    Conor lost to Nate Diaz and wanted to fight him again. He wants floyd again who knocked him out. He wants khabib who beat him.

    Its a common trait that he shares with GSP, Anderson Silva and Muhammad Ali.

    Willing to try And correct your losses. It's the ultamite sign of bravery and what makes an atg imo.

    Its a trait that people can't take away from Conor. They know it's true and it rubs them the wrong way

    Lol of course fighters wanna fight someone that beat them.

    It's a different story when you were the winner and your opponent wants the rematch.

    Yeah, him wanting the Khabib rematch is not something to hate on. Everybody wants a title shot when they're not the champ.

    You can rightfully hate on the UFC for bending to his everyone whim though. But also can't really blame them, they have to follow the $$$.

    Yeah because Conor is the first fighter ever to rematch a guy that beat him previously.

    It happens all the damn time you Muppet..

    It's not special just because Connie does it..

    Diaz got a rematch and a HUGE payday. None of the others deserved a rematch because Conor obliterated them quickly except for MAX. By the time MAX was champ, Conor moved up in weight.

    He has that raw mongrel passion to do better, improve and beat those who bested him in a match.

    yes TS it is to be admired. Especially when he has a lot more to lose than others
