    It is just part of negotiations. Everyone thinks they deserve more money now. Damn you McGregor!

    They all want more money and they can all get it but the issue is that no one of them is willing to do what it takes.

    "McGregor money"?

    What? Parking rented cars in the driveways of rented houses, and having a fit over $70k fines?

    Making more than 90% of the roster combined.

    Lol at Conor haters acting like he isn't rich as fuck. inb4 Mayweather who is the richest "athlete" in sports.

    They don't deserve what he has because they don't bring what he brings.

    Conor didn't get to where he is by constantly holding the UFC up for more money.

    He began to generate so much that they couldn't deny his worth.

    He may well be richer than most UFC fighters, however he's not anywhere near as rich as he claims to be.

    How rich does he claim to be?

    He probably made a safe estimate of at least 40-50 million dollars this year.
    That's a lot of money. He doesn't need to rent shit. If he was buying you would just make fun of him the other way and say he would be broke in 3 years.

    FACT

    You never know who the fans will latch on too. People loved Brock and he is a retard!!

    Pay should be based off of skills, record, and unfortunately it isnt.

    Its getting lame in 2016.....sucks so many great fights, but everyone just cares about $$$$ now. Not everyone, but alot more people.

    Not sure what your point is. McGregor is rich and makes more than all other fighters. So "Mcgregor money" makes sense.
