    That's cute, but I think you know that's not a real thing at this point.

    Who is the next Connor star? Are they even fighting yet?

    How much does Connor make for his next fight? I just want to see him fight.

    He is nowhere near the most skilled or impressive fighter in any combat sport. He made a lot of money off of marketing and knocking out Aldo. He can fuck off into the sunset at this point. His exhibition against Floyd was a farce.

    A year ago today, Conor beat Eddie to win the LW belt.

    Which means it will be over a year since the LW belt has been in play.

    UFC should implement a '1 year' clause, a champ must defend their belt at minimum once per year or it gets stripped.

    I called it. Hell, Conor is a better promoter than Dana is. To the people who hate Conor: Get used to him, he's going to be the Don King of MMA.

    His power, accuracy, and timing are impressive. And he can get it done with punches and kicks.

    How much longer before he goes bankrupt? Should we get a forum pool going?

    What’s crazy is that it’s been a year and he hasn’t been injured at all.

    Been saying this for years. if the champ refuses any challenger that's #1 or #2 contender he should be stripped. if he's uninjured and doesn't defend within a year he's stripped.

    but it's never been about the title, it's always been $. so none of that matters.

    He did the same thing with the Featherweight title. Won the title, fought Diaz twice, and they finally stripped him exactly 11 months later after not defending it. But only because he won another title.

    lets not forget what the COO and Senior VP of the UFC 'Lawrence Epstein' told congress.

    "The belt is not a title it is an award bestowed on the best fighter that night"

    puts it all in perspective eh?

    Can't blame the fighters for going after the money fights,

    Most get paid in pennies.

    nope you certainly can't. the UFC introduced the 'tail wagging the dog' atmosphere, now they have to live with it.

    and I don't blame the fighters one bit.

    but the fact that the ufc has discredited it's own title has closed that chapter completely

    it shocked me, but it's not even a debate now

    It is a debate they lost (or are losing), in congressional hearings, it seems.
