If Conor had no intention of coming back why would he be doing 20 rounds of bjj sparring?

    I've always thought he would come back. Just don't know against who.

    He clearly loves the spotlight too much to stay away. And the UFC will probably get desperate enough to give him that promoter's share he wants, which does seem fair. If you sell a million ppv's with the guy and 100k without him, then clearly he deserves a massive share.

    So he could upload something to his social media and keep people talking about him.

    I don't understand the logic of people who think he's not coming back.

    the logic is simple

    he is afraid to be embarrassed. which he most likely will no matter who he fights... his most prominent options are khabib and gsp

    he skirrid bruh

    And since he doesnt need the money... why would he do it?

    I enjoy Conor's fight but am not exactly on the "Conor bandwagon". That being said, I hope he beats Khabib. It'd be pretty fucking epic and hard to deny. I'm just get mildly bothered when ppl deny Conors achievements. Hes had a pretty damn impressive run. Not perfect certainly, but there are plenty of ppl who act like he's a "d" league fighter.

    Because he's lying and trying to stay relevant for his social media followers?

    How do you know that TV image isn't just for show? Ask Pauli Malignaggi about how Conor likes to pick and choose what photos and videos get leaked to the public. It could easily have said Round 4 / 1000...doesn't mean he actually completed those rounds.

    I doubt it. He rematches Nate at the same weight that he was "embarrassed" at before then fought the greatest boxer ever in s sport that he doesn't even compete at. IMO he genuinely seems to enjoy a motivating challenge (while being intelligent about career choices, of course).

    BJJ sparring? I don’t think so.

    His shit eating grin suggests he’s playing touch butt.

    Why would he come back? His goal had always been to get rich and get out.

    If he returns is all downside. He risks losing his titles (for real, not by being stripped). He risks losing his reputation as one of the best fighters. He risks losing brain cells.

    Now what does he gain? Maybe another million to toss in his stack of money?

    The dude's rich now. He may have one more fight if it helps him start up as a promoter, but short of that you probably never see him fight again.

    Screenshot + Crop + Img Upload = Unnecessary use of time.

    I, nor TS, should have to go through all that hassle to post an instagram photo :confused:.
