    That's right folks. Money runs the UFC and Conor is the cashcow. With just one win, RDA will get a title shot at WW as it will be in Conor's interest if he wins. If RDA beats Woodley, Conor comes back for a WW title shot. In the meantime, Conor will continue to sit back and watch. Watch as it plays out.

    Not because he is the second best welterweight on the roster?

    RDA made Conors career.

    If RDA wouldn't have got injured he'd have beaten Conor. Instead Conor gets the 2 Diaz fights and a load of hype, Eddie gets the title while Conor is pissing about with Nate and then Conor gets the LW title, fools think he has a shot against Mayweather and pay a stupid amount of money to watch that 'fight'.

    Conor should give some of his money to RDA to say thanks and he certainly shouldn't fight him, if RDA beats Woodley.

    Maybe Rda wins but maybe not. It's not like Conor hand picked eddie or Nate it's just that rda pull out then lost and Conor moved on.

    Nope, its about the money. We have seen plenty of #1 or #2 guys who were on a good streak that never got their shot (Khabib, Ferguson, Jacare, Romero, Tony Ferguson, Mark Hunt... list goes on and on. A lot of these top contenders rack up a good winstreak against very good opponents, easily deserving of a title shot. But they don't get it. They either get derailed waiting or taking the next opponent or are still waiting. Meanwhile, there are guys who will get a title shot after one win because it fits the agenda. The agenda being maximizing profits for the UFC.

    Did you know Khabib is on a 24 fight win streak, he'll never get a title shot against Conor.

    Yeah but how many top contenders has he beaten? He just had a title fight and backed out due to weight cutting issues it's not like the UFC is preventing him from getting the title.

    I thought it was because he just won the fight that Dana said was for number 1 contender and a title shot.

    They didn't get there shot, they got the matchmaking derailment. Jacare deserved a title shot. IMHO, the champion at the time Weidman, should have been the one to have to stop Jacare. Instead, the UFC throws him in there with Romero and Romero Stops Jacare. & instead of Romero getting his Shot. Whittaker stopped Jacare. Styles make fights, because of this, Matchmaking determines the champion in MMA it can also halt a contender. If they (UFC) gets a top contender on a streak who they don't want as champion because they don't $$$, they look for a bad matchup.

    Honestly Robert Whittaker shouldn't even be fighting for the belt. They should have just given it to him. Why is Luke Rockhold getting the title shot off one win? Because the (UFC) believes Rockhold is marketable.

    Exactly this. Conor will never fight RDA, especially at WW.

    Contenders killing off contenders for favorable matchups for the champ. See the MW division.

    So why is Tony Ferguson still waiting for his title shot?

    Well he isn't. I am pretty sure that Wonderboy & Till would beat him.
