    Got shafted for the McGoat main event

    Always thought the heavier weight class got the main spot for champ fights
     
  2. That's good, I can see him fight even sooner now

    At least he doesn't have to play second fiddle to a Ronda main event.

    Biggest draw gets to headline.

    So...your definition of shafted is co-headlining a 1million plus card when you get ppv points and will probably make 2-4 million dollars?

    Sounds like a huge shaft.

    Didn't you see Werdum campaigning to be on a conor card?

    You're a moron. Werdum is smart. Follow the money.

    And you just saw Conor headline over Rory/Robbie....why does this shock you? Do you really even watch mma?

    Cormier vs Johnson over him was stupid as shit. Probably cost them PPV buys. Neither of those guys are nearly as famous as Weidman. That card did way worse than expected, and thats probably why.

    He's probably happy as shit to be on Conor vs Aldo card. He gets PPV points and he's going to make a fucking boatload of money because of this lol. Being on this card will probably put a few mill more in his pocket than usual.

    Agreed he should of been the main event there but the Cormier/Johnson fight was a lot better looking back at it.

    Much better main event.

    Yeah, I just can't figure out why any fighter who fights for money would wanna fight on a million-buy PPV card. I guess I'm just retarded.

    It was 3 weeks notice, it doesn't work like that. Plus 'heavier weight classes get dibs on main event'

    Shafted? He's probably thankful to be on that card. Dem PPV points bruh. More exposure for him like that could increase his drawing power in the future.

    Aldo is the longest reigning champion.

    I don't agree with it, but they can milk a lot more money from people with Connor as the headliner. After Aldo beats him the 145 division won't be headlining over the heavier weight classes for a while.
