Kelvin Gastelum has hopped on board the Team Khabib train. Sure, he’s seen Khabib fight but he’s never trained with him. Even still, the legend of Khabib’s herculean strength when he gets a hold of you, continue to make its way around MMA circles. Based on word-of-mouth alone, Gastelum is riding the Khabib train until the wheels fall off.
No one is saying that it is a foregone conclusion that Khabib will beat Conor McGregor. However, Khabib’s body of work speaks for itself. Even in Khabib’s last fight with Al Iaquinta, Joe Rogan drew the ire of fans when he did everything in his power to try and find weaknesses in Khabib’s game.
Gastelum recognizes the skill and strength and gave his honest prediction on the Khabib vs Conor fight.
**Cue the Conor fans hating Gastelum for life now.**
