Well emotions are big and after all that hard work to get to that point or knowing that it is over it can take over someone's emotions. That is what happened with Khabib where after losing his father and promising his mother that he would stop, it came to the surface.
Well either way it looks like whomever wins Nevada wins the election and if not, Trump is going to demand a Wisconsin recount due to the fact that there have been more votes cast then registered voters in the state. Like I said though if Trump wins all other states still up for grabs then it's game over.
I figured he had a retirement plan and had made some smart investments with all of those millions of dollars that he made from fighting. Also I'm sure that if necessary, Putin or Fedor would be willing to give him a government job with regulating MMA. But yeah these Russian fighters just enjoy going into the frozen tundras to live a simple fight.
Yeah except that if I recall from an interview, Khabib is planning on going to sheep farming or something like that which if it makes a living all the more power to him. As for Putin and Fedor, the Last Emperor did ask the permission of the President of Russia for his return to MMA. But yeah it's possible Khabib is getting an offer from Putin.
I can't say I pay attention to russia's state of affairs. But.
When international sanctions were imposed on russia. Russia became dependent on china for food. It gave china and bankers leverage on Putin.
If someone like Khabib could boost russia's farming industry in a way which made them independent of chinese influence he could be a national hero a 2nd time over. There could be a real need for that. A need which could be an angle behind Khabib's farming aspirations.
Anyways. Nvm. I doubt anyone is aware of these issues. Pointless to talk about. But don't be surprised if you see more obvious signs of Khabib being given privilege from someone like Putin in the future.
I'm pretty sure Khabib was just going to do some local farming to support his family and wasn't going into some wider economic plan. Also knowing how the Russian economy is that all doesn't surprise me considering they are still recovering from their years of communist planned economic policies. They still haven't recovered.
If you've ever heard stories of north koreans resorting to cannibalism in years with bad crop harvest and defectors being infected with tapeworms and other health issues. Its due to sanctions. Russia has dealt with similar issues if to a lesser extent after economic sanctions were imposed on them.
The issue with russian and chinese famine with Stalin/Mao is under communism the state owns and controls everything. Normal people were not allowed to grow their own food during famine as the state owned and controlled all the land and would not give them permission. People starved by the millions. Meanwhile in cuba the communist government took a different stance giving cubans permission to grow their own food on state owned land. Even today the cuban government owns all the land but the people have their own form of guerilla gardening / land management which makes cuba somewhat self sufficient in terms of agriculture.
If you watch MMA fighters on social media. You might notice how one of them starts doing something. Archery. Shooting guns. Triathalons. Mountain biking. Whatever. Another MMA fighter takes it up as a hobby. And another. Before you know it the hobby has become trendy and everyone is doing it.
Khabib going into farming could be the same. Khabib will post pics on instagram with his tractors, livestock and combines. Whatever. Others in russia do the same as it becomes trendy. Before you know it lots of people who otherwise would never have imagined themselves growing things or farming will be doing it. Smart leaders and politicians know and recognize this. Even drug dealers know this. Which is why they always target the most popular kids in school to peddle drugs.
