This.

Plus, there's a good few decent fights for him.
Holloway
Poirer
Cowboy
Lee
Iaquinta, maybe.

He's no shortage of good fights to pick from.

Well if he refuses Conor then he should have to face Ferguson and I think he loses to Ferguson.

None of those give him the same money, and they would diminish his chances of a fight and big payday with Khabib, should he lose to any of them.

Money is his main motivating factor. Winning fights is second to that.

Ok. UFC just got interesting again.

Imagine how boring it would be if Conor retires!

I hope he won’t be forced to say “it’s only business “ again.

As expected, the "retirement" tweet was not serious:

New tweet:

I want to move forward, with my fans of all faiths and all backgrounds.
All faiths challenge us to be our best selves.
It is one world and one for all ❤️
Now see you in the Octagon.

I don't think anyone that is into MMA actually believed that tweet anyway.
When most of us read it, I imagine the first thought was "He's angling for a fight"

Yep, last time he tweeted it, I was 100% sure he was messing and just angling for a fight/more money.

This time I was 95% sure, just a small niggle that his personal issues might make him genuinely have thoughts about retirement. But there's still too much money he'd be leaving on the table for him to seriously contemplate retirement.

Anyway, it's good that he's put it to bed, but still there are plenty of numpties going on about how he's retired twice, and I'm sure it'll be mentioned countless more times.

Fact of the matter is he has actually retired 0 times and thus he's never needed to come out of retirement.

He’s like the boy who cried wolf. When he really does retire nobody will give it any credence.

Except when he does retire people will know if it's true or not.
When he announced his recent retirement no one believed it, not even the rags that printed/posted it. They were just happy to have something new from Conor to be going on about.

When he does retire, there will be a proper event with sponsorship, fanfare, bunting and jugglers.

It won't be a tweet.

This is it. But he just looks an eejit now to those who don't follow it closely.
