    With his highly offensive statements he's made over the years, I'm surprised especially that bigger companies like Reebok, beats by Dre and Burger King aren't cutting ties with him.

    What sponsorship deals? Do people even get commercials anymore?

    His highly offensive stuff keeps him making headlines while he has a broken leg, it is what it is, companies drop mid tier stars, not the very top ones like Conor, despite his recent losing record.

    That's simply not true. Tiger woods for example lost a ton of sponsorship when he got caught cheating on his wife, and he was one of the most known athlete at thw time

    The sponsors don’t care how you guys feel.

    Because he hasn't offended the alphabet people.
    That's pretty much the only time it matters

    Or if you endorse a conservative viewpoint

    As long as Conor makes people more money than he loses them, he'll be protected.

    Golf is full of "polite society" hypocrites that have to pretend that they are offended by the things Tiger did so those companies had to pull their sponsorships
    MMA fans are proud knuckle dragging heathens so companies arent so quick to worry about so called offensive behavior by their spokesman in that market

    AFAIK Mcg hasn't said shit about his sponsors. he may be a coked up, drunken jabroni but he knows he can't kick the lunch box.

    Just a gut feeling that BK cut him off during the build up to the Khabib fight with his nastiness. Maybe he only had a 1 commercial deal but that wouldn't be business savvy as he claims to be. Not sure if he is bound by contract to be the Proper 12 spokesperson after the buyout but you know... douchemunity.
