    Great idea for a whole new thread mate. You couldn't find any other McGregor VS Khabib thread to post this bullshit of a comment in?

    My guess is he's been waiting to see how desperate UFC gets and would return at peak desperation when he thinks he has maximum leverage

    Not sure about that. He'll probably go broke in 5 years time.

    Because why not make another ~10-15 million? I always doubted he would, but it sounds like it's gonna happen. Maybe he has some inside info that Khabib is injured or something so they will fast track the fight to make sure he doesn't have to fight him 100% lol.

    I'm actually surprised, and won't believe it until it happens though.

    Because he'll make millions of dollars.

    There are plenty of athletes, celebrities, wealthy people people that are "set for life" but still work. Why does Jeff Bezos still work? Money and passion still motivate people.

    Yeah, make no mistake Conor is making an ungodly amount of money to fight Khabib.

    I guess the question of "how much is enough" only applies to people without his apparent tolerance for coke.

    what do you get out of thinking this way? are you so jaded you need to insert your own fiction into peoples mindsets to make it more appealing? if thats you in your profile, you look 50. its sad to see people hate on stuff like this because their own miserable lives are so unfullfilled they need to vicariously shit on others who are doing great. these are profesionnal fighters and athletes, you look like you eat donuts as a hobby. maybe if you got off welfare you wouldnt have all this spare time on your hands.

    Because of Conor other guys in the GOAT race have stepped it up. He knows he needs to do more now that GSP and DC have done what they did.

    Because he is a competitor. Because the fire is still inside him to prove something. Because he is still young and Misses the fight game. Pick one.

    And he also only has one loss in the UFC. He also won 2 championship belts in the UFC. I’d say he’s pretty good.
