Alright, so Khabib and Charles have been beefing. For some reason, Khabib can’t stay out of the spotlight even after he decided to retire from fighting. Personally, I feel like as much as Khabib likes to stay humble, the lack of attention on him is something he is finding hard to deal with.
Well, Khabib does have a need for remaining in the public eye since he has recently started Eagle FC, so him having the stardom is crucial for his fighting club too.
So, Khabib has spoken about Charles quite a few times recently. Khabib is Islam’s mentor and Charles might be fighting Islam in the near future. Islam and Khabib are similar in terms of fighting style and prowess.
Some people do speculate that Khabib wanted to avoid Charles and decided to quit fighting. Khabib cited personal reasons for not pursuing his fighting career anymore. Khabib had 3 title defences and called it quits after fighting Justin Gaethje. Charles Oliveira also has title defences against the same guys as Khabib except for Conor.
Charles Oliveira responded to Khabib talking about him saying that Khabib talks too much which is kinda true. I feel like there is little bit of tension leading up to the fight between Oliveira and Islam.
It will be cool to see both of them fight and I would definitely want to witness that.
Meanwhile Islam has also responded to Charles Oliveira accepting the fight against him.
Well, if Islam beats Charles Oliveira then he might get Khabib to come out of retirement and face him in the octagon. So, the build up is definitely interesting. Let me know in the comments what you think about this potential matchup.
