    I don't want to be that guy to start a Conor/Khabib thread because I have a tendency to bash people who do, but we need to address the huge elephant in the room.

    We are less than 2 weeks away from one of the biggest events in UFC history and there has been barely no promo at all.

    Where is all the promotion?

    My conspiracy is this: everyone knows Conor is getting mauled by a bear. The more hype, the more attention, that wood alcohol with brown paint hes calling whiskey takes a hit. Better to just play it down, keep the hardcores in the loop, but let the mauling go unseen by the swill guggling masses. Just a rhought.

    So you think they spend all that money renting RCMH & streaming the video in TSQ so they could hide the fact he is fighting?

    Also if UFC thought Conor would be embarrassed, they would be trying to get as much money from this PPV as possible.

    Crazy ass post my man ;)

    Wut? Besides the presser there's been nothing, to my knowledge at least.

    I'm talking about official UFC promo, not some fan made videos. There's not much on there official Youtube channel. And most of it looks like they have been made using old footage.

    Hell, the last major event was probably UFC 217 and you had a bunch of videos some even like 20 minutes long on Bisping and GSP's return.

    Khabib is boring and Conor locking the doors behind him at SBG for not allowing Mcgregor Productions to co-promote = no footage worth spending a dime to get so the UFC-WME is saving that dime instead of throwing it away.
