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.
Strange this fight with Dober took so long to happen, was originally scheduled 5 years ago.

When McGregor said ,"we are not here to participate but to takeover."

Is really being nailed by Teamkhabib

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

Majed ALGahtani
Majed ALGahtani:
Dana White is a joke this guy been asking for top fights for ever and Chandler get a tittle shot after one win? no wonder Habib don't have many tite defense because Dana did him them same smh
His submission win over Drew Dober was incredibly impressive as well. Can't wait to see him back in there!

Al Capone
Al Capone:
Khabib’s look went from confident to concern when he realized he barely speak English as well.
I’m really starting to believe that Khabib’s DNA is being used to make clones
Almighty Diego Floreano

That translator looks tough asf and has potential to be one of the greats in the UFC. I wish him the best in the future!!!

This man is one of my favorite fighters
I hope the Dagestani’s never get good at English, I love when they beat someone and then start talking very poor but understandable English. It’s so hilarious. ✌️😂

Was praying for khabib to come back to the ring, my prayers were answered.

The next lightweight champion, as Habib himself said, was the UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev insh Allah🤲🏻☝🏻🏆
Merey Nurlan

Most ducked fighter hands down!
Joaquin Vega
Joaquin Vega:
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
My Mom
My Mom:
It’s INSANE that he’s a lightweight… he looks massive
Itachi Uchiha
Itachi Uchiha:
This just tells you , how good drew dober is for sticking with him for 3 rounds , I think makhachev will be the undisputed lightweight champion !

I respect this guy man he listen to khabib like a real student and the way he respects and follows his word of the real champ thats worth noting it
Kshitij Raj
Kshitij Raj:
‘Or I wanna fight brock lesnar’ is the most derisory comment I’ve ever heard in UFC !
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
wesley scott
wesley scott:
The call out of Brock Lesner is very interesting... What a good angle.... Be David fighting Galiath... Keep aiming for that superfight; I for one would love to see the old school Japanese Rizin freak show events again.
Joe smith
Joe smith:
Without a doubt he will become Champion sooner then later.The most well rounded skills in the division !
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!
Yousef Saboor
Yousef Saboor:
His last fight vs tsarukyan (can’t spell his name) was a sick fight very entertaining if you found that level of grappling boring then the sport ain’t for you
Salma Sophis
Salma Sophis:
I like the fact that he keeps asking for the top 15 guys. And he has Khabib as his translator. Good luck to him.

Ri An

One of the reason Khabib retired is to give opportunity for his brother to rise. His brothers respect him so much that they will never challenge him in UFC.

That King K. Rool Main
That King K. Rool Main:
I can't wait to see him go up the ranks.
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.
Werry SetiaOne
Werry SetiaOne:
It is very unfair not to give a great fight to Makachev, even though he is great and all khabib fans are looking forward to Makhachev's match !!!
