Non fighters like Ariel will never comprehend that real true fighters love to fight regardless of fame and money. Simpletons like Ariel can't grasp that.

Did he say that he saw fear in Khabib??? That proper twelve must cause glaucoma or cataracts. I’m not sure how w man who has no fear of any man suddenly fears a man who he destroyed.

21 min in , If I go in and beat Donald in a few seconds, I want to keep fighting . Over a year has gone by and no fight any time soon . The only thing Conor is fighting is himself. We dont have to see a rematch with khabib ,He smashed the breaks off Conor . When he said If I go in and beat Donald in a few seconds it seemed like he knew something we didn't like the fix was in .

Connor spoke about patience here. With CV19, it’s been an opportunity to practice it. Seeing his tweets, has me concerned. It’s just sad, that he was getting into a happy place, now this. Hate or Love him, he brought many casuals into the UFC. Which puts more $ in all the fighters pockets. Media tends to focus on negative things, but Connor has done a lot of good too. As other fighters have. Glad The UFC got fights continuing so fighters could keep making $. Love the super cards, but worry about the newer/up & coming guys, who are just scraping by. There’s a reason, most fighters were working at various jobs just to get by. It would be great to see Khabib, and Connor get together to get the warriors together to create a union or some sort of pension plan. ( As well as JBJ, Jorge, Diaz bro’s, El Cucuy etc. ) I genuinely believe if Connor & Khabib; could get on the same side of this, others would follow. Because how polarizing they are, and make the fans. I think getting them together on the same front would be something incredible. I can’t see it happening without these 2. ( As well as others ) The baseline of 1v1. Fighting for yours. Needing to apply damage to others. But that would be one of if not the greatest thing those 2 could do. To help out less popular but skillful warriors.

he's not fighting now because he cant get big money during covid, yet he's only fighting because he loves the game.... then take a pay cut, fight because you love it and give the fans what they want, finish the season.
Stephen Charlton

coreysteady no Dana clearly said yes Conor wants a fight and he is frustrated but who do we match him up with right now, there isn't anyone at the minute! They obviously wanna wait till crowds are allowed back in as it's more revenue especially from a Conor fight but I do know Conor really wanted to fight, even Ariel brought it up and questioned why UFC wouldn't get him a fight
coreysteady 18 days ago
@Stephen Charlton it was the ufc not bending over backwards for him. He just wanted super fights and everything to go his way. Rather then fighting a lesser card which would bring less money and especially less pay per view revenue
Stephen Charlton
Stephen Charlton 18 days ago
You obviously don't know the full story, it was the UFC not giving him any fights even Dana White said it at the Ferguson vs Gaethje press conference that's why Conor got soo frustrated with them and retired, he was soo pumped up ready to go again but UFC pumped the breaks on it

Khabib said he was going to teach him how to talk good and behave. And it looks like Khabib did a great job at that. That’s why Conor is somewhat polite now, it shows how a great daddy Khabib is ☝️👌🥊😂👍

With McGregor it's just an ego thing. He knows he can never beat Nurmagomedov so why does he want a rematch? 🤔 Even with Mendes he struggled until Mendes got tired.

It seems to me that this is a publicity stunt, a long extended interview, nicely cut, camera from different angles let's buff up the shine on the armor, the knight MacGregor has entered the building. Don't want take anything away from the guy he is the superstar of UFC great fighter made a huge difference in the game, the fighters are getting paid a bit better but there is one little thing he has money fame won't admit but we all know that he powdered his nose like scarface, sad but true once a junkie always a junkie. I don't see him winning any belt in his life time anymore.
