    He was dominated and couldn't do anything to Khabib. What's the point? What's the goal? He won't become champion unless someone were to beat Khabib. And it would take at least 2 years for him to get another title shot. So what's the point? Is he just chasing money fights now by teasing a move up to 170 and calling out Conor?

    He has done so much, but at the same time has done nothing. Every time he got close to a title shot it would never be enough.

    Everyone that loses to the champion of their division should retire.

    Cejudo wouldn't be double-champ now if he took your advice, TS.

    Dustin isn't very good. Just one of many guys who happen to get the strap. But he can fight as much as he wants, for whatever reason he wants to. Not everyone has got what it takes to be a champion, and Dustin became an interim champion, and that's better than most. I just don't think Dustin is very good. Nothing to write home about.

    I think all non champions should just retire.

    Better yet, everyone who has an L on their record should retire too.

    That's a weird philosophy.

    If you have that mentality then you're not even getting far enough to get beat up by someone on Khabibs level

    Definition of fighter....look that shit up.

    Bernard Hopkins was an idiot for continuing to box after losing his debut bout

    As long as he stays motivated and enjoys to fight he doesnt need to retire anytime soon.

    Fight for money. He was always a journeyman who had an ok run at 155. Now back to journeyman status. Conor won a round vs. khabib and Dustin could only dream of doing that.

    Conor didn't get 100% dominated, he stuffed multiple takedowns and won a round while dustin only stuffed one takedown and got dominated the entire fight.

    You can ask the same question about many fighters?

    Why the fuck is raquel pennington still fighting.. holly holm? Etc. Oh wait they fighting each other.


    I guess they feel entitled to a paycheck and are just going through the motions now.

    Conor and Dustin both got finished. Al Iaquinta took him to distance on 1 day notice.
