    i have always believed Conor is the product of favorable matchups, great skill, and a little bit of luck. He avoided wrestlers and when he finally fought chad it was favorable circumstances. He avoided cub and Frankie and picked Diaz over higher ranked opponents.

    That being said conor has avoided this khabib fight at all costs until the Artem incident. Conor is now pissed and wants revenge even tho he could easily fight Diaz again for a giant payday and less risk. His emotions have thrown off his usual method of picking fights and may bite him in the ass.

    Now if conor pulls this shit off (in any way) I will stop claiming he’s overrated and admit I was wrong. I will stop hating on conor. But I think he’s been avoiding wrestlers for a reason and khabib will smash

    Pretty sure he did it because Khabib has "his" title.

    If Tony was the champion instead of Khabib I bet we'd have Ferguson vs McGregor instead

    Tony had an interim title, if Conor was stripped and Tony had the "undisputed" title he would've fought him

    Nope, he has just come to take back what was, is and always will be his, the title.
    In the mean time he has simply ALLOWED the sweaty kebab turd to hold onto and shine it for him, but now the GOAT wants to have it back on his shoulder, to pose with that amazing alpha body for Insta photos etc.
    Meanwhile Kebab goes back to eating Tiramasu and missing weight for his Fight Night prelim against Artem

    Fighting Chad Mendes as a switch up opponent, on an injured knee with minimal wrestling focus during camp does not constitute favorable circumstance

    There's a reason champs choose to decline last minute opponents, remember Jones even passed on Sonnen

    Taking a fight against a high level wrestler on short notice when he was preparing for a striker is favorable? Let's just hope Khabib doesn't pull out.

    He did not. He got backed into a corner. Especially after the Nyc incident. Now he has to take his beating .He's never defended the title lmao

    Conor has fought the best. But when he wins they are no longer the best, and he ducked ABC..

    No, he likes roving himself and testing himself. He wanted Khabib before he even had the belt. It is good business when you fight an undefeated fighter. The dolly incident was all hying up the inevitable, and likely fueled by his ego. At that time, he was shredded and clearly training leading some to believe he actually was cutting weight and wanted the fight at that moment.

    Its a pointless debate since Khabib will pull out. But he wont do it gracefully, he will do it like a snivelling kebab shop owner and purposely not make weight then blame it on Conor injecting butter into his protein shake or something.

    Tbh if Khabib pulls out I'd imagine Tony would be in, and I think Tony is a far more winnable fight for McGregor.

    Even when Conor loses he'll get an instant rematch.
