    I think he should look at moving to 155 instead.

    I’d like to see him stick around for a few more KO losses before hanging em up.

    Go to 155 and get a good “doctor”.

    All fighters should retire after a loss.

    Yes, he'll never be more than a punchline in McGregor's career. It's better to be a joke without CTE than a joke with CTE.

    Maybe if rematched Conrad when he had the chance, he wouldn't be a comedy act.

    He signed a long contract so he probably sticks around for a little while

    Can't see him losing tonight but even if he does he should stick around outside a brutal KO.

    Everyone should retire when they lose. If they can't all go undefeated, what's the point?

    Aldo is a Bantamweight and Conor is a Welterweight.

    I don't think so. He is still top tier and only 33 y/o

    If he wants to be champ then yes hang em up
    If he just wants to make money keep going, move to 155. He’d fit in well if he started a new “strength and conditioning” program like so many fighters.

    He's 33 but he has been fighting as a pro for over 15 years. 33 fights, that's a lot of mileage.

    He is 3-4 in his last 7. He's only lost to top guys but if he can afford it, he should quit before he accumlates any more damage.

    If he gets brutally knocked out he should at least consider it

    Depends if he gets annihilated or loses a close fight.
