    Okay Yoel I could live with because it kind of just worked out for him through luck but that’s still pushing it

    Aldo is ridiculous, he’s lost 2 in a row one of them badly and there’s plenty of contenders dead set

    we have fighters like tony Ferguson who’s 21-1 in his 22 fights, khabib waited till 26-0 to get his shot.

    Gaethje just won 3 in a row all first round and yet it Conor beats the man who just got KO’d in 1 round that leap frogs him to the belt.

    wtf????? There’s talks of Jorge defending a make believe belt

    Dana used to always shit on boxing with its belts but he’s heading down the same road

    At least in WWE the #1 contender gets the shot

    Do you understand terms such as "profits" and "shareholders"?

    Ufc is entertainment not sport . It’s a fight promotion with the goal of making money . Most times the top guys get the shot but sometimes people who draw more money do. Back in the day they didn’t even have rankings so it’s no big deal.

    It’s fried chicken Friday by the way

    People should really stop freaking out about Conor's supposed title shot if he wins against Cerrone. Khabib doesn't want the rematch, so it's absolutely not a sure thing that it will happen.

    And if Khabib loses to TFerg, they could even try to make the rematch without it being a TS.

    I don’t really think Aldo getting a title shot is going to fill Dana’s bank account up, same for Romero. They made one of their biggest stars wait till he was 26-0 so Yeahh

    More marketable fighters get preference because they make more money. That's all there is to say irrespective of whether you consider that right or wrong.

    It's clear to a lot of people that Aldo actually won his last fight... so I can see him getting a shot.

    Same fight, different judge, & Aldo gets teh nod, would you still have a problem?

    So are all sports not really sports? Or is the UFC somehow different? And if it's different, why? Just about all professional sports have entertainment as part of their function.

    Honestly, at this point, im not sure why dont they just book Conor Vs Khabib already.

    What is the difference really?

    It’s different . Other sports they play and the top two teams get to fight it out to see who is champion. With entertainment, UFC, WWE , exc they can throw the biggest draw in. The promoters put on fights to make money. It is there job. Rankings don’t really matter , we never use to have them as you would know if you were watching long and didn’t just come in because of Conor or Ronda.
    Fighting is entertainment and it’s the promoters job to make money

    Because every sport except MMA and Boxing is structured to provide the best. There’s no inherent bias by the league or organization and every style of play has equal value and chance to win.

    You don’t like a defensive team? Well then score more than them and win. If not, you’re going home and you’re not going to get a rematch because the commissioner wants to.

    MMA and boxing are enterprises where making money is the only goal. They have no structure and no meritocracy.

    Dana White has cut people with fantastic records because they don’t sell and he has supported pieces of dirt like Conor, Jones and Rampage because they bring him millions of dollars.

    The UFC is a business where idiots risk their health and their bodies so sociopaths like Dana White can become a billionaire.
