verbally abusing peoples families and religions. Whats that saying about people who talk too much?. He backed it up, now he just keeps talking and talking and talking and. . . . . Talking.. im from the uk. Always knew he was an arrogant piece of shit and never liked the cunt. Cant wait until someone shuts him up once and for all!!

    Guy is s scumbag , they want all the trash talk to put asses in seats but when it goes sour they all cry like babies .
    Khabib has every right to be pissed at McGregor and it was lobov and co that started it Facts !

    Jinn Mallik Month ago

    Artem picked a side going vocal it's called selling a fight self promotion included, Khabib did not slap Artem more of a tight grip a harsh warning, I got this feeling Paulie got sight of Artems opponent then figured Artem is not winning battle a excuse to duck out facing the man he slapped.
    Be gutted if Artem vs Paulie did not happen, betting Paulie ain't turning up, be sad.

    Gotta disagree about Khabib starting the feud. Artem Lobov did. I remember Lobov shooting some video in his kitchen talking about how Conor would destroy Khabib. Then Khabib confronted him about it and we all know the rest of the story.

  • Jim Assalone
    Jim Assalone Month ago +1

    The “He started it” defense is so childish it Helwani sounds like a total McGregor fanboy making weak excuses for him. Lobov is a man who should be able to handle his business without his buddy trying to get even. McGregor had a chance but got his ass handed to him in grand fashion. That should be the end of it. McGregor stepping in for his supposed friend is just an ego thing for narcissist McGregor.

    Khabib is a kid toucher worshipper. He keeps his wife, or rather property, covered completely, her beauty hidden to the darkness. A form of dominance, abuse within the practice of Islam.
    Essentially, Conor exposes this. Therefore Conor went to far.
    The idea that if something is religious, or more specifically Islamic, it should not be questioned is dangerous. This way of thinking sets the future up for great devastation.
