“Khabib and lots of people assume Islam Makhachev is actually going to get into this dialog, as soon as he is executed with Drew Dober.
“I consider that, with each a part of me. If Islam Makhachev will get to the championship as we would like, as we expect he’ll, if Islam Makhachev turns into the primary man and somebody catches him after which begins calling Khabib, that could be the way to get Khabib again .
“Because he’s her brother. Guy gets involved with Islam, gets Islam and he becomes the man, Khabib might be like “I have to get this one back for my guy”.
