The really brainwashed and besotted McGregor fans have always been weird like that. They have to find an angle or reason to hate his opponents/rivals. Aldo was ‘faking a broken rib’ and terrified, Dos Anjos pulled out with a ‘bruised foot’ etc. I’m sure Eddie Alvarez was getting shat on in the buildup to their fight as well. What the fuck kind of MMA fan hates Eddie Alvarez? Those seriously in love McGregor fans are a different breed. There’s no reasoning with that. They don’t seem to realise that you can root for your guy without hating the man in the other corner. Granted, there are valid reasons to dislike Khabib but I doubt those are why the McGregor fans hate him. It’s because he had the cheek to speak their phone smashing, OAP slapping, mercy begging, lying about broken foot having leader’s name in vain. There’s got to be an element of some of the hate being about his religion. That goes without saying. But I think there’s a few factors going on. I think the anti-Khabib section of the MMA fanbase can be split up into a few groups - the Islamaphobe lot, the McGregor obsessives, the people who just don’t like his fighting style etc. There’ll be crossover there, like I dare say there’s a significant overlap between the Islamaphobes and the McGregor arselicks. Then there’ll be people who genuinely just don’t like some of the things he’s done or been involved in like the brawl after the McGregor fight, the Kadyrov links and so on. Don’t want to speak for him but I think that’s the root of Carbomb disliking Khabib from what I recall of some of his past posts. There’s probably quite a mix. Regardless, this is a fantastic fight tomorrow. If I had to put money on it I’d still pick Khabib but the closer it’s getting I am starting to get a little nagging feeling that we might see an upset.
