    How Conor McGregor bus attack went from 'disgusting' act to promotional material for UFC

    It’s hard to believe it was only four months ago that UFC President Dana White sat there looking shaken and upset as he described Conor McGregor’s backstage rampage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn as “the most disgusting thing that has ever happened in the history of the (UFC).”



    In hype videos rolled out at a UFC news conference this past Friday, and aired again during the UFC 227 pay-per-view the next night, that “disgusting” act seems to have morphed into a compelling advertisement for the main event of UFC 229.

    . . .

    On one hand, it just makes sense. How do you tell the story of this rivalry between McGregor and UFC lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov without including that explosive chapter in their recent history?

    Plus, all the good stuff is on video! What do you think the UFC is going to do, just take this WWE-worthy footage and bury it when it comes time to sell the fight?

    Then again, how are we supposed to watch video of McGregor attacking a bus filled with fellow fighters and take any of that former outrage seriously? Not only did the UFC do absolutely nothing to punish McGregor for an act its representatives vigorously condemned, now the company has turned the whole thing into a commercial.

    Yeah it is disguisting. Michael Chiesa couldnt fight because of Conor. Ray Borg also had some glass in the eye.

    They should punish him, but they reward him - they give him TS. Its not fair.

    Why wouldn't they use it. It's not like anything serious happened. Borg got pink eye and Chiesa got a scratch. Who gives a fuck.

    Bunch of sicko weirdos putting faith and trust in the criminal judicial system.

    They should have gone judge dread on their ass and taken the law in to their own hands.

    Personally, I always felt he should have faced the death penalty.
    The terrorism inflicted on new York and acts of violence that has subjected professional athletes to a lifetime of fear and injury is despicable.

    Failure to punish McGregor is a despicable act of disrespect and cowardice against the female fighters in the bus. White should be terminated immediately for this epic failure.

    Dana was just mad because Conor is so much better at Dana's job than he is.

    It was obvious that Dana would play the disgusted President of a respectable company that does not tolerate such actions and that he woud then turn around and use every second of it to promote the fight.

    He is a weasel.

    But of course it will help sell the fight. Also it's part of their rivalry. So it kinda makes sense. Playing the shocked President is what was truly despicable about this. He loved every second of it.

    Ideally, I wish UFC would take a stance. They don't have to promote this, but FOX, ESPN, ect. everyone else would have done it for them. I really don't think it would have hurt the promotion.

    But I knew they wouldn't, these guys will sell out their titles, their rankings, their fighter's health, any integrity the UFC had.

    The UFC has resorted to promote an attempted terrorist attack on a bus at a major sports arena in NYC.

    This incident with Mcgregor is absolutely terrorism. Just because the guy is white, blonde and famous doesn't make it any less of a crime. Had that been Khabib's crew with like 3 guys named Islam, you'd definitely hear about it on FOX news and most likely they would have been shot on sight or at least be facing terrorism charges and most likely the death penalty. Before you Conor fans say this is ridiculous and try to downplay it just think about it. A major sports event in NYC?

    It is just that rich white man privilege and collusion with the UFC that allows him to get away with terrorism.

    Anybody with a brain already knew Conor will get a slap on the wrist. It ain't fair but that's how life works so deal with it. We are getting the biggest fight in ufc history and that's what matters the most.
