    There are plenty of athletes who make far more money than Conor and don't just retire because they're rich. That's bum-life mentality.

    Those athletes don't get punched in the head.

    Fight ww champion. If he loses, he has an excuse for being too small. Then ask for title shot with khabib.

    Beating Khabib. Without avenging that loss he won't get his mystic back.

    TS of course

    Guaranteed payday even after he loses again

    Are you that dumb OP?

    It's just whether the ufc pay Khabib enough to accept the rematch

    Retire and move somewhere hot.
    So maybe the Caribbean or if he wants to stay in Europe Cyprus or the Canary Islands.

    If he beats Cowboy then he's probably losing his next fight and it's not like he needs the money.

    Thats a lose lose. Conor ain't taking any of those fights unless he has burned thru all his money.

    Khabib rapes him again, Masvidal brutally knocks him out cold, Gaethje probably breaks his legs.

    I don’t think that he’s that type of scumbag.

    He may beat Mas but Tony isn’t beating Khabib.

    Masdival, Gaethje, or Tony if he beats Khabib are his only options.

    I think all three of them will fold him.

    I think if Khabib is ready to fight him he'll choose that, but 100% Masvidal in the most Conoresque move.

    He has so much money he should retire. Lets face it. Why risk anymore brain injury. Imagine if its a 1 in a billion chance he puts his head at an angle that connects with a punch or kick and paralyses him. One more fight wouldn't be worth it. You could argue that case in any fight but when you have millions already, its a massive incentive to quit while ahead.

    However, if I knew there wouldn't be injuries then I don't know. I would legit go for the fights fans want. I know McGregor will probably end up fighting Kabib again but am I looking forward to it? Nah, not really. If I was Connor I'd go for the fights I know wouldn't end up being a ground fight. But then again if I wanted to be regarded as the GOAT I would have to fight anyone who thinks they realistically were better than me.

    He doesn't really need the title. Lets face it, he puts in some entertaining fights and wins then he will be remembered a lot more than being a champion [if he gets one/them again] if the fights are considered slightly boring.

    I would go for the fights that I think would be mainly stand up but the fans would love. ALthough I hate boxing because of all the politics and ducking and padding up of records so you could say i would be a hypocrit for not fighting a ground fighter if they are considered the best in the weightclass.

    Swings and roundabouts.

    Depends on the goals.

    Masvidal is a win-win-win. It's a big money fight, BMF belt would be on the line and a win would set him up for a title shot at WW or LW.

    Continue to demand and expect special treatment. Convince Dana to create 165 and let me fight Frankie Edgar for the belt.
