    Conor is sitting on at least $50 million after taxes.

    Why risk his legacy?

    Posting on behalf of another sherbro, Seems legit enough of a discussion to me.

    Bro, his legacy doesn't depend on his W-L ratio.

    If anything, Irish are proud that they support their fighters win or lose.
    And seems like all Conor fans have this mentality.

    His legacy will stay the same after he loses to Khabib

    I don't think he made nearly as much money against Mayweather as most people think.

    Pretty sure the UFC took at least 40% of his cut, plus he's not exactly the most frugal person in the world.

    Coz he's fighter, he really needs to be competing to keep him out of trouble, plus an extra $20-30m wont hurt.

    He’s in a new era now. Punished Conor: A man denied his belts

    I think he probably gets tons of pressure from the fans and the UFC to come back. I bet every day he gets asked about when he's coming back. GSP felt that same kind of spotlight pressure and even gave up his belt when it became too much.

    I don't think its purely financial. He misses the spotlight, the buildup, having his hand raised in front of millions of people etc
    Knocking Khabib out would be a better feeling than any amount of money could buy

    I love everything the Arm Barb posts...
    and Conors Legacy is already cemented. He's the first guy with 2 belts at once, first guy to make millions per fight, first guy to make everybody else dress like professional athletes.. First guy to make ANY haircut look cool whie beating someones ass...

    His legacy? What's that? being stripped twice, and not defending one time in his life...

    I hope he wins, then challenges the Till-Woodley winner and wins, and retires, vacating both times to be the only Double Champ-Champ, having done it twice, and three division champ.

    Khabib took Artem's virginity and Conor must defend.

    He is still young and in his prime. Why not take advantage of your ability to make as much money as you can.

    Also money isn't everything in thid world. Having a goal or a purpose like becoming champion can make your life exciting.

    Conor wants to still prove he is the best, I'm sure this is what he loves to do. So why not do what you love? And get paid for it.

    Only because Dana let him for marketability. Got the 45 stripped for not defending.
    Wrong...GSP was. Conor followed him.
    Big deal...Broc made twice as much as Conor for one fight.
    That's what MMA has come to? Haircuts? His man bun was corny as fk.

    DFW probably is “helping” him with any “legal problems” he may still have with the fighters he hurt?
    Plus a another big pile of cash winning or losing is not a bad extra incentive.

    50 million is not enough for a lifetime of mansions, luxury cars and private jets. why not earn more while he can?

    more than enough examples of guys going broke after earning 100+ million

    Why are you posting on behalf of another Shertard ?

    Do you Conor haters congregate in dark rooms, jerking each other off, all bound by your hatred towards the GOAT ?
