    Warning mcnuthugger detected

    Heres the problem with your logic

    If hes this stud althete thats taking on only the best and wants the hardest fights then..

    A) why didnt he rematch an 10 year undefeated champion in aldo but rematched diaz at weight he doesnt compete at normally?.. very suspect

    B) why not defend your belts agaisnt the challengers in your division they are ranked 1 thru 15 , as the toughest yet he didnt defend any belt ever...

    C) why would anyone , whos a current champion in there sport entertain the idea of fighting a former champion in another sport whos 15 plus years older and was retired for 2 years when challenged?..


    Ill tell you why, because Mcgregor is a really a coward and whore in fighters clothing..he made sure nothing was really at risk and chased only money not true competition..he shit on the sport that made him and is a disgrace to MMA.. when he fought nate he did so at 170lbs , so in the event he lost he could always just blame the weight.. which he did both fights..when he beat aldo go watch the replay of the finish and mcgregors reaction in the post in cage interview he litterally knows he almost got koed himself..and admits the guy is fast you can see him breathing a sigh of relief why? Becuase he knows he got lucky and thats when he decided he wont ever step into the cage with aldo again..then he gets a title shot agaisnt alvarez coming off a lose and no wins in the ufcs 155 division still waiting for an explaination on that one..dont try and make this guy something hes not..he came , he conned, and left..

    Yes but the problem is he didn't want to lol. Asking for easy fights and appearing scared to fight the top contenders isn't a great way to market yourself.

    He is Not the best fighter at LW. He is very beatable but he will avoid the guys that could beat him.

    Uh he’s been ducking the best guys for years. What happened to him at 155? He has zero title defenses in total in MMA. Failed thread.

    You need to take a break. Think about stuff that isn’t related to Conor.

    Conor was the A-side in the Mayweather fight lmao!? There’s a reason that Floyd by all estimations made at least twice as much as McGregor. Nuthuggers are fucking amazing with the shit they can convince themselvhes with.

    Do you live in a fucking bubble or is MMA the only sport you follow? Most sports media outlets didn’t even have a clue who McGregor was. This is fact.

    Wrong.

    Conor was protected by Dana during his rise through the rankings; he was booked against non-wrestlers and the wrestlers that did exist in the division were conveniently booked against other opponents. The fact that the only wrestler he faced was on short notice is not a coincidence, especially when you look at what said wrestler did before gassing out.

    Conor fought low risk stylistic matchups with full camps and high risk stylistic matchups only on short camps. Conor had the entire promotional backing of the UFC and just happened to be Irish (and given how many faux-Irish-Americans there are, he got huge PPV numbers). There's a reason Conor doesn't want to defend any title he wins: the UFC can't protect champions with booking.

    Safe booking and promotional backing can make almost any fighter a star, just look at how Ngannou was booked when he started facing fighters in the top ten.

    Nate don’t sell lol.. Why you think he fight Nate? He thought Nate would be easy fight. nate stand up a just bleed fighter, don’t go to the ground unless his opponent goes to the ground. Nate has big fan base can sell and he trash talk to promote the fight. He wouldn’t give mendes rematch with full camp. Conor almost lost that fight until mendes gassed. Fighter say that not about the money are full of shit. Conor always been about his money. if he was not he would fight for free and fight just for his pride.

    You’re probably right about the haters.
    I myself love watching Conor fight but didn’t buy into the Champ Champ nonsense.

    And this is why Conor's fans are among the dumbest around.

    Conor didn't go for the killers, he went for the belt, because he knew that was the key to him being famous.

    He went for Aldo, because Aldo was champ.

    He fought Mendes for a belt. The interim belt.

    He wanted RDA because he was the champ at the time, not because he was a killer.

    He fought Diaz because he thought it was an easy fight for him, and because he wanted to keep making money.

    Same with the rematch, he wanted another big payday by rematching Diaz.

    He then wanted Eddie, not because he was a killer, but because Eddie held the belt..

    He wanted Floyd because it was a big payday, not because he wanted a challenge.

    And now that he's the champ, he no longer wants to fight killers. He doens't want to fight anyone.

    Conor chases fame, not glory. But you fans are too dumb to realize this. That's why he's sitting there now, not wanting to fight anyone because he doesn't want to risk his fame anymore. A true champion would keep risking it to prove he's still the best. Conor won't, because he needs a big payday and an easy fight that is winnable for him. What a pussy.

    First of all, this is a thread to praise Conor for taking the hardest match up... which is what I am disputing and what you are trying to justify why it did NOT happen.
    <TheWire1>
    So it seems you agree with my point.
    <LikeReally5><[analyzed}>

    Bottom line: Conor did NOT take the hardest match up. He took the one he perceived being an easy fight precisely because he would have a lot to gain (money) and nothing much to lose (since this excuse of taking last minute replacement is obviously good... point in case, it is the one you are using).

    I don't give a shit about anyone.

    I see blatant holes In peoples logic / mentality and I expose them. Whether It's Conor or anyone else, It's really that simple. Done the same thing for Fedor, BJ Penn, Bruce lee and countless others. people believe a lot of crazy shit In general, they're extremely biased or emotion filled In their analysis and I have a low tolerance for stupidity, that's all It really comes down to. Conor just happens to attract more extremists than others and has for a long time.

    It’s hilarious seeing how upset some people are with Conor. The dude rolled in, made a load of p and can now kick back, enjoy life and effectively pick and choose his fights.

    Keep crying cos a fighter has managed to get themselves in to a position where they can’t\won’t be pressured by promoters and whiny just bleeders

    or the more logical conclusion Is that he wants to be paid In accordance to what he feels hes worth, similar to how high level boxers / mayweather have been paid for a long time. It's no secret that the UFC has fucked its fighters In that sense and what Conor's asking for Is something that the UFC has never given to any other fighter In terms of percentages. Relatively common amongst boxers though. That's why things like the Ali act exist to prevent promoters / organizations from pocketing most of the profits for themselves and protect the fighters. Conor just came off one of the most lucrative fights of all time, he isn't gonna come back and fight for what he was making before. He wants to be paid similarly to how Floyd was paid with showtime and quite honestly, at this stage of his fame and success, he deserves It. He's easily the biggest star In combat sports at the moment.

    The Issue with that Is It's obviously a lengthy negotiation process on both ends. It has nothing to do with being afraid, everything to do with money and business.

    On a side note,

    Tony matches up terribly against Conor. People trying to argue that he's afraid of him are ridiculous. A welterweight sized version of DIaz was a tougher stylistic opponent. Not to mention 20 pounds bigger.

    Khabib Is the fight to make. Again, that's a tough fight for both guys..where both guys have their way to win the fight. Modern striker vs grappler.

    I would imagine the UFC / Conor Is expecting Khabib to beat Tony and then making that fight for September when Conor Is saying he'll return, giving time for the contract negotiations to play out.
