    Is Dana under the impression that conor will come back and defend titles going through a line of contenders like any other regular joe?

    Because when its conor: "Isnt he awsome? He asked for Khabib in Russia!"

    But when its GSP he acts all mad, saying he cant come back and pick fights if he is not going to follow up.

    Its not like GSP is some random dude who cant draw. People say Dana does everything conor wants because he brings in the money, but so does GSP...

    Conor might pretty much just get the belt and bounce the same as GSP

    I dont get this behavior from Dana. Everybody would like to see this fight. He should be thrilled to go out and make it.

    Why do you even think Dana believes what he says?

    He's just saying what he's being told he should say

    "GSP was never my friend" - Dana White

    Dana dont like GSP, because GSP dont talk sh*t like Conor. Dana love when fighters use trash talk.

    He hopes Conor will because he's young and loves money, all GSP wants to do is add a new belt to his collection.

    With Conor, there's the possibility that he will one day defend his belt. He knows that as soon as GSP wins the belt, he'll go back to pooping blood while in retirement.

    Dana isn't confident that Conor will come back and defend against contenders, but Dana is confident that Conor will come back and chase big money fights that will make UFC $$$$. GSP might retire any second and never come back.

    GSP isn't even in the same ball park as Conor. It's almost the same PPV difference between MM and GSP as between GSP and Conor.

    Just another marketing tool regardless of whether Conor wins or loses. "Conor came back after all this time and showed heart". Yet again getting another title shot without having to climb his way up. Since he's been out of MMA for awhile and Ferguson's been out on injury, they should set that fight up first...or give the shot to Ferguson instead of having Conor skip past go and collect $200.

    GSP vs Bisping did what? 900k? Conor usually sells 1.4-1.6 mill

    That's some hard math for you huh?

    Dana is just trying to pressure GSP again.

    But he will happily make any fight GSP wants. Especially him vs Conor.

    Dana is a business man playing with different strategies. He usually is hard on GSP and he kisses Conor's ass. But at the end he will let them get their wish.

    Don't put so much effort into understanding Dana. There's nothing to understand. The guy is full of shit and will contradict himself twenty times in two minutes.

    If Conor manages to beat Khabib and asks to fight GSP and GSP agrees, they make that fight. They could make it at 185 pounds just for laughs. UFC doesn't give a fuck, they want money and that's a money fight.

    Same if Khabib wins tbh. If GSP wants the fight and Khabib agrees, we'll see that fight. $$$ talks. Dana doesn't.

    Quit trying to deflect on Conor or anybody else to give GSP a free pass on his scam artistry.

    He is clearly trying to pull another scam(i.e. grab a title from another devision for the statistic value and then drop the belt and leave again) and the UFC is not gonna have it again.

    GSP already made a career and retired

    Conor sells more, is younger, and has arguably much more challenges on his future with this sport
