Gracie Breakdown: McGregor & Khabib

Gracie Breakdown: McGregor & Khabib

Gracie Breakdown has provided valuable perspective on viral events and UFC fights through the years. This time is no different as the two brothers offered their keen insight onto what went down at UFC 229:

“How the biggest fight in UFC history became the biggest disaster in UFC history, and what it all means for MMA after 25 years. Share if you agree.” – brothers captioned the video. Of course the video is referring to the what came after – Khabib’s ridiculous dive into the audience and attempt to stomp Dillon Danis on the spot.

Rener Gracie subsequently added:

I want to amend/clarify something I said in the Gracie Breakdown (link in bio): “…according to the fans, if it happens before the fight, it’s acceptable fight hype, but if it happens after, it’s disrespectful.” Even though this is the widespread belief in MMA culture, it does not mean it’s right. If we’re going to allow ALL lines to be crossed by one side in the buildup of a fight, then we can’t act surprised when the other side crosses the line after the fight. Even though it was sad to see Khabib’s moment ruined after a spectacular performance, his actions should serve as one of two valuable lesson to everyone in MMA – 1) Fighters, fans, coaches and promoters need to reconsider what we perceive as “acceptable” when it comes to promoting a fight between two athletes, or 2) If “anything goes” before the fight, then fighter, fans, coaches and promoters need to be ready to deal with the consequences after the fight.

This is of course in stark contrast to Renzo Gracie – who supports Khabib’s actions:

And our champion confirms once again… “A great friend doesn’t pull you out of a fight… He comes in with a flying kick.” @khabib_nurmagomedov is the man… Congratulations my brother on an amazing win, you never disappoint.
