    Interesting how so many of Conor's recent fights he was the "challenger":
    UFC 229: Khabib vs
    The Money Fight: Mayweather vs
    UFC 205: Alvarez vs
    UFC 202: Diaz vs
    UFC 194: Aldo vs
    UFC 189: Mendes vs

    Of his last 7 fights, only UFC 196 was billed McGregor vs.

    You think is number 1 coincidence?

    That's what happens when you get what you want and don't risk anything.

    He's a MILLION times better of a challenger than he is a champion.

    There are people, in fighting sports, who are superstitious about the colour of corner/gloves.

    That's all, just wanted to add this fun fact. Someone, please say something.

    Don't risk anything? He is fighting Khabib! There isn't a bigger risk in his weight class in mma...

    Point being he no longer has a belt to put at risk. He's fighting to win someone else's belt.

    I bet you would be happy to do a coin toss with me for my car. Somehow I doubt you'd be so inclined to do a coin toss with me for your car, though.

    Bah. He is still staking a large chunk of his reputation and risking his physical health against an awesome fighter. That is a bigger risk than most people ever take in their lives.

    Hell even fighting Mendes was a risk at the time. Habib is a million times worse.

    Conor is the anti-GSP for taking this fight.

    It’s the polar opposite of Mr. Play-it-Safe.

    It's always amusing to see Sherdorks try to give the most successful fighter in UFC history career advice.

    My memory isn't what it used to be, Why was 189 Mendes vs? Wasn't Mcgregor supposed to fight Aldo, and Aldo pulled out so Mendes took the fight on short notice and UFC made it for interim belt?

    And if he loses how much you want to bet that McGregor will cite ring rust?
