Khabib vs Conor 2 – rematch that should happened in 2019. Conor asked right after the fight for a rematch, Khabib said “go back in line..you do not deserve a rematch.” But if Conor wants something, usually he get’s it, and UFC sees a lot of opportunity in this fight – moneywise.
Lately couple of things happened which made me think that rematch is more likely to happen. Conor started posting his mindfooking posts saying that Khabib was complaining to the referee during their fight even from mount position – which is by Conor’s definition “Bitching”. Here is what he wrote in his last instagram post:
I told him here to his face. “Don’t be bitching.” Common knowledge I would think for a fighting man.
Don’t be a bitch, bitching.
The same thing I said to khabib at the end of round 3. My round.
Don’t be bitching!
Every single round bitching to the referee.
He was even bitching in the fourth round from mount position.
It baffled me.
If anyone should have been saying anything to the referee, it should have been me in that 1st round. That round he held onto my legs for four minutes straight. With zero activity.
But a fight is a fight who gives a fuck. Crying to the referee like a proper bitch.
I was trying to dig my fingers into his Adams Apple.
Many individuals in the fight business, I have learned lately, are absolute bitches.
I know you’s are broke boys. But don’t be broke bitches.
Another post was with caption “coming back routhless!”
In the meantime Khabib is not saying anymore he should go back to line, and he is not asking the Tony fight anymore. Khabib’s manager clearly said we do not need Tony fight, we need someone who can sell per-per-views and Tony is not that guy. He even said he is 100% procent sure that Tony is not next fight for Khabib.
After these words of Khabib’s manager, he was asked by one of the fans since when he is fighting for money? And Khabib’s response was that those are words from his manager and not from him. Which means that he is not denying what his manager said.
And also, in his last post he was using Conor’s quote, “if one of us goes to war, we all go to war!”

And what Dana White and UFC are thinking? Dana White said couple days ago, that this fight should happen in 2019.
So is the hype already started? Is this fight already being promoted by all 3 involved parties: Conor, Khabib and UFC? Not sure, but they all are talking about it which means that something is cooking. Let’s hope they will make a deal and we as a fans can see this fight sooner than later.
