    Biggest UFC draws:
    GSP, gone.
    Ronda, gone.
    Liddel, gone.
    Chael, gone.
    Lesnar, gone.
    Anderson, on his way out. Numerous losses, almost done.

    Conor now holds all the cards. If he walks away from the UFC they will be looking at hundreds of millions in losses per year. Seems like he's now perfectly positioned to get his demands. 50 million and a %. Looks like the new owners will now be forced to come talk to him.

    Hate all you want but this is the reality. The UFC's revenue is mostly tied up in Conor. Time to pay the man his worth

    If anything, he has even less clout. He's been stripped of one title and is trying to cherry pick who he wants to defend his one title against.

    I kind of agree. All of the stars happened to align for him- as he was coming up everyone else was dropping off and his ego knows it. Hopefully Jones can make a triumphant return and it seems like they are going to really push Cody. We'll see

    Lol. You just made a thread saying he holds all the cards, and I'm the one being unreasonable?

    Jones isnt a big draw tho. His last fight did 322k. Only Ronda and Brock came somewhat close to Conor

    No he doesn't. There is always another fighter to take the reigns. If Conor quit today, there would be another fighter promoted by the company tomorrow more than eager to become the face of the UFC.

    Just until his next fight. Whether it's Woodley, or Khabib, especially. They already stripped him of his first belt lol.

    He's a gimmick with one punch.
    Defend a title when he comes back from his pregnancy, he must

    You're a joker guess you haven't noticed all the new fresh talent coming up, and the fact that your boys Best before date is coming up. Best before he actually as to defend a title and show the world he's far better at chasing Championships than keeping them. Even a blind man can see that Conor is no long term Champ if he can't pick his opponents.

    Maybe, but it only lasts as long as he keeps winning.

    Conor will make either of them look like novices standing.

    Ahahahahaha. A gimmick with one punch knocking out world class fighters left and right. How can you still be so in denial after every thing he has done? He's an amazing fighter.
    Orly so anyone can just come along and be as big as Conor? Then hasn't it happened before Conor was around or since he's been here? Weird right?

    I don't think anyone's questioning his skill standing so much as his ability to keep it standing. And against guys like Woodley and Khabib, that's not a given.
