    All you people who think Conor will fight Nate over Tony because he's scared are either lying or ignorant. Conor has never ducked any opponent, he's always taken bigger challenges ever since the Cage Warriors days. So stop being ignorant and lying, Conor WILL unify the belts by humiliating El Cuckuy inside two rounds and then you will eat your words.

    I agree

    Choosing to box Floyd for $100 million over fighting Khabib or Tony for $5 million is not ducking. That is the type of money that can set you up for life.

    He continuously called out Aldo who was unbeaten for 10 years.

    He also was willing to fight RDA when RDA was the LW champ and on a crazy run.

    He took a second fight with Nate. He risked losing to the same guy twice in a row but showed his improvement and got the win.

    He fought the LW champ Alvarez and KO'ed him


    Conor has never ducked anyone. He has actually shown more balls and taken more risks than most champions.

    But NOW comes the time. NOW is the moment of truth. If Conor chooses Nate over Tony then that would be considered ducking.

    Nobody wants to see him fight Nate again. Every fan, hardcore or casual, that saw 216 wants to see him fight Ferguson, the interim champ that just called him out.

    Conor must fight Ferg.

    And I think he will. It will be great

    It amazes me how ordinary people can believe the numbers offered to the media by the guys in the suits.

    Yeah I agree. Hes not a duck, and has proven to have big balls.

    Tony still beats him though imo.

    - ducked the contenders at 145, everyone was calling him out and the only reason he took the Mendes fight is because Aldo dropped out last minute.
    At 155 you could say he was very selective, he could have fought any contender there too but thought Nate would be an easier route with a better pay out.

    I'm not hating, but to say he taking the toughest fights is retarded

    First you tell us McGregor is going to beat 49-0 Floyd Mayweather, and now you tell us Conor isn't ducking anybody.

    When has he ever put any of his own belts on the line? Go ahead, I'll wait. Nate wasn't, and Eddie certainly wasn't a tougher fight for him than Frankie.

    I agree with this entirely, it's easy for people to twist it as ducking but if he'd lost any of those ie the second nate fight or the Alvarez one then that'd be it for him, he'd still be champ but that aura would have been well and truly gone.

    But he still took the Mendes fight last minute, how many other fighters have just backed out of late replacements.

    He's been ducking a lot of people lately, it just happens to not be because of fear, but because of money and keeping his brand intact.

    Conor is a price-fighter, ONE massive motivator is the money, he selected Diaz the first time because he and his mangement knows that the Diaz bros has pretty large amount of loyal fans, so even if Nate ever had headlined a ppv it was a secure bet to invite him to that spot because of his TV Numbers, followers on social media and so on. Remember that they Conor & UFC want to sell PPV's.

    When RDA pulled out from ufc196 other elite fighters where on the table too, most of them demanded much less money than what Nate did, so Conor is selective but for the most after his opponents worth in sold ppv's togheter with him.

    Everyone was calling him out so what ? If you were given an opportunity to fight the champ, wouldn't you take that fight over others ??

    As far as nate fight , nate won the fan favorite vote. Ufc made a fight whst fans wanted to see.

    Conor is not afraid to fight anyone. He begged to fight Aldo when Aldo was p4p #1. Fought Mendes last minute and he was looking prime, etc.

    Now he is a business. Now one opponent can net him 20+ mil extra fighting him vs someone else.
