    I swear his fans think hes some god for doing that. To me it was kind of funny but felt really unessasry. The guy never said one bad thing about him and did a good job of making the fight happen and changing conors bum life.

    I really dont see why he needed to attack him. Dude didnt even do anything.

    Why was that weasel sitting on mayweather's side? He should have been neutral.

    Because the first stop on the world tour was a complete set up, and I don't buy for a second that Conor's mic mysteriously cut off when he started firing back at Floyd, also his first speech in LA was pretty sickening regarding Floyd.

    He's both. I saw mcgregor promotions on that banner. I know why because he's a weasel. He should have made sure may paid his taxes from the pacman fight.

    Hard Work! Tax Evasion!

    Are you kidding. He did everything to make conor look bad in the first press conference and was going on about how amazing mayweather was in his speach.. why was he even making a speach?? All he did was embarass himself and showtime. He should of been neutral and in the background.

    He cut his mic and lied about it. It's obvious.

    He should be tanking Conor, without him no one would have ever talked about his weasel ass. He's got some fame to along with being rich now.

    I agree. Conor could attack the Pope and his fans would go along with it. "LOLZ, he called him an old man! McGregor changed that old man's life! LOLZ"

    These dudes think Espinoza is in charge of the f*cking mics, lol.

    Because thats how boxing pressers are. The promoters speak first, i dont get why conor is so butthurt about that. Mayweather is great too so no problem with espinoza saying that.

    Cut the mic
    Fucked up his first walkout
    Didn't tell him the presser format

    He might not be personally be responsible for these things but he represents Showtime and was in the firing line

    Because the mma fans who watched the press conferences are typical casuals and think Espinoza is a part of TMT, but don't realize he is actually the one to thank for Showtime being behind this fight. Espinoza is with Showtime, not TMT, Showtime promotes Floyd's fights amongst others. Dana speaks for the UFC, not FOX, opposite of Espinoza who speaks for Showtime and not Mayweather Promotions.

    He should of been more neutral and more humble, rather than just coming accross as a mayweather nuthugger. He didnt come accross very profesionally. He was leaving himself open by his words and actions. I dont blame mcgregor at all for his actions. Conor was even bigging ellerby up. Saying he respected him. That was because ellerby acted professionally even though he worked for mayweather. Where as espinoza didnt act in a professional manner at all.

    Why was espinoza sat with TMT and not in a neutral position?

    Why did he cater to all floyds needs and not conors?

    Why did he big Floyd up so much in his speeches and not conor?

    Everyone realised that he worked for showtime not TMT that is the issue. Because he was meant to be neutral but just looked like a Floyd nuthugger.

    If he worked for Floyd you could understand the way he behaved. Its the fact that he acted like he was part of TMT was the problem.

    Conor didnt give ellerby abuse for bigging up Floyd because thats his job as part of his team. As it was Dana's job to big up conor.

    Conor was right that espinoza acted like a weasel or more like a snake.

    If he would of acted professionally instead of pandering to TMT he wouldnt of opened himself up for abuse.

    The facts you list are the exact reason he got the abuse

    It's funny how Connie fans use Mayweather's tax info as some kind of does, lol.

    Tax issue or no tax issue, Money May is still going to be filthy rich and is making a shit tons of cash, regardless!

    Why was Floyd's strength and conditioning coach standing next to Dana and Conor? It's a stage, where Espinoza sat, means nothing to non casuals. Only a casual or person who has no clue, would assume because he sat on the same side would mean he's on his team. Only "neutral position" would've been at the stand in the middle, which clearly makes no sense and has no merit for argument or discussion.

    What needs did he, Espinoza himself, cater to? Or do you mean event staff at each location? Conor was the one late to the last three press conferences, was he fined, did Espinoza say anything wrong about Conor in being unprofessional like such? Did he not make sure Conor had no mic issues the rest of the tour since Showtime was blamed for that? But people forget Floyd's mic was turned off momentarily at a later press conference when media was asking him questions.

    How did he "big up" Floyd and not Conor? He mentioned both when speaking on both and their status in each sport. If anything, he's on record as saying he was impressed with Conor, the excitement he brings with his fanbase, and admires his drive and passion.

    You say everyone realized he worked for Showtime and not TMT, yet "everyone" that is an actual fan of combat sports, already knew his role prior to these press conferences. How did he "act" like he was a part of TMT? Because he spoke on his relationship he has with Floyd over the years and said he's not familiar with Conor's personality yet?

    Conor didn't go after Ellerby because he is a part of Mayweather Promotions, just like Floyd never went after Dana.. who is acting like Conor's manager and negotiator during this situation. So it appears you are conflicted by own comment.

    You say Conor was correct in calling him a weasel or snake, yet have no facts, just biased opinion in saying so. If anything, Conor showed his immaturity, youth, ignorance and selfishness in calling him names when he was instrumental in allowing this fight to go fwd.

    Espinoza said it doesn't phase him, so not sure why what was said to him, means so much to you, that you call it abuse or him opening himself up to something he himself laughs at and said made for good press. Abuse isn't what he is saying happened to him, only casuals seems to think it's abuse.

    Your talking bollocks mate. Fight fans in the usa might automatically know who espinoza is. But there is a big wide world outside the usa. Where 'showtime' means absolutely nothing and espinoza isnt known.

    Espinoza said it doesnt phase him. But it so obviously did. If you didnt see that in his interviews after the press conferences you must be blind. He was massively shook by this.

    Yes conor was correct in calling him a weasel. In the first press conference espinoza made a big speech about how amazing floyd was and didnt show conor the same courtesy which he should of done as promoter of this event. The fact that conor didnt know how the press conference was going to go and that they had to give formal speechea showed a complete lack of respect and courtesy by showtime and eapinoza. He didnt treat conor with respect so got none from conor in return.

    My point about connor not going against ellerby when he was bigging Floyd up is that It is ellerbys job to big Floyd up and to be on Floyds side. Where as espinoza seemed to be taking on the same role when it wasnt his place to do so. He should of been neutral and the fact that he heavily favoured floyd when he should of been neutral is a cowards trick. Again showing a complete lack of respect to conor and his team and showing espinoza up as the weasel that he is. Lol
