    Their PPV time ran short so they couldn't interview Cowboy or Cormier and very brief with Jon Jones. Yet, they gave like 10 minutes earlier in the production to Conor McGregor. I'm not looking for the "Conor is GOAT, deal with it" crap- he's an exciting prospect and a fight with Aldo will be good but the fights are about the fighters and it's their time to shine. Also the post fight interviews are interesting and a chance for them to show their personality and gain fans.
    The UFC is pimping McGregor so hard he gets more time than the fighters on a card hes not even on. McGregor or anyone else, that's insulting.

    I would rather hear from the GOAT than any of those other guys that the GOAT would destroy

    Can infuse the division with an outspoken challenger for Aldo

    Interesting? Yes.

    Show personality? Possibly.

    Gain fans? Nope.

    It was more about all fights going to decision than with Connor.

    Every fight went to a dec, plus other promo stuff. Pacing wasnt good.

    dont care much that Cowboy didnt get an interview but DC getting one would have been interesting, and more time with Jones.

    Agree that was bullshit. I guess they were hoping more fights wouldn't go to decision or something and scheduled it pretty tight. But fuck the McGoat.

    LOL it was so painfully bad to!

    I like that he is cocky and don't mind running his mouth a bit but damn! It was pretty much incoherant jibberish, and I don't mean the accent either.

    I kinda like his attitude but they really need to keep him to 5 second sound bites. He was really struggling at stringing words together and tryin to sound exciting.

    I actually kinda felt bad for him about half way through when it dawned on him that he had no idea what to say lol

    You telling me Brock didn't gain any fans when he talked about laying on his wife after KO'ing Mir? That shit was hilarious

    yea even a ppv needs to spend time with ads for future events to the point where there isnt time for interviews

    Why do that during the actually PPV portion?

    It should have been done during the televised prelims.

    When Conor wins his next fight and he will win he doesn't deserve the next shot at Aldo. UFC is giving Conor a fight he can easily win instead of giving him a fight against an excellent wrestler. The UFC knows they will sell out any place that the fight is held at in Ireland so all they are looking at is the money and not who deserves the next shot.

    You really can't expect all those fights to go to decision so you have to take the chance, with fans that are willing to pay for a PPV and all the casuals that come with a fight like this. To show off your new rising star, ended up biting them in the ass.

    Seeing Conor Mcgregor speak for 10 minutes was about the only thing i liked about the ppv. Such a shitty night of fights.

    Conor's interview should have been the main event.

    How did they fuck that up so bad? And why can't a PPV get extended 5 mins?
