  • Masters master of techniques. Mixed martial Art is all about khabib as music to jackson. I like the blending kicking /defending/ wrestling mauling it is mix of all. That is MMA. I hate the guys who make mma onother boxing competition

  • Cheat meal. Tirramasu

  • Khabib we love you and always will where can we get your Dagastan shirt?

  • humble and honest person than whats make him the most valueable fighter and also as a person.

  • Clearly Khabib had not made the choice by then to retire, he doesn't lie, he would have simply not spoken if he had. So between the 19th and the win he made the choice.

  • damn I'll be missing this man

  • who is here after 29 - 0

  • Mike ur prediction was ok he did put justin to sleep without much hurting

  • Khabib is an absolutely Amazing fighter to say the least and an Ever more Amazing humble simple & real Human Being. What a stand up Guy

  • 29-0 - The 🐐

  • will u make vid on his performance in ufc 254 ?

  • good interview man, subbed

  • Great interview, really enjoyed this one!

  • It’s crazy that this was the last podcast of his career

  • the greatest undefeated, undisputed p4p legend,29-0 never one cut, never been dropped, never lost a round in my book, retires on top! mike our boy did it tonight!! i cried like a baby last night. I'm happy he decided to go out on top, and sad we won't see him fight anymore, but I'd rather have it this way, now it's Islam's turn. i wish someone would make a movie about khabib's life from the beginning to the end it's like a rocky movie but real, and i think a reality show with him and dc would be awesome too. congratulations champ.

  • Deep inside him said : "hitting some one face is ⛔" in Islam. Now he is Free & full of Joy. Alhamdulillah. Khabib Nur Muhammagomedov.


  • Even if khabib loose this fight. He is a great Human being. Khabib is a real Champion.

  • Thorougly enjoyed, Great work Mike!

  • You can see that mike and khabib are real brothers love and respect from both

  • great interview

  • Khabibs voice sounds different In the interviews he’s given leading up to this fight. Anybody else notice this?

  • if you build it they will come!

  • Only Covington and Usman has the cardio,mma wrestling, pressuring ability to beat Kabib. Don't see anybody right now in 155div posing a threat .

  • Khabibs first words as a child were: SMESH SMESH AND SMESH

  • Subscribed 👌

  • This was a great interview, inspiring stuff! :) Good luck to Khabib

  • drinking game.. ... when he say like take a shot ... cheeers 😁

  • just make it 2 minuets long so it doesn´t seem that meaningless (as for all ufc-media)..


  • this podcast is gunna blow up man, love the name, please keep getting tons of fighters on!

  • Podcast? This is more like an interview

  • AKA!!!

  • the real Don of UFC. all the best for the fight


  • AND STILL!!!!!!

  • REMEMBER KHABIB gave Poor POEPLE water.... 👈☝️😇😇😇. 🙏🏽... Ameen

  • eat like Champion, sleep like champion, repeat like champion.

    • of those 3 technique, like a grinding machine, simple operation but perfect in grinds everything, and the Juice is served :D

  • 12 : 10.. Coach Javier is very smart to introduce UFC title shot to newbie wkwk

  • Khabib making everybody reach specially Javier Good for them

  • I would like to eat habib Cookies

  • His mindset is the same as Demitrious Johnson. So humble but yet years beyond the competition. Glad he is getting respect an not over looked anymore. Like DJ. Bring the dub home my mans got this. Dope role model for the kids too. True definition of a champion all the way around.

  • Another great interview by Swick. But please, stop with the Khabib vs. Mayweather talk. If that isn't the biggest most obvious money grab in the history of combat sports, I don't know what is. And it's very hypocritical coming from Khabib, bc he always says he doesn't fight for money. If he wants to box, than box another MMA guy in a ring or something.

  • Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagamedov 2: “HERE WE GOO!!! Green trunks for the southpaw, The Notorious Conor McGregor, black trunks for the championship Khabib. Conor relaxed and smiling, OOOHHHHHH!!! CONOR SLEPT HIM! AND NEW, UFC LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD!”

    • And oh shit it was a dream

  • Justin beat Tony and looked great but everyone seems to forget Tony cut weight twice. That wasn’t the Tony we all know. Now people think this fight will be close. Unless Justin catches Khabib Justin will get what every other person that fought Khabib....he’ll be mauled.

  • From Angola, we love Khabib.

  • I thought the special surprise Dana had already kind of leaked that he was hoping to have Khabib and McGregor coach Ultimate Fighter - and Khabib shot that all the way down.

  • I love mike’s questions, very personal inspirational, and respectfully. Great job man.

  • 29:0☝️

  • Just for introduction to khabib iam subscribing your channel..❤️❤️❤️keep it up bro...

  • You know this guy khabib is the guy whose brain is locked in locking you, he is not take any pressure about anything, whether you big a** puncher like connor, khabib gonna come to your face and than lock you, you will try get up, you will try trick, but again he will lock you, lock lock lock AND STILL.... This is something like Master IPs style, he says 3 technique is enough he knows and he can beat any technique with his 3 techniques, because he always practice these 3 technique and he is not a master but a Grand-master of those 3 technique, like a grinding machine, simple operation but perfect in grinds everything, and the Juice is served :D

  • This is human nature, human chase for better and better. When you are better everyone with you, but when you are not better and someone else is better you are a thing of past. No appreciation of human effort and the blood, only Allah true friend and appreciator of human effort.

  • 3:45 He said Dagistan not pakistan wrong caption though 🤪

    • Machine caption ... It always hapen auto generated subtitle

  • I like your style Mike. First one I have seen and subscribed immediately. Good down to earth questions from an ex fighter makes for better interviews imo. 👍

    • Welcome aboard! Tons of great interviews in our back catalog, and more on the way...

    • Just noticed the time stamps too, definitely appreciate that too 👍

  • Great interview Mike. When this pandemic is over I want to get my little brother out to AKA Thailand to train. I didn’t know you had a podcast, but I do now! Thank you brother.

  • Great interview Mike, I’m so glad to see you have a successful podcast. From your fights to your tutorial videos on how to properly drain your ears, it’s always been a blast, and your adventures with Pearson and Big Nog are legendary(Goggles in his pocket!).

  • Hello Mike, you should get back in there

  • Thank you 🙏🏾

  • People Gaethje is a guy that has 19 KO's to his credit thus far! Let that sink in! 19 times he has knocked out different guys in his fights! Do you guys think that Khabib will withstand Gaethje's KO power when he makes a solid punch to his chin, or better yet makes Khabib's head swivel after he strikes him? No. A thousand times no! Khabib will go down like a sack of potatoes and that will be the end of the fight!

    • @Belajar Bahasa Crazy.

    • @AC Cortes 😂😂😂

    • @abrahamgoesmoo No dude. You're just crazy.

    • @AC Cortes dude your delusional. Have a good night lol

    • @abrahamgoesmoo WTH does that matter to you?

  • Islam most likely beats everyone in the lightweight division except Habib. That is exactly why he cant get a fight.

  • i love how u actually have a connection with the fighters not the typical backstabbing media bullshit

  • Khabib, one of the toughest fighter in the world, yet his humble as pie. How can you not like this guy?

  • you are a great soul

  • BuRger

  • I got the sleeping and eating part down.
