    Surprisingly blunt coming from someone who works for the UFC

    Are they done with him already, just squeezing him for whats it worth and don't care about his image nor wanna protect him anymore?
    Or is it just a personal honest opinion

    He is usually very tamed and go with whatever narritive the UFC are creating at the time (it was glaringly clear with Oliveira VS Chandler if you followed that)

    Coming from the coach of Tyron "The Frozen One" Woodley this is a pretty bold claim.

    Conor is worse for the legitimacy of the UFC, and has ruined the company in that regard.

    All Paul is doing is getting paid from his pathetic teenage youtube fanbase.

    Conor is the worst thing that ever happened to the UFC.

    He needs to be a good person???

    Conor is just washed up.. If he was in his prime still, nothing else would matter.. Jesus Tyson got nailed for Rape, and is maybe the most beloved living Ex-Champ..

    Love him or hate him, Conor has done an outstanding job of drawing publicity, positive or negative, to the UFC brand.

    Dana is in no way upset with Connor in this regard and I’m sure he delivered on their every expectation. Superstars with that kind of drawing power don’t come along often.

    Din is right, but at the same time, Conor is losing and embarrassing himself week in, week out, while Jake is winning.

    When Jake starts losing, he will be regarded as a shitshow anomaly in combat sports even if he doesn't completely give up on the premise, which he probably will.

    I read how Muhammad Ali wasn't good for boxing 60 years ago. It's always the same dumb, baseless hypothesis.

    Not until Jake Paul starts throwing large metal objects as bus full of passengers, enters the cage after a fight and attacks a referee, randomly sucker punches a senior citizen, all the while having just 1 victory in the past 5 years.

    Conor is a punk/bully/coward who can't handle being irrelevant. He's far worse than Jake Paul.
    I think of Jake Paul as I do WWE. Fake fights that people want to pay to see. Whatever. No harm no foul.
    Now the Trilla thing was also embarrassing. Neither Holyfield nor Ortiz have any business being in a striking match. Shame on FL.

    As of now, I'm not sure I'd say either guy is "bad" for combat sports. I realize we collectively have a short memory, but combat sports have always incorporated freak-show elements. And similarly, there have always been miscreants and characters who spiraled like Conor.

    In the end, they'll fade away and the world will keep turning.
