Khabib adds 3mn Instagram followers in just 24 hours

Postby PainDog » Wed Oct 10, 2018 10:33 pm

According to the article below from RT Khabib had around 6.8 million followers prior to the McGregor fight, it has now reached 11.6 million.

Many people around the world arent just celebrating Khabib's win but also his actions after the fight. For many people not just those in Russia, the Caucasus, other former soviet countries, or Muslims, there are areas where you cant go with trash talk which includes ethnicity, family, and religion.

Even in Conor's own country where ethnic and religious conflicts have resulted in thousands of deaths, bringing up the religious and ethnic conflicts would likely not sit well with most.

The narrative of Khabib's conflict with Conor has become that of a simple, humble, traditional man finally standing up to a loud mouth bully.

Conor going to those places and being the polarizing figure he is, is what built this fight and what has given Khabib the sudden surge in popularity.

Dana is likely more pleased than ever. Like Nate Diaz before Khabib got the Conor rub. Khabib has a greater international appeal and will benefit more from this conflict than Diaz.

Khabib Nurmagomedov gained a whopping 3 million extra followers on Instagram in just 24 hours after his stunning victory over Irish star Conor McGregor in their MMA megafight at UFC 229 in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
UFC lightweight king Nurmagomedov is now a verfified heavyweight on social media, boasting 10. 1 million Instagram followers.

The figure is still some way behind vanquished foe McGregor’s total of 27.9 million followers, although given the Russian’s relatively unknown status outside MMA circles before the pair’s megafight, the increase signals he is clearly capturing the public imagination.

‘The Eagle’ has racked up some big numbers with his recent posts, including more than a million ‘likes’ for a message in which he “apologizes” for his antics in sparking the mass post-fight brawl on Saturday night.

:lol: I think he is just trolling Dana, Conor and company. He is basically calling attention to all of the outrageous Conor antics. I don't think Khabib will do anything other than defend his title and hopefully make the UFC and NSAC accountable.

Honestly if Khabib fights in the UFC again I would not be surprised to see him break a million ppvs. He is attracting a fan base of Muslims, Russian speaking people, as well as anyone who likes to see a good fight. Allot of people at Linker say he is boring but even his decisions are decent to me. Booking him against Ferguson and having the Poirier Diaz winner on standby would be a good move once his suspension is up.

Khabib's legendary status keeps getting exaggerated...now according to wikipedia he speaks Arabic though the only Arabic he has spoke are Islamic phrases. His manager Abdulaziz is from Egypt, Arabic is his first language, and he never is seen speaking with Khabib in Arabic...only what I can say is more or less broken English.

They also claim he speaks Dagestani...which isnt a language. Dagestan has several official languages Russian Aghul, Avar, Azerbaijani, Chechen, Dargwa, Kumyk, Lezgian, Lak, Nogai, Rutul, Tabasaran, Tat, Tsakhur.

Would be like saying someone from India speaks Indian....

Whatever language he was speaking to Artem (Russian I assume) put the fear of Muhammad into him.

Do you have any insight as to why Artem backed down so fast in front of Khabib (besides the fact he was outnumbered 20-1)? Does it anything to do with the relationship between the two countries and some of the people that Khabib may be surrounded by?
