He didn't degrade mcgregors grandad. It is a well known fact mcgregors grandad fought for the British navy against the Irish. Khabib stated a fact, mcgregor labled someone a terrorist.
Khabib also gives to charity He gives a minimum of 2.5% of his wealth every year to charity and he does it without making a scene of it
The issue here is pain and simple . Khabib isn't white, is a Muslim and is pretty much seen as a villain from day one He is favoured mostly by ethnic minorities and probably the Muslim world. This incident has highlighted favouritism, racism, islamophobia, cherry picking where to include things in time lines and quotes more than anything else.
No one is disputing Khabib shouldn't have gone after the guy. Hell even khabib isn't However, true to any incident in the world where an element of racism etc exists, it is one rule fir us and another for them.
What happened after the fight shouldn't have happened but I believe it was needed to highlight these issues and open up debates so it can improve going forward
Fake news. The last time the British navy fought the Irish was 1916. If mcgregors grandad was involved he'd have to be about 60 years older then his father which is just a straight up lie. You guys peddle so much fake news around here to try and paint khabib as w good guy.
Here's another double standard. Mcgregor cells khabib backwards. Oh he's racist and an islsmaphobe! How many times have ufc fighters called mcgregor a leprechaun and told him to go eat his lucky charms? Nobody cried racism then. Double standards.
This is my final comment on the issue. Mcgregor has had worse pre fight antics then khabib although khabib has done some nasty things outside. But mcgregor is still worse.
At one of their fights though khabib has behaved by far the worse. Spat on opponent, attacked spectator and caused a massive brawl. Compared to mcgregor who has always been respectful to his opponent after the fight in victory or defeat.
Neither are angels so it's ridiculous and hypocritical to pretend otherwise.
