    Lol.


    Hes a fight promoter. Even if he wanted to fire conor he couldnt.
    Wme would not have it. His job is to sell fights,and despite conor being an impossible child,its his job to grease you noobs into accepting that conor will keep fighting. He is just doing his job.

    Was just thinking these exact thoughts today... so funny how Dana has slowly changed his stance on the whole thing! especially now that there are a few more PPV to sell

    He was never going anywhere. This is just the 2018 version of the Monster throwing event. We are now in the WWE era of MMA. Wake tf up.

    The fact Conor was even at the event in person should tell you all you need to know as far as how this will pan out.


    Remember what he did to Ariel when Dana found out he leaked something? Thats right....

    The thing is, he serves as ombudsman for the company.

    His word carries no value whatsoever to longtime fans of the sport, and if that bleeds into the general public, it will damage his ability to do his job.

    In theory.

    Because people are stupid.

    Simple, they know how stupid fans are and this was the planned progression of things.

    Also, now Conor knows his next opponent. Wonder what Tony got paid for this Soap Opera?

    If he gets a ban it'd be by the NYSAC.

    With the UFC, if they keep him will he make them more money than if they cut him? They're a business and it's a simple business decision.
    Unless all of the UFC's sponsors and tv carriers insist he's fired then of course he won't be.

    If they put him on a PPV it'll do the biggest numbers of the year.

    I just watched it. He looks very concerned. I did not know there were 20 misdemeanors and 2 felony charges.

    Paris Hilton has a mugshot. Where is Conor’s? You don’t post bail without being arrested and arrest records are public.

    Yeah. We all know that's coming. There must have been so many face palms when Khabib called out GSP and ruined the hype.

    When Conor calls Dana a cunt and says the cunt won't strip him of the UFC belt, I don't see the mutual respect... unless Dana also refers to Conor as cunt.
