    But it was Conor. He should be able to do whatever he wants

    Where in the rules does it say that?

    I thought the ref needed to attend to/protect the downed fighter. Instead, Goddard joined the other official trying to remove Connor from the ring. There were 3 or 4 other people in the ring to handle this.

    Nate Conor 1 didn't make sense either. Conor Mayweather didn't make sense as well...

    Fighter safety is #1. Having a coked out retard jump into the cage isn't very safe.

    I still have no idea why Conor is targeting a ref and not potential opponents.

    If he wants to talk about leaving a legacy like Ali, he can use his spotlight to shine a light on social issues or something he is passionate about.

    I'm just completely baffled with his petty vendetta against Goddard.

    Why was Marc Goddard dealing with/being next to the winner/Conor celebrating immediately after the fight rather than being next to the losing fighter laying on the ground KTFO?

    because he's an arrogant buffoon who doesn't give a flying fuck about any social issues and is passionate about nothing but himself.

    so it makes perfect sense to go after goddard, because goddard told him to shut his piehole and sit his ass down during a previous event. shockingly, the egomaniac didn't take that well.

    Maybe I was convinced that his persona is just an act.

    Looks like he's really not that smart.

    Looks like that term became even more meaningless than it already is, which I really didn't think was possible.

    Not letting CM fight on the 219 card is not enough punishment. The UFC should pull him from 218 also, another card in which he isn't fighting on ....
    Fucking UFC taking everyone for fools.

    the fight wasnt even announced, and if they were serious about it, they'd have been hyping it up the past month like they did with 217

    UFC 'Officials'

    Unless Dana says it himself its likely bullshit

    I never said it wasn't important. You basically just changed the subject. And my point still stands:

    Yeah because title defenses are just like the only important thing in mma right lol?

    Because a moron hopped the fence and tackled a fighter before he could even call the fight and before the other officials entered the cage. It was a natural reaction, his job is to protect both fighters.

    You think picking a fight is the safer option? he should have called security.

    Conor should be punished but Goddard was at fault as well.

    If cocaine mcducker didn't jump into the cage, we wouldn't be having this discussion.
