    Not because I dislike him or anything, but as a big FUCK YOU to the UFC.

    It would show them that an MMA star can become bigger than them. The shortness of his career would mean that one doesn't have be a slave for the UFC anymore. One can become a big enough star to be set for life without a full length career.

    Pretty sure the UFC's bottom line this past year or so already taught them a fighter can be bigger than them.

    Why do you feel he needs to say "Fuck You" to the UFC?

    From every single piece of public information, the UFC has always been good to Conor, and actually put more money into promoting him than any other fighter. They even put out a video of him in a car with Dana White before his UFC Debut (or right after, whatever).

    They have also allowed him to renegotiate his contract along the way.

    And the MMA Star isn't bigger than the UFC lol

    So Conor would go make a ton of money in BOXING, splitting it with the UFC, and that will show the UFC that an MMA Star is bigger than them?

    If it pisses Dana and/or WME off, I hope it happens.

    Umm... I thought you will be smarter TS. The reason it would be funny to retire right after Floyd fight is... The Sherdog would be the most salty place on earth. Like dead sea of seas.

    Can't argue UFC is as slimey and as greedy as they come.

    They've been good to him, but they're not that good to other fighters. They just have it coming.

    Plus they're supposedly taking a cut of his purse from a boxing fight, which is bullshit.

    My prediction is he beats Mayweather by knockout in the last round. Dana White comes into the ring to raise his hand, only to then bash him over the head with a chair when his back is turned. After that, a bunch of WWE wrestlers storm the ring for a beat down which begins the merger between UFC and WWE.

    And he (Conor) probably would not take any MMA fights in-between the set up to a potential Floyd/Conor II. But this is all hypothetical, and most likely I doubt we even see Floyd/Conor I.

    Without the UFC Conor wouldn't be what he is, sorry but there isn't another promotion like it love it or hate it. But I wouldn't care if Conor retired. He wins the belt and doesn't defend it. I want to see fighters fight, period. If Conor fights Floyd and earns 100 million, congrats no either defend the belt or go away.

    You are not an mma fan you are an asshole... as much as I dislike Conor he has always put on exciting fights and I want to see him fight Aldo, Frankie, and khabib.

    You sir are not an mma fan

    he wont be able to retire, because dfw is not stupid.
    he signed the contract probably with some clauses stating that mcg can get his share from the boxing match only when he completes another 5 fights in the ufc after the boxing match.

    er... everyone already knows that. There are plenty of MMA fighters who became millionaires... only they chose not to leave MMA.

    The only thing this will be, is UFC learning not to invest so much money to hype one guy only, as he might be a thankless bastard and leave them

    Or better yet, they will create a new Conor, but simply BLOCK any attempt to fight outside MMA. So no millions in one fight, no goodbye.

    I don't think he can just hold on to Conor's money like that. I think he's just gonna take a big fat percentage of Conor's multimillion dollar purse.

    Conor and all of these fighters signed a contract. Why do fans love to white knight for grown men who willingly signed a contract. And who do what they love for a living?

    I always wanted to be a medieval knight. Let me live my fucking dream. Don't come into my thread with all this negativity.
