On Saturday, UFC put on their latest show, a Fight Night headlined by Derek Brunson vs Kevin Holland in the middleweight division.
During the fight Holland turned to Khabib, sat ringside with UFC president Dana White, to ask him for some advice as Brunson was beating him easily with wrestling skills.
During the feed White actually got up and told the Russian 'I can't watch anymore of this, I'll see you in the back.'
In the 25 minute fight, Brunson scored scored six takedowns and remained in control on the ground for more than three minutes in four of the five rounds.
In two of those rounds the control was actually more than four minutes, leading to the 37-year-old winning a unanimous points decision 49-45, 49-46, 49-46.
Whilst the manner of victory was so overwhelming, it clearly didn't excite White, considering his decision to leave before the end.

After the win, Brunson, who is now on a four fight winning streak since losing to middleweight champ Israel Adesanya in 2018, called for top five opposition.
"I wanted to knock him out," the victor said, "Everyone can't be pretty. Dana White, Mick Maynard, Sean Shelby, I've been putting in mad work in this division for so long. I wasn't really too excited about this matchup.
"I wanted a top five. They probably didn't like my performance too much so give me a top five and let's see what happens."
Holland though, was just left begging for Khabib's help whilst he was still in the octagon.

In the past the UFC have battled hard against illegal streaming of events, Khabib can obviously get away with more than everyone else.
Considering that even White wasn't enjoying the main event enough to stick around, can they really blame others for not wanting to pay?
