    I don't care if you love or hate Conor he brought in eyes....Without him all the other fighters who were benefiting from all the extra coverage MMA was getting are all fading away. He is the only fighter besides Ronda to get love from the real sports media...... Say what you want he wasn't kidding when he said I am the UFC right now.

    Conor is a mediocre fighter who got special treatment by the ufc. They made him and they will live without him

    i look forward to fans being interested in the bouts again. hopefully the ESPN Contenders like series leads more in that direction.

    meanwhile, how about we talk about Conor when (if?) he signs to fight again?

    UFC wishes they can "Make Superstars" just use your brain you will understand if they control the real sports media coverage even getting on ESPN means nothing without the "Sports Media's Blessing" buddy.......

    Eventually someone else will come along and become the new Conor. It's only a matter of time really. That's how these things work.

    People expect great pre-fight hype and a great fight for every card now. Maybe because PPVs are thinner now but it is sad that people don't get excited for just a great fight anymore

    Bobby Knucks and Yoel put on a classic fight last time out and are about to go at it again and no one on here could give a fuck. It's sad because back a few years ago we'd all be drooling over that matchup especially after Yoel absolutely murdered Salthold the way he did

    Ask all the other UFC fighters if they want Conor back.... $$$$$$$$ matters to these "Fighters" I love Chael but he is a roid head give me a break he is entertaining but if you hang your hat on what Uncle Chael has to say.....Good luck

    Conor got 25x more coverage fighting little Diaz then when GSP returned to fight for the Gold just let that sink in....

    They needed Shamroxk
    They needed Tito
    They needed Chuck
    They needed Randy
    They needed GSP
    They needed Lesnar
    They needed Rousey
    They needed Jones
    They needed McGregor

    It's not that surprising, they have never had a pleathora of stars. They have always needed someone to save the day. Fading interest, too much content, too many fighters and divisions to follow etc. They are just not very good at promoting anyone that doesn't do the lion's share of promotion themselves and there aren't that many fighters that can do it

    The UFC is doing fine without him. No fighter is bigger than the UFC, they're just cogs in the UFC machine. UFC 224 would have sold the way it did if Conor fought the week before or after.

    I disagree, Conor's fans desperately need him but the UFC and MMA have been through the darkest of dark times and survived. What they need to do is move on, the sooner the better
