The only time in the history of combat sports where the translator can beat anyone in the division.

Makhachev (in Russian): Thank you to my team, family, and supporters.
Khabib translating: He say he best Combat Sambo wrestler, he smash everybody in lightweight division, Conor where you at he want to change your face.
Khabib retired because he has now found his real passion being a translator

" hey DC tell this people i deserve top 15 or I wanna fight Brock Lesnar" 😂😂😂

No tattoo, no crazy hairstyle, no trashtalk. PURE SKILL!

This guy is an under-rated beast. He's Khabib's protégé and just needs more fights to shock the world.

2:00 That well timed & calculated punch aswell as grabbing the knee to ensure he lands on his back was smooth! Really shows his skill

1:28 Khabibs dad looks so happy.
He must be proud as his son took his place as a coach to guide Islam on his way of championship.

Khabib school never fails
Khabib Italy respect you 🇮🇹👍
Khabib the Legend 👍
Ufc should have these guys fighting more often. Especially when guys like Makhachev and Chimaev don't even take much damage in their fights

Imagine after khabib translated. Joe rogan began to translate his translation.
His submission win over Drew Dober was incredibly impressive as well. Can't wait to see him back in there!
Mohammed Israr
Mohammed Israr:
wow just wow 👏 4:03 that trip and straight to the mount effortlessly that's skill thumbs up 👍 mackhachev
His fight with Arman Tsarukyan was one of the highest levels of MMA I’ve seen in the UFC. They put 2 of the best in the world before anyone really knew it. This guy is a future Champ for sure
It's so unfortunate for him that guys ranked above him who've lost their recent fights simply refused to fight down the rankings and fight him. So he's had to fight hungry guys ranked 15 - 20 like Ramos, Dober, Tsarukyan etc. But I think his time is coming.

Tsarukyan is so strong and Ana amazing grappler, and Makhachev literally ragdolled him.
1:22 Habib mixed in that "He say he is on another level combat sambo style" Islam didn't say that XD

When Khabib retired I was like oh damn 😔 but when I remembered Islam was still here I was like hot damn 🔥
They should give him McGregor 😂 that would be the icing on the 🎂
Crazy these earlier fights were in 2015! I noticed the sponsors on the shorts lol. But it shows there's some really good guys on the prelims I stopped watching those closely a long time ago and then bam you hear about a new killer in the division and realize hes Been in the ufc for almost 6 yrs now ! Give this man a top 5 opponent already!

What’s scary is that Khabib thinks he can breeze through the lightweight division better than he did. That Dober win was crazy, but I guess he’s even crazier in practice
