I think he just threw that dolly in the heat of the moment, not realizing the damage it would do. Don't think Conor wanted to piss away millions which he will have to pay out in those lawsuits.And yes if he does fight Khabib, that fight could very well break all UFC PPV records, especially if Khabib still has the belt and is still undefeated going into that fight.
Conor is either a fucking idiot or a fucking genius. I'm still having a hard time trying to wrap my head around why he acted this way. Risky and dumb IMO is my current stance. I can't say what's going to happen in the future with the legal side (most are predicting nothing willl happen), but if everything works out, and he ends up fighting Khabib there is the possibility of mucho dinero for both and credit to Conor for stepping up with all the hype that was built from this incident. So I guess in the end, there is that possibility of it being a wash and a setup for huge money making opportunity for the fight for all parties. But then you never know with the legal side, it can turn to shit. Either way, one thing I feel certain about, it's a blessing for Chiesa and those suing Conor to make some money.
