      Nope…Dagestan was known way before khabib. That area has the most gold in wrestling in the world long before khabib was known. Khabib was known worldwide after the Conor fight which was considered recent compared to how long Dagestan has been winning gold medals

      ​@@tricallyourmamaThat's true, but Khabib definitely put Dagestan on the map when it comes to MMA and the mainstream. Wrestling is still a niche sport with a limited exposure, and even within the sport most people just knew Dagestani wrestlers as "Russians" and not many were aware of Dagestan as a distinct place.
      He definitely made Dagestan more known worldwide, and inspired a whole generation of MMA fighters from there.

      Luke is a big middleweight with some fights at light heavyweight; DC is a light heavyweight/heavyweight. They were two to four weight classes above him at all times and he kept wrestling them. When he wrestled someone his own size, it was completely one-sided even back then. You can also see Luke gassing and struggling to breathe vs Khabib.
      They still contributed a lot and helped him settle in, coached and trained him, but if they were the same size, it would've been a completely different look.

    Rockhold was really good looking...
    Also, no wonder Khabib got that good, you have that beast Cormier teaching you. He was one of the best if not the best in adapting wrestling into MMA, Cormier was something else.

    I love that you can see him open up once he’s proved himself at the gym lol. I would kill to see the look on peoples face when they first saw him training. I bet the regulars at that gym were befuddled when such and amazing talent came in with a crazy back story of being undefeated from Dagestan.
