    For money?
    If he did not accept that fight, he would still be the NO.1 contender and wait for the title bout.

    Because he goes out of his way to do the easiest tasks in the hardest way possible and it backfired.

    Because he is a fighter.

    Unlike some leprechaun charlatans.

    1. Money
    2. To preserve his "tough guy" image

    Instead he got a life changing beating for chump change and no title shot ever again

    He's terrible at managing risk vs reward outside the octagon.

    He needed a tuneup fight to see if he still has it because he was gone forever and had aged alot. Fight more than answered these questions.
    Had he fought Conor 2.0 he would´ve been dead.

    He's old, he doesn't care about legacy like sherbro nerds, and he got paid like a UFC champ anyway.

    You will either catch shit for scheming your matchups or catch shit for taking on the next best challenge. You’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

    He was desperate for money probably, he fights once a year. He needed that money.

    Pretty much how I feel. How (much) long(er) was he just supposed to sit out?

    He will be back, may not get a shot at the belt, but I firmly believe there is still plenty of fight in Tony.

    As long as he’s content with his decision, I don’t see a problem with it. He didn’t get this far by being cautious. Tony is a madman.

    so tony is taking fights to convey the fans that he is a though guy
    ok

    maybe michael phelp kept competing to convey his fans that he knows how to swim

    Because Tony Ferguson's the type of guy to throw away a title shot to look tough.

    didn't that leprechaun fight khabib after 2 years off

    I understand not liking the dude but when people try to act like he isn't a fighter or he's scared to fight people, I cringe a little bit

    he's made some ballsy moves throughout his career if you look closely. it's one of the main reason why Dana respects him

    He actually is

    Which is why he was retarded enough to cut weight twice in one month when he didn't have to
