Why would Khabib give an enemy he ran though an unjustified rematch?

    Conor doesn't seem so interested in the rematch anymore and said he wasn't ready yet after the fight or something to that effect. maybe he wised up, but let's assume he is in the future again.

    Like Khabib, I wouldn't mind seeing it from a sporting perspective if Conor earned it against elite fighters
    but:

    Conor never gave any rematches he promised
    Khabib ran through Conor it wasn't even close
    Khabib is already incalculably rich
    Conor insulted Khabib, his family and his people, why would he give Conor his way?

    Why not let Conor beg like a bitter ex forever knowing they're enemies and he wants it so bad?
    Conor is the one who has to live with it forever and hasn't earned it.

    Khabib's conscience is as clean as his perfect record.

    Dana just said he was worth 50 million dollars

    That's like 500 million in Dagestan. More than enough for 50 lifetimes.

    Conor expects rematches when he loses but will never give anyone a rematch.

    Dana and his fans support that kind of thinking so it works for him. If a fighter is not interested then they are deemed to be scared and ducking. That is nothing more than name calling to try and bait a fighter into accepting the rematch.

    Beat Gaethje, Kevin Lee, Tony Ferguson or fucking Islam.... One of them and you can somehow justify a rematch against khabib. Hell, even Nate at this fucking point. Just fucking fight at 155 and stop trying to always have an already prepared excuse in case he fucking loses.

    Not sure when fighters started thinking they were the match makers but it’s fucking stupid. Not saying that Conor isn’t given favoritism but if my employer told me to do something and I thought nah, I’ll do this instead I’d be canned.

    Ferguson is gonna win anyway so it won’t make any difference whether he wants to fight Conor or not.

    I'm guessing by contract Khabib discloses guest appearance and endorsement earnings to the UFC and that's how Dana knows

    Fighters are allowed to refuse fights if they want.

    UFC couldn't even get demetrious to fight TJ and Khabib has infinitely more clout. Khabib has been making Conor beg for a year and half now and Conor still hasn't got his rematch.

    Hell they even gave into Khabib's demands and let Zubaira back in the UFC after he blindsided Conor after the fight.

    The way Dana’s talking I dont think Khabib is going to get much say in it. They’ll throw cash at him until he agrees

    According to Uncle Fester the fighters are independent contractors. While he might "make" the fight, that doesn't mean Khabib will take it. In fact he said he wouldn't and I believe he'll stick to it.
