    The guy has done more for fighters to get paid than any fighter ever In mma.

    When I was an mma fan 10 years ago the fighters made PEANUTS.

    Mma fighters were lucky to make 100k a year at the highest level in the ufc. TOP fighters were on 20/20 contracts, getting their asses beat down for Almost minimum wage.

    For mma fighters to become millionaires was only for GOATS like Anderson and GSP.

    Now many fighters are benefiting from what Conor accomplished. He stood up to the owners and took a piece of the pie.

    It's pretty easy. He did some good things for the sport. A whole lot of bad. People see more bad than good. The end.

    It was just a matter of time before the big money came in and separated the born fighters from the prize fighters.

    Who else has benefited from Conor aside from the man himself, his coaches, UFC, and the guys who fought him?

    "Fighters need to be paid more!!!!!!!"

    Also

    "If you dont exceot every fight offered you are a ducking pussy!!!"

    Also

    "Dana White/UFC treat fighters like shit, boxing does a better job."

    Then

    CM makes a shit ton to box Floyd

    "Conor is holding up the division!!!!!!!"


    Dont look for logic in any of it.

    You can hate someone and still respect what they've done. I'm sure that's the case with most people that hate him. They respect his achievements and what he has done for the sport, but that doesn't mean they have to like the guy

    All those people you just mentioned! And the people who will come after him. You literally just did a better job explaining who he helped than I did.

    I don’t get it? Conor hasn’t killed millions of people. He’s just a loudmouth annoying petty criminal who has bettered the lives of many many fighters.

    Okay, but that's a very narrow segment of the company.

    Conors not responsible for that..

    Only his bank account got bigger

    Majority of guys are still just treading water while fighting in the UFC...

    Hell stipe is and was still a firemen while being a defending hw champion in the world..alot of guys are still 9 to 5ing while fighting in the UFC..fighter pay has grown only marginally..

    The main cause of this , is the removal of outside sponsors by the UFC..and lack of competition from other promotions..

    Conor got himself and few opponents paid..thats it

    Conor hasn't helped fighter pay in general at all.

    Name 1 person who saw increase in pay because of McGregor.

    What McGregor did do is show the UFC you pay someone enough money that they don't need money anymore and they will be a huge headache and not honor contracts.

    He ultimately hurt fighter pay.

    And the UFC (and Pride) have been making fighters millionaires since early 00s.
