    Black guys crying racism when race literally has nothing to do with it is really getting annoying, shut the fuck up.

    one person brings in an average of over 1 million buys per ppv, the other guy is tyron woodley.

    UFC is a business, if you dont bring value, you dont get special treatment

    Not really -- McGregor marketed himself early in his UFC career to get a following among the fans (you can plainly see evidence of this on this forum) From there, the UFC picked up on that and began to push him by giving him fights on main cards and as conor won, they increased the media hype.

    But it all started from Conor

    Woodley is mad that the UFC didnt spoonfeed him from the start,

    Edit** Spoonfed may be the wrong term to use.

    Black guys?
    I just see one. But good job on generalizing every "black guy" as a complainer.

    Thats exactly what he saying the first half of the video "yeah did do a little self promotion" -- No, he did a lot, established his following and then the UFC pushed it

    Conor "put the jumper cables" on himself.

    We almost saw the same thing brewing with Perry.

    If race has nothing to do with it, then why is Conor white? Answer that smart ass.

    Let's be honest, if Woodley "marketed" himself the way McGregor has, people would call him arrogant and cocky. But when McGregor does it, it's because he's smart and is funny. May not be a result of full blown racism but we've seen it plenty of times where a black fighter is ridiculed for being cocky and full of confidence but when a white fighter does it no one goes bat shit crazy.

    Conor caught fire, but there's plenty of examples of the UFC pushing him relatively early. He said "Conor did enough to show he had star power" which is what you argued with your original statement.
    Dude said "I wish I had a fraction of the push Conor and Ronda get" (paraphrasing). Somehow that's a problem

    You just said "Woodley is mad because the UFC didn't spoonfeed him from the start" that was never implied at all in what he said.

    Conor's mouth is something that Woodley doesn't have.

    No matter how much UFC tries to promote Woodley, he will just not be as big of a star as Conor.

    This UFC made Conor by pushing him is false..

    They put a mic in front of Conor just like they put a mic in front of Woodley and all the other UFC stars.

    Conor calls his shots and then backs it up and calls another shot.
