    By the happy days reference i mean, Are conors best days behind him. If he loses to khabib he will have lost to 3 of the last 4 guys hes faced, on the wrong side of 30, and in a division full of his stylistic kryptonite imo. Im calling it now before the fight, conor will lose to khabib and never regain the star power hes had regardless of what he does after.

    "3 of the last 4 guys he's faced".......shit you jumped the shark in math class my man.

    Edit: you do know boxing isn't mma and losing an exhibition match against a 49-0 atg boxer isn't an issue?

    Diaz 2, Floyd, Alverez, Khabib. That's two if he loses to khabib which one of em doesn't even matter.

    This thread is about conors starpower and profitability as well as his athleticism. Losing to floyd via ko hurt his status and marketability.

    You can say it isnt an issue but those memes are still on his twitter or instagram everytime he posts..

    Conor is going to make this look easy, despite Khabib being the 2nd best LW in the world.

    Neither Nate nor anyone else will be competitive with Conor at 155. You say this division is full of stylistic kryptonite for him.....name them then. Poirier? Eddie?

    Lmao...

    I don't think you get the term "jumping the shark".

    Anyways, If Conor beats Khabib, he will be 10-1 in the UFC, still only double champ ever, only having a single loss in a weightclass that doesn't actually exists, and against Floyd Mayweather in boxing.

    Even if he loses he still has the Nate trilogy that will do huge numbers. And could do a rematch with Aldo or Holloway. He could easily finish the last 3 fights of his UFC contract and make an average of $20 million per fight. Another $60 million on top of what he made for the Floyd fight. Why would he even want to fight again with that much in the bank?

    It absolutely didn't. In fact most people were amazed he lasted so long with Floyd and it actually raised his status.

    Who needs star power when they have money power?

    And with 26 million instagram followers he will always be the Kardashian of MMA.

    Thats why this question is interesting. This fight could be the turning point of conors career. Lose and he was a fad who got where he is thanks to promotion. Win and hes beaten the unbeatable at 155.

    If you're wrong, what happens? What's in it for the people reading this? Why share a thought that you think Conor might lose and therefore may not be as popular as when he won? Something that would happen to every fighter, sports star, business person, human of any kind...

    Do you mean he won't ever sell as many PPVs? What do you mean he won't regain star power? Aside from posting you think Khabib will win, you haven't really said anything.

    He was a former champion at Featherweight and Lightweight. What do you mean fad? You write words with zero explanation.

    Excuses will come immediatly after he lose to Khabib,same as they did against Floyd.

    Some were sure that he would KO Floyd and after the fight they were happy with the amount of punches.
    This is what I expect from a real nuthugger

    The way he lost was kind of an issue. He got finished by a much smaller guy who NEVER finishes people.
