Conor will probably get destroyed, but can we put an end to the premise that he is scared/ducks?

    He could easily cash in on another Diaz fight right now, but the man is coming back from a two year layoff to fight against a killer, a russian wrecking machine, a guy that could potentially ruin him, a guy who can/wants to physically disfigure him, end his hype and ruin his reputation, a guy who may very well be on top of him for 25 minutes raining down hellfire only to have the internet and public crucify Conor afterwards like poor Ronda .

    From the way Khabib sounds in videos, with his ice cold sociopathic demeanor, he literally wants reenact an ISIS video and basically publicly execute Conor: destroy his reputation, his face, his livelihood. Everyone including Conor must be perfectly aware that there is a very good possibility of this happening with his level of top control, GNP and grappling -- Khabib is the one to do it.

    Yet, I believe that beneath all the bravado, McGregor truly has a warrior spirit and it's not just about the money. There's a lot of guys he could be fighting and maybe he'd only make 80% as much money, but he would assume much less risk and possible damage to his future financial status and health.

    Conor Anthony McGregor is going out on his shield like the brave 300 who marched to an almost certain death because deep down he is a warrior who wants to test himself, and that is admirable for a man with as much money and opportunity as he currently enjoys.

    He sure ducked defending two titles in the UFC.

    Other than that he will apparently fight anyone since Khabib is the worst possible match up for him. My guess is he wants the most money possible so will take the biggest fights even if he has a big chance of losing.

    Conor would be ducking if he was the one defending the belt. He only fights when he has nothing to lose

    I think he prefers to be the underdog.

    Conor is pretty awesome, I'm just glad he's fighting again. Win or lose it's like the circus just came to town :).

    Yeah. Win or lose Conor is not a duck because he is fighting an undefeated guy who is great at what he sucks at

    He will always be accused of being a duck.

    While it is true that he should have defended I think it’s pretty clear he isn’t afraid to fight anyone in in his weight class.

    TS, you're right... But haters gonna hate. It is what it is.

    This should've been put to bed when Conor took on Mendes on short notice after Aldo pulled out. Mendes was also meant to be Conor's kryptonite; best wrestler in the division, good striking, good chin, good cardio. Completely different match up to Aldo. A lot of fighters would not accept that replacement on two weeks notice, especially for a championship match. Conor did.

    The haters on Sherdog were SURE that Mendes was going to destroy Conor. Then, when Conor won, Mendes instantly became too small, coming off the couch, his chin was cracked by Aldo etc etc etc

    If Conor beats Khabib (big if, IMO, but certainly possible), all you'll hear about is how bad Khabib's striking is, how he's always left his chin in the air, how he was tailor made for Conor.

    It was the same with Fedor, Anderson, GSP, Jones... They were always ducking someone. Their next challenge was going to dethrone them, until they didn't and instantly became cans.

    Haters going to hate.

    He's not scared of anyone and anybody who thinks that is an idiot, he simply knows his worth and his path to more money, he won the featherweight belt and went straight up to fight for the lightweight one because he knew it'd open doors, took a late replacement fight and lost embarrassingly so wanted to avenge that, hardly the move of a coward, he then got the shot he initially wanted which opened doors and led to the multimillion pound boxing fight against Mayweather, this is all common sense something this board lacks.
    Oh and upon his return he's fighting Khabib the most feared lightweight ever who may or may not embarrass him.

    You can't please the sherdog bitches though, the same people complained GSP wouldn't move up to fight Anderson and that the UFC would allow Aldo to fight Pettis.

    Only a moron thinks he "ducked" competition, if by that one means he was afraid. He was milking his success as much as possible though.

    Why do you want the forum to be more united OP? It's much more fun when nobody agrees and we just have slap fights all day long.

    This is how Sherdog looks like if people agree:

    OP: Khabib probably smeshes Conor
    1st: Yeah I agree
    2nd: But Conor is no duck
    3rd: He sure isn't, respect
    THE END.

    vs. Sherdog when everyone disagreed:

    OP: Khabib probably smeshes McNeverdefend
    1st: LMAO McGOAT KTFO pull out merchant in first, account bet me you bitch
    2nd: Lol McDuck will get raped and retire your retarded
    1st: suck my dick 2nd
    OP: DEAL, if Khabib wins you post porn and get bant, if McDuck wins I do the same
    1st: DEAL, make sure you post tentacle porn
    2nd: you want other man to suck your dick? U homo?
    1st: STFU u faggot
    2nd: gif response
    1st: more gif response
    ...

    Which Sherdog do you prefer?

    I was going to agree with OP but after reading this I have to say:

    OP you fucking coward, pick a side. Don't be a bitch like the McNuggets and call him what he is...a duck.

    Well that is a pretty stupid "guess" of yours. There are many other paths he could have taken that would have been less risky for more money.

    Conor won't be "ruined" or "disfigured" by Khabib...because he knows how to tap.
