    Maybe they made a mistake with the date, usually they put guys from TUF on the TUF card.

    ufc doesn't have to do anything they have conor name on a contract he was happy to have signedso ifconor is retired than so be it.

    would shock me if conor take home money from the Floyd fight was close to the money he made fighting at ufc 205.

    the Floyd pay day he had to pay the ufc, his agant, his gym, his training partners and most of all taxes./

    face it conor is retired.

    He isn’t retired and Dana needs him back for ratings.....putting in his boys all the time makes the dude happy. Do you understand how business works dude ?

    so being the highest paid fighter on his current contract what is stopping conor. that right it cause he ducking losing.

    if and I say a HUGE if he comes back it be at 170 cause he wants nothing to do with max, tony, dustin and khabib.

    conor fans will go nuts him trying to be champ champ champ but the ufc made it clear that belts are worthless now.

    dana the one time he not lied said the ufc is bigger than 1 person.

    the media said when tito left the ufc was over, when chuck left same than it was when randy left, than when ronda left, than when brock left. the ufc isn't going any where.

    it must be so hard making 15-30 mill a fight after all.

    WTF are you rambling about? I hate Conor. I am just saying Dana always caters to his biggest star, who happens to be Conor.

    I get it just fine. conor is the reason he not and wont fight again.

    I think it cause he worried about losing and it better to walk away doing what it did than fight khabib or tony who crush conor.

    Give me 9 figures and world class ability in the octagon and ofcourse youth and you wouldn't see me displaying any of those skills as I would be investing in much more lucrative ventures than MMA.

    Good fight. I was impressed by Pena on the show and Cormier seems to rate Smullen very highly, he was the first pick overall at lightweight.

    Not sure how this turned into McGregor thread, but the McGregor obsessives will jump on anything.

    Or it could be that DC, Stipe, the entire coaching staff of both teams, and all the other fighters on TUF have stated that he is a serious beast.

    Btw. Guy is 3:0 (against cans) a bit weird that someone with such a record get's another chance at the UFC.
    Especially with him not fighting at TUF.

    That legitimately doesn’t mean anything. They can say he’s the next Anderson Silva, it doesn’t mean much,

    DC & Stipe recognising him as the best 155lb fighter on the show obviously means something.
