    Cliffs
    Conor has been ready and willing to fight since late 2017; the UFC's refusal to meet his price has been the only roadblock. Conor has tried to step into TWO different fights since then; versus Frankie and versus Khabib. Conor has been planning to fight Khabib for at least three years. He went to Brooklyn to try and get or at least promote the Khabib fight.

    Longer cliffs
    • The reason Conor hasn't returned to the UFC is his prolonged negotiations with the UFC. He's been willing and able to return since late 2017. The UFC have been holding out, unwilling to meet his price. Conor has been in fighting shape all this time, ready to take a fight at a moment's notice. The UFC has been trying to build other stars like Cody Garbrandt, Francis Ngannou, Max Holloway, to build leverage against Conor.
    • Conor offered to step in and replace Max against Frankie at UFC 222. The UFC were unwilling to consider the idea, with Dana citing "not enough time to promote" as the reason. In reality, the UFC were still unwilling to give in to Conor's demands, hoping the winner of Ferguson/Khabib would become the legitimate LW champ to add leverage against Conor.
    • Unfortunately for the UFC, Tony got injured and was pulled from the fight. The UFC were in a bad spot in that between Khabib and whomever he fought, it'd be tough to class the winner as the legitimate champ, considering both Conor and Tony also had belts. Max Holloway was called to replace Tony Ferguson in the fight. This idea seemed sketchy, considering Max's recent injury and his weight, in relation to the short notice call. Conor made plans to fly to Brooklyn in order to step in as replacement in the likely event that one would be needed considering Max's condition and Khabib's history as a pullout merchant. At the very least, Conor would have the opportunity to appear at media day and promote his return, stacking the leverage against the UFC.
    • On the 2015 McGregor/Aldo World Tour, Conor predicted that Khabib would champ by the time Conor moved up to take the title. This was before Khabib had even sniffed a main event slot, and showed that Khabib has always been on Conor's radar; that he's always been planning to fight him.
    • As mentioned, Conor was on his way to Brooklyn, Then fight week, Khabib confronted Artem and posted the video on social media. By media day, the stage was set for Conor to appear at media day and the presser to hype the fight and gain more leverage against the UFC. Unfortunately, Conor's flight was late, and he arrived late; he was forced to adapt, but his goal remained the same: confront Khabib. Then the bus indicent occurred. Of course, Conor overestimated Khabib's honor; he pegged him as the legend that he's protrayed to be; the stereotypical cold Russian who wrestles bears for fun. Khabib proved the stereotype was just that and nothing more, by refusing any interaction with Conor, instead choosing to hide on the bus.
    • As expected, there was a pullout, as Max didn't make it to the fight. Unfortunately, Conor now had legal obligations, and was unable to step into the fight that he was preparing for. Conor was cutting weight through everything that happened in Brooklyn, further indicating his desire to fight. Had Conor gotten to Brooklyn just 15 minutes earlier, his plan woulda fallen into place. He'd have at least gotten the hype and leverage, giving the UFC the incentive to use him as Max's replacement, instead of Al Iaquinta.

    Repeatedly, through all of this, some of the less educated fans have claimed "Conor will never fight Khabib" or even "Conor is never coming back". Finally, Conor vs. Khabib will take place on October 6 at UFC 229.

    Not going to watch but we all already know Conor has balls to take on guys who are probably going to kick his ass.

    We saw the Mayweather fight and next is Khabib.

    Anyone who says Conor ducks a challenge is a hating moron.

    This part of your post is fucking stupid btw. What kind of idiot would get out a bus with 30 retards surrounding it throwing shit at it?

    You can't possibly be this stupid.

    So throwing a dolly at a buss = promotion?

    Yeah, this video is a huge reach. This guy always looks for conspiracy.

    He predicted Conor would KO mayweather (because mayweather would take a dive to promote the rematch). After the fight he implies Conor may have won if Floyd hadn't faked a low blow. Don't take the shit he says too seriously.

    Lol, I never claimed any of these things but the bus thing and the "over estimated Khabibs honor" is total bullshit. He knew as well as anyone security and UFC officials would intervene and there would be no confrontation. If he really wanted a confrentation he would have been quietly waiting on Khabibs floor of the hotel where there wasn't a bus, security gaurds and UFC officials in between them. As well as cameras to record the publisity stunt, lol.

    So in general, he's a pussy who priced himself out of fights so he didnt have to fight while still living off his platinum panty night from Floyd. Gotcha.

    There's actually been more "incoming blah blah blah storm" posts like yours than anything negative about McNuggets. Get off the dick man, you look ridiculous

    "Conor overestimated Khabib's honor"

    Fucking lol. Coming from a guy who recruited his own militia to go after one guy.

    It's hilarious that people talk about Khabib's "lack of bravery" here.

    At least this fight is finally happening now. It's been way too long.

    Oh, you'd be surprised at the length the McBallGarglers go to, to say EVERY opponent of his is completely "shook."

    There were COUNTLESS threads here before the Floyd raping, saying "49-1", and "Head Clean Off."

    Ugh, you almost had a chance to respond with something witty and clever, yet again, your petty insults disappoint. You'll get there one day young fella

    You're talking to a guy whose main focus and interest as an mma fan is how much money the ufc makes.
