How come Tyron Woodley isn’t a bigger star than Khabib. Tyron is a much better version of Khabib.

    Anyone who beats McNugget will become 10x more popular, that’s why Khabib got 4+ million Instagram followers or whatever in 3 days.

    "can be" sure, both are two of my favorite fighters but Khabib has been way more exciting than Woodley recently. Woodley's fights against Maia/Wonderboy 1/Wonderboy 2 are WAY more boring than any fight Khabib has ever been in. Which sucks because Woodley can easily be exciting as fuck and has the power to knock you dead in any second.

    He's a damn fool. He says a lot of stupid things. Every time he talks he loses fans or keeps potentials away.

    because when Tyrone opens his mouth he sounds like a dumbass and when Khabib opens his mouth he sounds like a badass.

    easy... he's american. Combat sports just aren't popular here.

    Conor, Khabib, GSP... they all have entire nations backing them.

    Zabit has just as many IG followers as Woodley.

    They're 100% different personalities and they don't fight at all alike, and they have different culture and different ideals and different life-styles and about 743 other things too.

    Plus Woodley is kinda a whiney 'I Will Always Be One of the Oppressed' kinda guy, and Khabib is just stoic and low-key and keeps himself to himself and is fairly typically Russian in that regard.

    So...yeah...just nothing alike. Apart from they're both 5'9" to 5'10" tall. Ish.

    we all know why. TS you know why.
    (psssssst it's because he's a___)

    Legit though, he can turn it around even at his age. Dude just needs to grow some personality.
    Edit: even saying nothing is better than saying the wrong thing. He tends to say the wrong thing.

    Take away Russian fans and Khabib is a Jake Shields.


    US doesn't care too much about backing it's stars because there are so many.
    We are used to having stars so we can pick and choose whom to support.

    Places like Russia and Ireland have a star born once a decade so it is different.

    i feel like you wanna just say because he is black and people are racist. Khabib isnt a Big star...he might become one now...but he isnt by any means a BIG star....He really wasnt all that popular until he beat connor.

    Lol it's not racism. People used to view Silva and Jones as the GOATS so GTFO with the racism talk.

    Khabib is more likeable because he's true to himself. Woodley is a great fighter but he has an annoying personality and seems fake.
