      @Somanley I agree with you there although I think the original comment was aiming more towards humbling him as a person in general..which is what I don't agree with..but yeah..defo needed to reform and reconquer..

    • Somanley
      Somanley 2 days ago

      @Castor Jimbo Khabib took away his right to the top. He humbled conor, no matter how you look at it. He was stripped away from his title and was slowly going down a dangerous road. This is what he needed, to reform and reconquer
