    UFC now has a choice: Give Conor equity, or have a series of 300,000-buy pay-per-views in 2017.

    Tonight they were promoting UFC208 with 0-2 Holm vs a 6-3 fighter as main event.

    UFC needs the leprechaun for three dates or else they will lose millions.

    The best fights out there now: Woodley-Thompson 2, Aldo-Holloway, Bisping-Romero -- none of these will do any kind of numbers.

    IMO anyone in or near main events should fuckin demand more now. From every upcoming fight card. They canceled a ppv because they couldn't fill it. There desperate on the low while still trying to bully fighters and play the hard ass in control of the helpless fighters.

    Meh Conor will not get anywhere near the money he gets now anywhere else and the the UFC knows conor will eventually lose again and lose drawing power. It could be soon or it could be years form now but it will happen. There will come a time when conor isn't earning them any money. Giving conor equity will over the long run lose them money over the short term gain. They won't do it.

    They aren't going to be able to play hard ball as much, that's for sure.

    Conor aint got much time left at the top either.

    Khabib and Tony both beat him and we already know what Nate is capable of.

    Why are we saying Holly is 0-2? Just because she lost her last 2? Didn't think records worked that way. Agree with your point though.

    You gotta admit it's kinda fucked that ben affleck, conan obrien, mark walberg and serena williams all were given equity by the new owners of the UFC but by the sounds of it they havent even reached out to their best producer - the guy bringing in more PPV's than the rest of the roster combined. I dont have an ivy league mba or much experience running a business but i think id want to keep my all-star sales guy happy. If they can give conan obrien equity they can throw conor a few shares too.

    Yeah I don't get the 0-2 either. So when she wins, it's 1-0?

    No more like it is a lesson for ufc to learn that never hype certain fighter so much that once they start to lose, they can't rebuilt them

    Whats the point, Conor isnt going to fight forever. Yea they'll get few more 1+ million PPV buys from him, but to give him equity for that a life time pay out is ridiculous.

    Both Conor and the UFC have a choice.

    Conor is a very rich man who could live the rest of his life in luxury, so he could stick to his guns and maybe never fight again.

    Or, he could buckle and fight out his contract.

    Either way he'll have a great life.

    The UFC/WME-IMG on the other hand can bend the knee and give Conor what he's earned and continue to make record profits.

    Or they can stubbornly act like they don't need Conor and not even make enough to pay the interest on the loan they got to buy the UFC.

    A stalemate hurts the UFC much more than it does Conor.

    I suspect they will give him what he want but part of the deal will be Conor keeps it confidential.
