    Saul "Canelo" Alvarez vs. CM "right uppercut from hell" Punk
    Lomachenko vs. Ronda Rousey
    Antony Joshua vs. Francis "Mike Tyson" Ngannou

    He doesn't need to get out of any contract. WME will sign off on this for sure. They are about the dollar o178-hooksnly. Dana might wanna shoot it down on some powertrip shit because his ego has him believing he has the same pull he had under the Fertittas, but his opinion is below WME & Conor both. And that's just facts

    :rolleyes:

    The UFC will eventually strip him or make it look like he vacate it, they can't go on like this forever. It's making them look like amateurs.

    Conor has improved a lot and has gained valuable experience in his debut fight, while Floyd has only gotten older and weaker. Second fight would be much closer and even more interesting.

    Isn't that exactly what they said last time? "Good luck getting out of that UFC contract".

    He wouldn't be getting out of his UFC contract, He'd make a deal with the UFC, just like last time.


    I don't think this is true anyway. He'll fight in the UFC next. He's just presenting MayMac 2 as an option to show he has possibilities. Negotiation.

    Probably could have last time also, Floyd probably didn't want people to feel fucked over on spending 100 bucks on that.

    You had to be a complete idiot to buy into the first fight. It would not surprise me whatsoever is Connor's dumbass fans paid just as much money to see a second fight.

    I doubt they care how they look like in the eyes of the public, as long as he public buys.

    lol, McGregor doesn't know how to fight on the inside. He is the one in danger at that range.

    It's simple, Conor is not bigger than the sport. He'll most likely retire soon. UFC has a life after Conor, it continues and needs credibility and respect to make money. They worked and continue to work hard to legitimate the sport and make the public respect it for that reason. So their champion can't keep fighting in another sport, a rival sport for that matter. Specially when he still has competition in his own weight class. That looks bad! It's stupid. They can make money with Conor without that happening. And Conor will sell whatever the fuck he decides to do so he doesn't need the UFC belt for that.

    Why won't they? That saved their 2017 and 2018 promises to be even worse.
    Of course they will

    Credibility? Legitimating sport? Respect? PUBLIC respect?
    They are not interested in either of those, and never were. Neither of those makes them any profit.
