In fact, Khabib has been involved in the build-up for the match since the beginning. He has been rallying for Islam Makhachev getting a title shot and has been engaged in some interesting comments heading into the fight.

The Eagle was also called out by a string of UFC stars including Charles Oliveira for his comments. Some fighters like Anthony Pettis and Demetrious Johnson questioned the legacy of Khabib claiming that Khabib retired too early from MMA.

UFC President Dana White shared a similar emotion when he noted that the Russian cannot be included in the Greatest Of All Time Conversation. Dana also excluded Khabib from his top five UFC Fighters of all time.
