    I don't get it.

    What're they going to do, try to drag Conor through court?

    They can't stop shit. Worst case scenario is Conor gets a lawsuit later.

    And he'll never go back to the ufc. Fuck them.

    Because they can. They have to give the OK in order to make it happen.

    Unless the fight happens outside the US they can certainly stop him with injunctons and other legal actions. Iron clad contracts are a bitch.

    These are the types of questions people working in kindergarten have to answer all day long. Bless their souls.

    Because they have him bound to an iron clad contract (unless a really, really good lawyer finds a clever loophole.) Guys can't even work in another MMA promotion after they've "retired" from UFC if they still have fights left on their contract.

    They could sue him for breach of contract, as well as for money lost while he sat out pursuing another job while still under contract with them, as well as brand damages(esp if he loses). They could probably take him for all he is, and/or could/would be, worth.

    They can't argue he's cost them more than he'd make vs Floyd

    Sure they can. All they need to do is show the revenue they'd have made if he fought for them as per usual, and the expected losses to the brand after he diminishes the value by losing to Floyd, and at the end of the day even if they aren't asking for hundreds of millions, they don't need to. Legal expenses are fucking crazy, and all they'd need to do to eat his money up would be draw it out.

    You do realize a judge can stop him from fighting if the UFC takes it to court right? They've done it to fighters before.
