    Instead he should just waltz on in there, collect another head and retire. He should implement a media blackout and say not a single word. He doesn't need to, he's already wealthy and this fight will sell regardless.

    Show Khabib the ultimate disrespect by not even trash talking him. With 100m in the bank he doesn't need to resurrect his fight selling persona, he should use this opportunity to develop a new silent assassin aura. Saying absolutely nothing will be more effective than saying less than what he used to.

    Let the UFC, Khabib and the undercard worry about their pay checks and do the promotion. Like De Niro and Nicholson not needing to promote their work, that shit is now beneath Conor.

    Takes away one of his biggest advantages......getting in fighter's heads.

    He did it with Aldo and Poirier especially.

    Here's a thing about a rich people. Once they taste the 7, 8, and 9 figures, they want more and will do anything to get more because the only reason why they became rich is because they were never complacent. For a guy like Conor, he came from nothing so he knows the value of working hard so don't expect him to not work up the hype.

    Maybe he's not talking shit because it'll look worse when Khabib smashes him

    You're just scared to death of conman talking shit one month straight and then looking silly when Khabib strangles him in the 1st.

    Only Honda can sell a fight without saying a word.

    Conor has yet to reach that level of trigger.

    He doesnt have 100 million in the bank, have you heard of taxes? Do you think his trainers and ido work for free? When he throws dollies through windows does he go to a lawyer charity for representation?

    Ive seen his spreadsheets and he spends a million a week on lifts for his shoes

    I don't think Conor can hold back but in this case, him not trash talking might really throw Khabib off and get in his head better than if he was just calling him names.

    What if he talks zero shit and knocks him spark out in the first round? Sherdog on suicide watch.

    Either a clean Conor KO, or Khabib is going to ragdoll him for 5 rounds. Is there any other probable outcome?

    More or less promotion on Conor's part isn't going make a bit of fucking difference in the way Khabib thinks. Khabib wants to fight, not talk.

    Part of his pay check is based on how many ppvs he sells dude. I’m sure he can pull in more by getting some interest drummed up
