    Man thats a hell of a fight? If its true that he turned it down like Dana said..why?

    Waiting for a FW title shot?
    Not enough time to prepare?
    Injured?

    he wants a featherweight title shot

    Exactly, if he won it wouldn't matter because he'd have to do it again at 145.

    If he lost? Knowing Dana he'd be back of the line for a FW title shot, as asinine as that may be.

    well, the first page of google hits, as well as pretty much every thread that was made since yesterday suggest: he's injured.

    Would you happen to have a source for that?
    I love how you always forget to mention those.

    Why should he come in totally unprepared so Conor has a chance of getting another fake win like he did against Mendes then claim he was also injured without providing proof?

    Without injury there is no point besides money, money does not dictate all for everyone.
    Senseless considering he is fighting at 145 , and there is no title on the line.
