    Conor May Never Fight Again...

    Just saw pretty candid interview with Dana, I think it was on MMA Junkie, where he made the point I'm sure many of us have had in the back of our minds, that a guy who just banked $100 million may never grace the octagon again. He said McGregor continues to say he will fight again, and that they were working on a fight for the end of the year, but Conor "wasn't ready".

    Funny to me, White responded to a question about Tony Ferguson saying Conor should defend or vacate, which is true, just a question of when, by saying how Ferguson is not a voice he's interested in hearing anything from. I guess when you're talking the biggest cash cow in the history of the sport, which Conor likely is at this point, Tony Ferguson does not have any kind of leverage in that discussion and White dismissed him as such, but in real fighting terms, I believe Ferguson speaks the truth. McGregor KO'd the 155 champ, and he's the undisputed king at lightweight, but unless and until he defends, the whole division is at a standstill...

    Worth watching if you haven't seen it, as Dana takes some direct questions about his biggest star, and I thought he was shooting pretty straight from the hip on this one.

    Pretty sad when Dana completely dismisses anything his REAL LW champion has to say......speaks volumes to where the UFC is at today
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Dana saying this seems to me to be him trying to get a reaction from Conor, he's trying to speed up his return to the cage. Problem is, Conor won't be forced by anyone, he'll do what he wants, when he wants.

    Anyone else seen the rumours of Floyd/Conor 2? Hopefully bullshit, but seems possible to me.......and I hate it.

    IF he fights....let's face it, it probably won't be until July that he fights again in the UFC......if that even.

    He'll fight, but only when he wants.......likely July will be the best time, works best to maximise PPV sales in July usually.
