    He meant the UFC’s part of the fake contract that they sent to Dustin.

    They really out here doing that fake contract shit again like they did to Khabib a couple years ago.

    Dana pulled this trick off very well when he was asked about the fight at the press conference. He technically didn’t even have to lie for it.

    Fake contract? More likely it's a real contract with a low-ball offer knowing Conor's got legitimate other options in Tony, Gaethje and now Chandler. Person who gets the McGregor fight will be the one who accepts the lowest offer. Make McGregor versus whoever an interim title fight and should McGregor win roll out a truck load of cash to Khabib to see if he's serious about retirement would be the UFC's plan imo.

    Fucks sake. Dana White has been been caught lying so many times. Is he even in charge anymore or just the figurehead? He was properly squirming the other week when that Robbie kid quizzed him on his problems with McGregor. Maybe Porier should tag the Disney CEO in on these tweets

    Dana didn't lie, he wouldn't do that.

    Dana White doesn't tell the truth about anything. He's a dink.

    I just don’t understand the UFC. They would make an insane amount with this fight, why throw it away over 300 or 400k?

    Ufc are pathetic lowballing fighters to save a few hundred K while pawning to Mcgregor

    While, in general, I agree with the concept of you get your worth. If you feature in a fight of that stature you need reimbursed. You would get properly paid in literally any other sport, but ufc really go small time here.

    Imagine the mandatory boxing challengers getting paid filth money. Its ludicrous.

    Cowboy already got the same cuck

    yea,

    they just sent the one with his contracted price, instead of the negotiated value (for this fight specifically) and hoped he wouldn’t notice


    FUCK DAT. PAY DUSTIN SOME SILVA MONEY FFS

    Love Dustin, but if you sign a multi-fight contract for a certain amount of pay as Dustin did, you really don't have much leverage when it comes to negotiating for more. Especially when Conor is the draw here- Conor vs Gaethje/Tony is gonna do exactly as many PPV buys (or more) than Conor vs Dustin. Dustin has zero negotiating power here unfortunately.

    That is how cheap the UFC is. This is cheapness to the highest degree. They dread the term “Spend money to make money.” UFC wants it to be just “make money”

    So here we go again? What is it with the UFC and playing games with media/fighters? Everyone knew fight wasnt done whe Dana was ask about, including him, was he testing the waters? When Conor fights are official we all know, no questions needed.

    Tbh I don't mind if Tony or Justin ends up fighting McGregor instead, all 3 deserve a payday though the UFCs going to do their best to ensure they don't get one.

    If Dustin’s manager is even trying to do his job, 300-400 K for that fight would be fucking idiotic at this point. He got $250 K to show against Hooker.
    Maybe I don’t understand exactly what you’re saying though.

    Dustin should just take the fight. When he beats Conor he’ll be able to get anything he wants. Basically gamble on yourself and come to win.

    I'd rather see Conor vs Tony. Both guys are coming off lw losses where one guy is 1-1 and the other is like 12-1 so its not like Tony doesn't deserve a fight with title implications. He deserves it more than McGregor imo.
