The level of pussification around here is off the charts. Whaaa, Conor isn’t defending! Whaaa, it’s been too long since Conor fought! Whaaa, why isn’t the UFC stripping him yet?
This dude came from nothing and risen to the top of not just MMA, but has become one of (if not the) most popular athlete on the planet. He has given us several years worth of entertainment in and outside the cage. He doesn’t owe anyone anything.
He won’t be here for long and like him or not, MMA will miss him when he is gone. Why do so many people continue to find reasons to bitch at every turn? Just enjoy the ride while we still can.
You just highlighted the response to your own question dummy.

This is exactly why a lot of us are growing frustrated. He's not going to be here long, so taking a 1 to 2 year hiatus during the prime of his career while a lots of other exciting fighters are waiting in the wings for their shot, is not only denying the challengers, it's denying the fans who have supported him on the way to the top the opportunity to see how he handles himself against the top guys during those prime years.
"Just enjoy the ride while we still can"
What ride? The ride has stalled you silly cunt. You're like the carnival conductor telling the kids to shut up and enjoy the ride while it's been sitting still for 15 minutes with no sign of starting anytime soon.
