    @ the 20 min mark, ariel point blank asks Conor if he's coming back to the UFC by December.... and conors reaction tells me that he's never coming back. You can see it in his expression, body language, in his vague/dodgy answer, and in his eyes.

    he's never coming back to defend the 55 title.

    ariel:..... "is the next one mma?, possibly in December?"

    conor <shifty eyes>:.... "yeah, i dont know, who knows..... we'll see."

    then goes on about how he's going to easily clear a hundred million.

    Well, actually you are correct, TS.

    I know that habit of touching the beard that I'm going either to lie or say something uncomfortable

    It probably depends on how bad Floyd beats him.

    If Floyd makes him look like a child, then it will probably be difficult for him to get a mega-pay day boxing fight next, and he may go back to MMA. On the other hand, if he does well, the boxing opportunities would bring in a lot more income than MMA.

    It is not a question he can answer honestly and definitively until the Mayweather fight is concluded.

    If he gets the KO against Mayweather, then why should he ever fight in the UFC? The UFC will not be able to afford him.

    If Conor says he is gonna fight mma before the end of the year, he is going to fight mma before end of the year.

    It all depends who he will be pressured to fight, there are some fighters he seems to want no part of.
    If he can come back and fight Diaz yet again he probably will.

    saying "we'll see, maybe" is not definitive

    He would have to be crazy to ever fight again after a payday like this. A smart man would take this golden lottery ticket and move into something that doesn't require getting punched in the face.

    The only way I see him ever fighting again is if by some bizarre stroke of fate, he wins, or he gets beaten badly (a pretty much certain outcome) and his massive ego prevents him from ending his career as a joke meme....

    Lying through his teeth when he days he's proud to be in association with the ufc for this fight. Hes literally forced to be in association with them for the rest of his natural life, if he continues boxing, and never steps foot I'm the octagon again.

    I'm sure hes so happy that they're taking half of his earnings.

    And yeah, I just can't picture him getting I'm the ocatgom again. If there was ever a fighter that's bigger than the sport, it's Conor.

    Hes way yoo expensive for the UFC. I don't think he'll ever want to go back to the pay format they have. How in tf does he only get paid 3 mil, amd PPV pts. with the ridiculous ppv numbers he puts up? Thats downright criminal.

    the thing is, when conor says he will do something, he does it... people react in different ways to it.

    Damn, we all knew Sherdog was full of qualified fight coaches, pick up artists, performance trainers and now psychologists? This site is AMAZING

    Well, we are not psychologist, but it's pretty obvious that the chances for Conor to retire after upcoming fight is pretty huge.

    If you are a smart gambler, put your money on that. The more you trying to insult those ppl who predict the outcome, the more you are showing to us in how ugly a Conroe nut huggers can be.

    Conner won't be able to stay out of the spotlight. And he's still too young to quit. And all the 145-170 fighters will continue to call him out since it's their biggest payday fight. He won't let them shit talk. And Conner likes nice tings. When you get $100 million, you realize the stuff you really want requires $1 Billion. I don't see him walking away.
