    Like when Cowboy lost to Conor or when Joanna Contender fights Zhang. Maybe when TJ fought Cody as well

    The UFC have historically loved Joanna. She's probably the second most loved female champ ever next to Ronda.

    I get that obviously, just wondered if you’d seen any actual indicators.

    She also has been a great ambassador for them up til now. Does alot of extra media etc. Dont hear much disputes between her and the mangement. In this case I think the UFC sees good in either person winning,as Zhang still is gonna be exciting wether she has the title or not.

    For some reason I always felt like they reaaaaally wanted Silva to lose. Made his run and his give no fucks attitude even more fun for me.

    Watch Dana's reaction to Lesnar losing to Cain and you'll see.

    50 million people could die, and it wouldn't even scratch the surface of their extremely over crowded country.

    The most blatant case of this was with jose and conor. It was clear that Dana wanted conor in and jose out.
