We’ve Translated What Russian MMA Fans Are Saying About McGregor vs. Khabib, And It’s Shocking

Undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is now locked in to face former two-division title holder Conor McGregor. With that in mind, it would appear that the Dagestan native may not have total support from Russian mixed martial arts fans.

“The Eagle” and the Ireland native are set to throw down in the main event of UFC 229. The live pay-per-view fight card will take place Oct. 6 from within the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.

Khabib Nurmagomedov recently decided to offer a comment on the match up over social media. After translating a series of comments from Russian MMA fans, it would appear that some are quite on the side of Conor McGregor. Check it out below.

“It’s been a long time – and now we are waiting for the most anticipated fight in the history of mixed martial arts. The key to success is faith in God, hard work and patience”

Here are the translated comments:

priyatno_glazam: And the Almighty said in the Qur’an, “fight for money”?

albertgukasov: Good luck in the battle with Conor, you need it!

palikid25I: was a huge khabib fan but after that performance with raging Al for some reason it looked like you were not a high level your hands looked very weak and not coordinated without that elite boxing it’s gonna be hard to go againest Mcgregor

timesofdrewConor: gonna knock that ass boy

_notorious_champ: ov fucking habib conor will kill you he’s in the rack just kills you my advice to you cancel the fight

valijonoff: Conor McGregor is stronger than you, and he kills you

liamlooms: Your going down you pussy fake champ

ayancrystal: @thenotoriousmma the King

james_donlon_: You will be knocked out stone dead on that goofy, hung out in the open chin. #HeadMovement

jordanzemui: You’re disgusting for how you tread homeless

miss_mox: ?????? Fool!!!

ytiworld: People thinking Khabib is gonna cruise thru Conor are crazy. His only chance is to take it to the ground. Standing his boxing is not even close. Don’t forget Mayweather is the greatest boxer of our generation and Conor hung amazing with him. That left hand will find its mark. Will be interesting to see what happens. I hope Khabib stands and doesn’t just bitch out and go straight for the ground

forsterstephennew: @khabib_nurmagomedov ya got no chance baby that what ya got @thenotoriousmma is going to take u clean out

phoenixgrapplingmachineKhabitch: “THE BORING ONE” Nurmagobitchov

joshaustin221: You’re going to get raped

valijonoff: Conor McGregor is stronger than you, and he kills you

tonebenz: Bout to get that chin cracked ?? @khabib_nurmagomedov

a.china_: he’ll pull out

naustin0401: Why does this have to become a Muslim/Irish thing? 2 great athletes. Im a fan of both. Connor has 1 round or 2 takedowns, whichever comes first and his lack of stamina will be exploited. Connors best chance is to catch him coming in for the takedown early. When Khabib takes him to the ground it becomes Khabib/Barboza 2. A boy fighting a man. I think Connor fans are delusional in not acknowledging that Khabib is in a completely different place than Connor is when it comes to his ground game and that Khabib has dominated strikers in the past.

_matthewchase: Work that little Irish prick into the ground.

t.y.s.ksa: May Allah succes you our hero

jerryasto: @thenotoriousmma win for KO at first round!!! I’m sure!

rug_bubbakush: @bossformat khabib will taste Irish power

tjkillashawoffical: To bad you’ll pull out

paul_mcmullan1888: Laughing at homeless people @khabib_nurmagomedov you should be ashamed

sudip.thapa.98: I like you & your fighting style but conor will knock you out in 2nd or 3rd round. No disrespect towards you @khabib_nurmagomedov. God bless us all

mouid_sakka: You will get knocked out by a left hand strike

unknown._.solo: @winners_mind_ haha lol baby…. conor going to smash the khabib

_beka_2003: We believe in you

socal_vtec: Gonna get laid out!!!

ruslan.sotirov: It’s a pity Khabib, it’s interesting he’ll knock when Conor will strangle him, if he’s so steep, and never knocks)))

barry10h: Posting a pic of your fists up doesn’t make your stand up any less shite, gone in 2 rounds kid

billa17046: You are not for ready Conor

[email protected]: I think Conor knows what he’s preparing for so, if he can defend those take downs Conor hands down but that’s not gonna be a walk in the park. My head says Khabib, my heart is a split decision.

iamhabibullayevfarruh: Conor is the best habib.
