McGregor is a bully and is often the instigator but not in this case. Khabib was the instigator. He cornered artem and slapped him. He knew mcgregor would take the bait and retaliate. And for the last 2 years he's been shit talking mcgregor long before mcgregor said a bad word about him. Stop rewriting history to suit your anti mcgregor agenda.
And to say a fighter being a bully is bad is laughable. Their job is literally to get in a cage and bully each other. Any sports physiologist will tell you that mental warfare before the fight can have a huge bearing on the result. Mcgregors bully tactics haven't always worked but there's no doubt they have helped him win certain fights. Aldo the prime example. Alvarez probably the next best example.
You DO realize Artem made fun of Khabib, right? Khabib already stated he was just talking with him. Nothing crazy, just a civil question as to why he commented on him the way he did? McGregor obviously over exaggerated and took it way too far. He thought he was picking a fight lol. Honestly, I think he would have raided that bus either way. I don't think the artem confrontation was the reason at all. There's already talk about it going deeper than that.
Don't say crap like I'm trying to re-write history or something. LOL, give me a break. You have an opinion, I have an opinion. You like McGregor, I despise the clown. Simple as that. I've been watching these two for quite some time to be able to form an opinion I'm more than comfortable with stating. Khabib just wants to fight in the ring. McGregor, well...it seems more and more he's trying to be something else. Maybe he should run away to the WWE like Ronda did because honestly, this is exactly who he is reminding me of. All talk. Or if WWE is not his thing, focus on selling his whiskey lol - what a joke that was to me. But hey, a vast majority can relate to this sort of behaviour I guess.
Hey man, BULLY all you want. Just don't bring in family, religion or anything personal into the equation. That shit just gets serious all too often and gets out of hand real quick. You think Khabib cares about McGregor's religion or father or whatever goes on in his life? Stick to saying he's an amateur or newb or somethin (which he quickly proved otherwise) or anything related to the actual fighting. What does anything else even have to do with it? Right?
