Default I am getting the feeling that Conor will never fight again...

He has been inactive as a fighter for one year now and has not won a fight in 3 years now... He has a lot of personal problems going on in his life and most of all he does not need to fight financially. I think he got a taste of that big boxing money from the Floyd fight and lost all hunger and motivation to compete. I just don't think he has anything left in him for it and I don't blame him. Can't say he left that much in terms of a legacy imo but did make pretty good cash for mma standards (not boxing standards Mayweather, Pacquiao, Canelo, De la hoya etc.)

What do you think?

The man went from being on public assistance to earn (after taxes and all that) at least $100m over the course of less than 6 years.

Enough money to take care of him for the rest of his life, his son's life, and likely the children of his son, as is.

Why would that man ever come back to have a regular fight?

GSP, Nate Diaz 3, another boxing match with Floyd, and maybe a couple others; outside of that, it doesn't make sense

I wasnt sure for awhile myself, but I think its about 80% he fights again now. I dont suspect he has many fights left, but I think he fights again if it only is once or twice more.

I think we'll definitely see Conor fight again.

His heart might not be in it anymore, but I'm sure he wants and eventually he'll need another couple more paydays. He blows through money fast like Floyd.

He isn't budgeting his money and driving a Prius like Cormier.

Who would he even fight? I'm no MMA expert but Khabib wiped the floor with him and showed he's not at the level anymore. Diaz III is the only fight I can think of where he stands a chance and it would sell big.

I never expected him to take the Khabib fight. He still has some unpredictable moves in him, I doubt he never fights again.

He could easily come back, avenge his loss to Nurmagomedov, and hold down the title for years to come. Even win another Superfight or two.

Could.


The thing is, he probably shouldn't. It would be nice for him to retire on a win, and sure-up his legacy. But the risk is high. In MMA if you're off by an inch, you're off by lightyears.

He should just focus on his personal life and developing MMA in Ireland and Europe. He really was one of the absolute greats, up there w/ Penn, St. Pierre, Edgar, Fedor, Aldo, but highest-level competition is sooo demanding. Even when you're winning you're doing severe damage to your body, and sacrificing your personal life.
