    There it is. Unsubstantiated speculation at this point, but it will be good grist for the rumor mill.

    Malignaggi, of course, helped Conor train for the Mayweather fight, but then video emerged of Conor flooring Malignaggi and they publicly disputed whether McGregor had truly gotten the better of the sparring session since it was such a brief clip.

    Hate to say it but if this is true Conor is done in MMA

    He will go down as the PPV goat but one of the worst Champs ever

    Khalabeeb took his soul...

    I didn't think he would ever be serious about it when he got paid for the Floyd fight

    He gave it a shot but Khabib broke him in a serious way...maybe a super fight here or there

    Do you not remember when the UFC revamped how they count PPV sales and bumped Conor into the top spot?

    UFC 100 was in the top spot, then Conor fought Nate. That coincided with the UFC "adjusting" how they calculate buy rates. Coincidentally, UFC 100's buy rate dropped significantly and Conor/Nate pulled ahead by like 8 buys. It was laughable.

    this is the fight to make. it makes sense to milk conor as a circus item now. much better than him facing a #2 contender and getting pwned

    Malignaggi says it ain't so...

    “Not true,” Malignaggi told Express Sport of these rumors. “But of course, Conor is the king of bulls**t so I would not be surprised if this Conor having his team put out rumours just to keep his name in the headlines.”

    “Yesterday [Tuesday], Tenshin Nasukawa shut him down by telling him he needs to make 58 kilos for a fight,” Malignaggi said. “Now suddenly, the next day, he is [in] another headline negotiating?”

    Not GOAT, but a real champ champ in my opinion. He ko’d two legit champs to earn those belts. Lots of other shot can be said about matchups, shit talking, etc, but he took out two legends to get the belts.

    I don't think he want to fight anybody his own size anymore

    He Beat Max and Dustin...I think both those guys beat him in rematch...those are the only guys his own size he ever beat in his whole career it seems

    He is only calling out smaller guys...pretty lame move
