    Why are we talking about what if, what could of versus what actually happened. We're overlooking that khabib, with a broken foot brought the pressure and gave justin so much to think about, that it overwhelmed him. Let's be greatful for what we have seen from this man, it's not often we get to witness this level of greatness mixed with a very humble persona. A man who cherishes everything he has because he has found out it can be taken away in a blink of an eye. Im excited to see what happens with this division, and to see what AKA and Khabib will bring to the game with new prospects.

      She pronounced it correctly. The “K” in Khabib is silent and it’s just pronounced “Habib” meaning “beloved” in Arabic.
