This has to kill any chance of partnership... right?

    It’s not going to happen, but greed has made people do stupider things.

    Rey didnt have a contract with the UFC. They'd never let him go anywhere else.

    The americans have a president that literally says and does anything he wants, damn the consequences. Partnering with McGregor is tame by comparison.

    If he fights, he'll fight with a "partnership stake" in the event. It really couldn't happen any other way now.

    But he was never going to be GIVEN a stake in the company. If Conor wants that he has to buy it, just like everyone else.

    Conor is an actor... nothing more. He does whatever he needs to do to hype up his status.

    Conor’s next fight might be against Lee Murray for the international prison championships if he keeps this shit up

    Don't worry about length, I qouted your two actual points:

    This is incorrect. Dana stated, that the biggest profit of 2017 was May-Mac. Yes, that was UFC profit even though Conor did not fight MMA.
    WME IMG need the huge buy to pay off. They need Conor and his profts. Badly.

    The keyword is "fake".
    They announced it (did they already, actually?) just to use the first excuse for why the negotiations went south.

    If you would have actually read my whole post, it would have made sense.

    The fact that UFC faked an illusion that they pulled him from a card shows that they arent even willing to negotiate with him as a fighter right now, nevermind being partners.

    No, it does not show that. Were they not willing to negotiate, like you imply, they would've said it publicly. It would've made them look good and strong-willed.

    I think for this to work conor needs to come back and win. Until he does I doubt May is willing. Conor needs that aura back.
