    If Conor doesn't want to defend the 145 championship belt then he should be stripped of it immediately. He cant go running around saying he is done at 145 or talk about retiring and keep the belt. Dana should have already stripped him of the belt and stop the nonsense. Conor should either defend the belt or get it yanked from him.

    He is the UFC's special lap boy. Special treatment is all he'll get, even if it means allowing him to keep the belt without defending. Cringeworthy stuff. He ducked Frankie last summer and he's ducking him now.

    Oh look one of these threads again.
    Look, this has been discussed 100 times now.
    That belt was defended 3 months ago.
    If he doesn't defend it in another 3 to 4 months, you may start complaining again.
    Until then ...

    You don't know what youre talking about. you cant expect conor to drop an extra 10 pounds when hes been building muscle for a 55 fight. You expect way too much from life.

    Conor fought at 145 more recently than almost any other belt has been defended. It was 2 PPV's ago ffs. Take a deep breath and relax.

    Currently, yes. But there have been no mumblings for the rest of 2016 regarding a Frankie fight with Conor. Doesn't change anything. If Conor goes for the WW belt next, that will be a whole year that Frankie was denied, after earning a shot, and going into 2017, who's to say there won't be another rematch that keeps Frankie away again?

    He fought for the belt in December and you want him stripped already?

    Cain went about 18 months between fights and was never stripped.

    Well don't say he's ducking him now if he isn't available now. If Conor goes to WW they'll definitely strip him or make him relinquish, there's no point in making 145lbs if he doesn't have to.

    He can't make 145 on this short notice. Not many champs would be able to. He doesn't refuse to fight contenders at 145. The only time he isn't fighting contenders is if he's going for another title. Or maybe if there aren't many contenders he could take special fights, like Anderson Silva did agaisnt Irvin and Forrest when MW was weak

    If he defended his belt against Frankie, Frankie would have pulled out because of injury too smarty pants
