    "You have NO new voicemails"


    He's demanding they fly a private jet to him and to offering him ownership on top of PPV %'s and show money.

    As a businessman do you INVEST that much into him? Fans are fickle. Look at how much interest has dropped for Ronda.

    Not even LeBron James would get that type of service.

    No wonder Conor Casuals are delusional. Their deity has become Kanye West-level delusional to demand ownership LOL

    The haters have been reduced

    to writing role-play fantasies.

    He demanded ownership stakes and the owners ignored him. It would seem that he got his answer already.

    The owners are going to continue to ignore him and have Dana and UFC personnel do the "reaching out".

    Conor thinks he's bigger than he really is.

    In the grand scheme of things, Ari Emanuel doesn't give a flying fuck about little old McGregor.

    Connor made 10mil or something his last fight and he thinks the owners of a 4 billion dollar company give a shit?

    Connor is undoubtedly their biggest star, but even if he never loses his career likely won't last a whole lot longer. He's always been vocal about his intentions to retire early. Why wouls thwy give so much to a guy who may be gone in a couple years.

    Like Ronda and lesnar a new star will eventually replace him.

    Good, stop treating fighters like they are special.

    They are employees that need to do their job.

    that being true, is retarded

    mcgregor is BY FAR their biggest draw and they need to treat him accordingly (well, I think the undeserved titleshot at LW and him making the FW belt hostage is proof enough)

    The new owners are focusing on the future, expect to see a large push for the Platinum one. Conor is yesterdays news, they don't want to risk him pulling out of fights because of unexpected pregnancies.

    Giving him a piece of the company would be like Tom Brady getting a piece of the NFL. Not happening.

    I want Conor to betray the UFC and fight Floyd just to see the shitstorm in the media and in the mma world.

    This statement applies to any fighter.......finish your contract, then negotiate. Any popular fighter would not have achieved such recognition without the ufc platform. Nobody cares about a bellator/WSOF champ nor can they demand as much money from the aforementioned entities.

    Well, those team sports are a different system, and the highest paid players will often buy part ownership of a team after their playing careers, like MJ and Gretzky did

    Conor talks about all the money he has and stuff. Meanwhile, his new bosses paid $4 billion to the company he works for. Seriously, in what regard do the new owners have any benefit of giving an employee - a SINGLE employee, mind you - a share in their company? It's not like the UFC has a universal stock option for employees.

    Realistically, what's the alternative?

    A group of investors overpaid for the UFC and Conor is the last reliable draw they have, possibly the only major one.

    Lesnar is gone for a year, and he's with the WWE. Ronda is close to retirement and her boxing is no good (likely loses to Nunes).

    Meanwhile McGregor can fight 3-4 times a year, draw huge numbers, and people don't care if he loses.

    If MGregor fight Mayweather for a $100 million, he might not ever come back to the UFC, why would he?

    In which case, good luck to WME and other investors making their 4.3 billion back.

    Interest dropped in ronda because she hid behind a pillow and said she was suicidal and took a year off.Conor handled his loss like the double champion he is and even though 90 percent of the fighters and sherdog said he couldnt beat nate,he beat him and then when onto become a double champion.

    Conor will be a draw as long as he continues to fight,will he always be a mega draw?possibly not but he will always be a good headliner no matter what.
