what happened in Vegas you know stay in Vegas Kabir welcome to London as usual very calm very collected but inside you excited to get back inside the Octagon yes you know it's like very exciting about my comeback with tough opponent versus interim lightweight champion and I can't do it this time away from competition has it been frustrating for you or has it been a a welcome relief tough some time away you know I enjoy with my time why I have to be stress for what I am already a champion I defend my title you know I am undefeated of course I want to just enjoy with all practice you know I don't have stress I enjoy with my hard work or the hard training with my brothers with my team you know with everything what happened inside outside the cage and I just enjoy with it are you excited to put Las Vegas behind you and what happened out there because you you were out of character as well what happened in Vegas you know stay in Vegas nothing come out you know and everybody see what happen in Vegas you know Victor in my side you know we smash him we smash all his team very about this and about city I don't know I I don't want to fight in Vegas anymore because they take his money and they take my money take more time than his money this is not about money it is about this about how they how all process going you know this about this and I do wanna fight in Vegas and you know if some great fight happen in Vegas I'm gonna go and just watch but I don't wanna fight anymore anyways if Connor comes back in and get some wins beats bits of blank guy would you entertain a rematch with Connor if he deserves yes but right now I'm not interesting why I need very much for what even though it makes the most money money is not bad but when you have too much money's no good it was part of your return tied into the dating Abu Dhabi did you want to compete in Abu Dhabi yes very I would want fight in Abu Dhabi because a lot of my friends can come from USSA countries from Russia from Arabic countries everybody can come to Abu Dhabi and watch my fight and enjoy you know and this is perfect place right now for me for UFC to make big you see in Arabic countries and perfect time and perfect place how importance as well is that a BW is such a large Muslim community you must feel it has been a very much a role model yeah I have very big big support in Muslim community and Emirates and a lot of time I go to Abu Dhabi Dubai with my family kids enjoy there you know this is like my opinion like most safe place in the world because I was in London Moscow Dagestan Turkey us like I was ever a Europe like Emirates is most safe place in the world you know that's the no need nervous about his life or something like this he can come with his family enjoy after fight in Dubai Abu Dhabi and they have a lot of place you can enjoy their family and I love this place you know this football is in this country people like masala who were changing you know that the mentality of people you know Islamophobia is write down people who really embracing them do you do you feel responsible to do that was well on a global scale yeah I feel this you know it's like well with masala or with me or without us God do his job perfectly and with us or without us you know Islamophobia is gonna be gonna go down you know and people are gonna know who is who what is what and you know I am very happy to be part of this time because this is like very hard time for Muslims but we're gonna kill Islamophobia around the world everywhere because sometimes like right right now people everybody on internet like Instagram YouTube everywhere they watch every everybody they follow everybody you know they know who is who and we have to show perfect example for people for Muslims like everybody in the world you football for a football team I think I'm not only friend I think I'm here I know very big history in football you know like English Premier League for me the best Premier League in the world you know I follow I follow everything do you have a tube yes I need to say little enough that my team you know I like Liverpool I remember when I was kid 2005 when I watch liverpool vs milan in dagestan we have big screen TV in beach-like like thousands people watch on this much and when they losing like first time after first time like three know I really believe then they have to come back they have to come B because I like that they lost him like with me mu embarrass them wish me service a few PA I remember this like a I'm Steven Gerrard each time it's like it was like crazy team you know it's like very good team but right now is they have very good team right now to you know like i watch all much live champions in Liverpool but I'm big fan in Real Madrid but I like watching like English Premier League like even even they play like worst team they have like like yeah so when you fight now that they put the same screen up where the holding Dagestan is the same big TV for inside same right now like my last fight they put screen like everywhere like you know cinema theatres like outside inside everywhere why why do we get such a incredible talent pool from Dagestan why Dagestan why daddy Sam I think about history you know always if you watch in geography like how is Dagestan where's Dagestan you can understand like all life it's like a lot of wars happen in Dagestan people living in mountain and you know it's like tough life and when you have tough life hard life becomes success because you have motivation you hungry you need this you know and when you have everything you have money you have for you have house car everything you don't want to go to the gym and you know training so hard I think that's why and we have big history in sport like right now we have a best school in the world like freestyle lucinda like Bisco in russia like boxing grappling judo and MMA is everything is together and and people people sort of very tough people and mentality like everything become together I think will we seek a big go to the next level because your father's day is there another level to could be can you go even no I I have to go different little but not I can't jump out the cage I have to stay inside the cage and that's what your father said yeah but yes I already improve myself I'm working like everywhere like grappling striking wrestling condition like if you guys watch my every fight simplifies I improve you know if you want to be champion if you have if you want defend your title you have to become high with the MMA because MMA every day like grow up like go high high high high because Lara tough young hungry guys coming and you have to be ready for everybody and that's why I keep going you have to learn everyday something every day you have to learn and like even if you talk about great link I don't show everything what I can do and I'm working on my hip position I'm working on my mount position you know it's like take break like everywhere you know and we have 11 weeks before the fight and I'm gonna improve myself for next eleven weeks tell me about Dustin Poirier what his strengths are what he brings to Abu Dhabi is different from other other guys you face his stuff you know his stuff he had a good experience more than 20 fight in UFC you know he did a lot of tough guys I liked his footwork is boxing everything but I'm gonna make him tired you have to be ready because if he watches fights if I'd gauge he stand up if I'd paid to stand up if I'd Holloway stand up he fight like with everybody if I didn't stand up you know but with me you have to be really impressed prayer pressure like wrestling pressure I'm not going to stay with him on faith you know of course fight beginning like boxing style but I'm going to take him down make him tired and finish him this is what I'm gonna do he certainly your next challenge but a lot of people in the industry think your toughest challenge is actually Tony Ferguson who came back just last weekend were you impressed with Tony's performance and do you agree with Dutch think 20 figures and potentially even stronger than Dustin Poirier like mm like if you watch Tony Ferguson Dustin podium like little bit a little bit different style because Dustin is more technical you know not bad on the ground like Tony Ferguson had been on the ground toe but his skinny his skin I'm gonna hold him a little bit and finish his energy I talked about Tony Ferguson like people think he can do whatever he want on stand up but even if we talk about him he's fight all fights happen in stand up like Petey's cowboy or like like if you watch Kevin Lee fight you take him down you know he hold him he take he he take his mount you know but I am much different than Kevan Lee you know if Kay Malik and wasting one round I can wrestle five round you know it's like and if you watch how he fight vs wrestlers he always have problem like like Danny Costello my opinion he beat him like 21 in once I was this fight in Sacramento like very close in the cage and I was so surprised when they give Tony Ferguson victory he always have problem with wrestlers and anyways tough opponent digital title shot and to improve my legacy I have to beat this guy – yeah you talk a lot now about your legacy about how you're going to get to what you want to achieve in the sport when you do eventually leave how do people to remember I don't to be like just champion and I want to be like greatest champion a lightweight division lightweight belt was their friend only three-time I want to defend this four-time inshallah and big Tony Ferguson Dustin Poirier maybe GSP if you want to come back or other opponent and different for time is gonna be great the GSP fight is something you've talked about you just mentioned that that if he doesn't come back how do you define your legacy as one of the greatest of all time without moving up surely at some stage the pressure to move up to another weight division or potentially move down could you potentially move down just just beat Tony Ferris and then Dustin Poirier you can great is like that of all time you know undefeated undisputed I think enough do you just love MMA I get this feeling that you've done it for such a long time you still love the sport as I love competition you know I still love competition like sparring I grew up playing like even if we will run I love competition like if we talk about enjoy with victory this is different the victor like victor funny like I'm not a ninja like I enjoyed before I know I'm not enjoyed this like win-win and that's it I told it I'm worried about like after every fights I become famous famous famous right like you know like if I want I can't walk around the streets like I want you know like a lot of people come take pictures like try to talk with me you know I don't like this stuff like a little bit tired tired with this stuff this we're not like Victor because I I know where victory comes like money attention famous like a lot of stuff yeah that's why so will you look to get out of the sports before the feet cobbles or would it defeat mean the end of you know I I already work a lot of site like like business or something like this but not too much I have a lot of offer like with a lot of company it's like I tried a little bit stay away a lot of stuff because I'm coolin to use a lighter champion my job is defend my title you know number one job it's my defend my title if I won't defend my title I have to spend 5 hour every day and in the gym you know that's why everything is together if you lose something everything go down that's why I try to control everything because I know the history of MMA I know its history of Champions a lot of Champions when they become champion and a lot of guys like when they win a little bit change like Ronda Rousey like this is not about they bad people this is about like sometimes you can control everything like if before when you become champion if you train every day to time when you become champion some time you train one time on one like you can trim it a little bit running and you think you training but when you go to the cage you you no need for running you need sparring you need grappling unit wrestling you need hard work like before you when you become champion you work because you're hungry you need this and you have big motivation then you become champion you little bit lose your motivation but you and you forget about other guys you a lot of guys coming like training so hard very hungry and you have to understand this I know this I know this way I know this stuff and that's why I keep training keep working perfect and enjoy if I can look forward to the fight thank you so much which I appreciate

    Islamophobia: what a stupid made-up-word? What about creating another made-up-word like Buddhistphobia?
    Islam is a barbaric ideology that has been defeated after the first Caliphates collapsed. Mohammad and AbuBakr created the first Caliphate invading many places. Why should people embrace a barbaric ideology such as Islam?

    Islam is the same as Christianity, look:
    – Jesus didn't invade anywhere.
    – Mohammad invaded many places including Medina and Mecca (and expelled Christians and Jews from Mecca)

    See? Same ideology!! No?

    he explains his fight plan with Poriere. he wants him on the ground rather than stand up. so this is a good notice for Poriere to get ready for. but Khabib is not a recent wrestling learner, he has grown with this.

    ne te palin pas de l'islamophobie, c'est normal que les mécréants soit islamophobe, ils veulent vous voir mécroire comme ils ont mécru comme ça ont deviens leurs égaux, eux les peuples "blanc" sont islamophobe depuis 14 siécle, juste que la démon-cratie a pris la place de l'église(croisades)
