    Have a hard time really considering Kahbib vs Iaquinta a championship fight. The champs couldnt fight so Kahbib got a Participation Belt for competeing vs a lesser opponent. The whole thing is stupid.
    Everything else about your post makes sense to me.

    Exactly, Conor accepts short notice fights without problems, just like Khabib. Wrestlers, boxers and kickboxers. That's commendable.

    2 years ago 3 years ago 3 years ago. Conor is irrelevant today as an MMA fighter.

    He fought the highest rankes guy available. A guy in a 4 fight win streak and beat him 50-43.

    #11 is not the champ. Kahbib was given a "Title" after beating the #11 ranked fighter.

    Similar to Connors first belt, champion couldn't fight so they set up a last minute substitute

    Look, Conors antics and inactivity are fucking annoying, but don't let that cloud your judgement and ignore actual facts.

    He got a title shot at 155 due to being a champion in another division and stepping up. He already had the shot at RDA.

    The WW fight against Diaz was a stop gap fight to save the card, It had nothing to do with his shot at the LW title.

    Hey, look, another thread about Conor's past achievements that has nothing to do with him signing a fight!

    Tony caught a number 8 ranked fighter to get his belt.

    I dont know why anyone is a fan of Khabib. He barely fights because he's always injured when he does sign he rarely shows up because he barely makes weight and when he does show up he wrestlefucks to a decision. He just decisioned #11 because he gassed and couldn't get his wrestlefuck TD decision.

    Context is everything.

    Fighting outside of the UFC is basically a training ground.

    Take their records in the UFC & they have the same amount of fights, but Conor f*cked up one more time than Khabib. You can't really hold that against him though, because Conor's competition was WAY WAY higher than Khabib's... so there's a lot more opportunity for him to f*ck up.

    Khabib goes around cancelling fights when he's injured, while Conor rocks up & fights anyway. He fought Mendez with a torn ACL... lol... no way in hell Khabib would've done that.

    Anyway... the point is that you can't hold Conor's one UFC loss against him too much when he's been in there with higher level competition & taking a lot more chances than Khabib.

    What part did you have a problem with?

    The fight against RDA was already signed, then RDA pulled out due to injury.

    So, yeah, he did not get a title shot because of the Diaz fights as you stated, he was already offered, and had already signed on for a LW title fight before the Diaz fights.

    I mean really, how hard is that to understand.
