Remember he got pulled from UFC 200? Conor needed more time to train and he knew that. Now i think he realized the risk is too big and the reward is not there. A bad TKO or sub loss would destroy his dreams of a Mayweather rematch. Khabib needs Conor. Conor does NOT need Khabib. Khabib if he wins is taking everything Conor's worked for. Conor is a smart businessman, This is a brilliant excuse without losing face! Because UFC will pull him! Tony will step in to save the card! The card will still do MASSIVE PPV numbers!
