I'm assuming most of you have seen this already, but for those that follow UFC, Khabib beat Conor. That's no surprise, but what happened after was. Apparently, Conor's BJJ coach said something to Khabib and he flew over the octagon to attack him. You can read the stories online, but this created major problems and it ended up with his purse being withheld. What are your guys thoughts about this?
Personally, I think that Conor is an idiot and shouldn't be playing in this sport. I've done BJJ at a competition level and there's no ********. You shake your opponents hand, fight them and shake them after. There's a sense of respect that was completely missing there. Conor's aggressive and extremely disrespectful behavior towards Khabib's religion and country should not have been tolerated. If anything remotely similar was said in a local competition it would result in immediate disqualification. Regardless, Khabib should've shaked the dude's hand and walked off with his title. He is a respectful fighter but he just blew his lid at the end.
Edit: I've been watching some phone recorded footage showing different angles. Turned out Conor actually attacked one of Khabib's guys as he flew over the ring.
