    So did Nero. Just replace UFC with Colesseum and lace Proper Twelve with lead and arsenic and its basically the same thing.

    Not the best timing to point this out. Why wouldn't Conor comment on this fight?

    It's two guys he's beat fighting for a chance to fight Khabib for the LW belt.

    Conor's not inserting himself into the narrative, the narrative was built around Conor.

    Freekn ping does it too - it's a bit annoying (and I actually like his analysis until he starts doing this)

    I actually think its UFC requesting that he tweet about fights, to share his clout with them and directing fans to watch the fights. When he tweets ahead of the fight card that might get a few more thousand people to order the PPV.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but Conor beat both of those guys who just fought for the interm title. He’s part of the narrative, if anything Ariel is injecting himself into this.....

    Now that Ariel is at ESPN guess he doesn't need Conor anymore

    Dana didn’t buy the retirement story, fans didn’t buy the retirement story, so plan B (or C or D).

    Nah, just taken out of context.

    Conor did a lot for his career, he'd be dumb do a 180 on him

    Why wouldn’t he? Why is everyone barking about Conor trying to stay relevant? It’s how he feeds himself. He generates hype around fights he’s not even involved in just by talking about them. The UFC loves him for it. The sprinkle that mother fucker on everything like marshmallows in lucky charms. All he’s doing is improving his value for when he inevitably returns. No one ignores him. He’s constantly a talking point in the mma community. I can’t stand the guy as a fighter or a talking head but the dude is a master of keeping his stock high. His flagrant douchebaggery has made him very rich. Even after getting embarrassed in his last outing everyone tunes in when he fights or links himself to others fighting. The only good thing (apart from his personal gain) about it is his opponents get once in a lifetime pay days. Shitty thing is it comes at the expense of the title’s/division’s integrity.
