    Anyone responding to that with the Mcgregor situation is simply a dumdum

    Even bisping isn't a very good counter argument.

    But whatever it's sherdog

    The difference is the UFC doesn't really want them to fight the top competitors. They want the money from the Bisping vs GSP and Conor vs Floyd fights.

    McGregor I understand. He's a special exception.

    Why isn't Bisping a good argument? I was ok with the Dan revenge fight. It's Dan Henderson FFS in his retirement fight. I even understand the GSP fight. What I don't like is after the UFC deemed it to long to wait for GSP they wanted to set up Bisping vs Romero then all the sudden we hear my knee recovery is going slow I can't fight Romero. Now we have Whittaker vs Romero for an interim title.

    There was no knee recovery story when he was demanding the fight happens in July or he'd skip (nice bluff Mike) over GSP.

    Except MM isn't ducking the top contender in his division. He's refusing to fight a guy that has never fought in his division over a guy in his division who he was told he had to fight until TJ whined for a title shot because Cody is out.

    In fairness, Conor first won a belt in December 2015. That was 18 months ago and he still has zero title defenses.

    No pretending you are taking paternity leave while out jet setting is not defending a belt.

    MMA brings us together, the internet tears us apar
    Conor is the biggest mma fraud second only to Ronda. Dude has 2 high level fights, one against a guy 3 times smaller, the other against a small lw who was prime to be beaten.

    Strip Conor. Cowardice should not be rewarded.

    Not really. In no way can Dillashaw be considered a top contender in the flyweight division. He is unranked as a flyweight and never fought at flyweight. He isn't even the champ or number 1 ranked contender in his division.
