Before fight week, the UFC had its business partner, ESPN, write questions about Conor's sexual allegations (see the Ariel Helwani interview). Since they're business partners, they could have told Conor the questions in advance so he had time to prepare answers--and they had every incentive to. Now, every time one of the independent journalists asks questions, Dana and Conor can claim the topic has already been addressed without answering them: Finally, note Dana's preemptive dismissal of the question: "He answered these questions yesterday on ESPN". He said this before he heard the questions. How did Dana know Conor had already answered the questions if he hadn't heard them yet? To be clear, I'm not making any statement or implication about the veracity of the accusations. I don't know if they're true or not or what evidence exists to support them if any. I'm only commenting on the UFC's deceptive methods of suppressing media inquiry. It's a clever move. A da** clever move.
