    WME went all in on a badly damaged Ronda.

    It's so blatantly obvious WME pressured Ronda into returning with her keeping Edmund and not doing media as negotiated conditions. Right from the first faceoff the weirdness was blinding.

    They planned to have her win the belt and leverage her tough image for movies for dividends and diversify their profitable fighter base to water down Conors demand.

    They didn't realise fighting doesn't care about their business plan, and if she kept Edmund, gets cottonwooled and doesn't spar or come in with any sort of confidence she'll get lit up.

    There's no way Khabib fights Conor, the way Russians tend to negotiate (M1 wanting to co-promote for Fedor) WME aren't going to risk their last true cashcow losing to a Russian and having a large percentage of lightweight division championship demand controlled by Russians. WME surely know Khabib is an ankle pick away from beating Conor if he slips that left piston.

    We should get Woodley/Thompson 2 winner vs Conor at Croke park, low risk ramifications for lightweight division. Then the Diaz trilogy or some other profitable fight, then Khabib if he's still around.

    If Khabib does fight Conor i bet you he fails a drug test if he wins the belt.
