I don't blame him, most likely isn't in top shape and Frankie's not a draw. Frankie is a wrestler and I doubt he's focused much on TDD the past year.

No. Conor didn't turn it down the UFC turned Conor down.

if it was gonna be at 145 i'd favor frankie in that.. and conor would have a hell of a weight cut in what like a week and a half?

conor could have asked when holloway was first announced out that would have given conor alot more time to cut 

 

i think conor said the ufc said no because they wouldnt make as much money on a short notice fight for him

Well IMO... when you ask for something and they say no, you were turned down. Frankie had no idea apparently. Conor was the only one who was turned down for the fight and it was by the UFC, so he says. I may of messed up on the way my phone notified me about his post, but I am right about this one damnit! ;)

Ok it’s 5am in Thailand and I am sparring in 6 hours, so I will check back after. Curious to see where this goes and if he is trolling us or really crazy enough to get back in there and risk a fight. Thanks for the support guys, the channel is growing fast and I appreciate it! ;)

Means they don’t have enough time to plug this in the mainstream to sell it. 

Hardcores mean NOTHING. 

Ngannou was pushed as Black Panther to appeal to casuals and his face is on Body Armor drinks locally by me. 

A McGregor fight needs press conferences now on the scale of UFC 100. 

Not enough time.

Yeah you need at least a couple months and a press conference or two to generate headlines and buzz and let people make plans and buy tickets, rent hotel rooms etc.

 

Plus when Conor fights ticket prices increase. Wouldnt be good business to put him in a card where tickets have already been sold at a way lower rate.

Conor would knock Frankie out. He gets  rocked easily, I understand why Frankie rejected this fight in the past, and most likely would have turned it down again.

There is not one fighter at 145/155 who wants to fight Conor, they know there is a high probability Conor KOs them. But they want the payday, and are willing to get KOed in exchange.

Yeah I really believe a guy who hasn't fought in 15 months, and has said multiple times the cut to 145 is too hard to do anymore was willing to step in on short notice for a non title fight at 145  pounds. Fake news.

He's running scared to lower weight classes now.  Pathetic.

. Fucking coward should have been the one defending against either Tony or Khabib, but instead he ducked both.

None title fight?

Conor is the champ at 145. Max holds an empty belt, the fighters want Conor, not Max. 

Well some want Conor and the payday that comes with it. Others like Aldo and Frankie probably don’t want the risk of being KO’ed as they’ve already turned him down.
