    As proclaimed by Dana when he pulled Conor for not flying in from Iceland for a presser?

    He can't seriously pretend one trick mule brings in more cash than Conor.

    Etc

    Rousey is a crossover star who promoted to her audience already and gets special treatment because she is special

    I think I see the problem here.

    You're expecting consistency and truth from Dana White. If you ask him the same question 365 days a year, you'll get 365 different answers, none of which have anything to do with one another.

    Conor is special too but is not a crossover star, his audience is still fight fans (except for Conor fans on sherdog lol)

    Ronda has a big non fight fan audience

    He needs his cash cow! He has done everything to insure that she's champion again. From allowing her to take a whole year off, to not having to do press activity before the PPV. Yes the fix is in. Now if only Nunez can spoil it for us.

    If she gets the fight against the fence, a Rousey KO is certainly not out of the question. If she circles around looking to kickbox and allow Nunes some distance to unleash leg kicks and long punches like Miesha did, she'll get wrecked.

    Even with the crossover "appeal" doesn't McGregor bring in far more PPV views than Rousey at her peak as well as gate money?

    But it's the fight fans who lay down $60 for the PPV.

    She has been promoting the fight. You're just being willfully blind so you can continue to cry about it.

    I think McG has done just about the same , besides movies. He is in multiple games though.

    Ronda's biggest buyrate: 1.1
    Conor's biggest buyrate: 1.65

    If she's a bigger star yet Conor gets over half a million more people tuning in then it shows casuals don't buy the show.

    The only reason he hasn't done movie is because he's turned them down, he was supposed to be in the new xXx film.

    Ronda taking on too much while she was still fighting was part of her downfall.

    I think her real downfall was listening to Edmund and believing she had better hands than a world boxing champ.. drinking up Joe Rogan's lies that she could lay waste the entire 135lb men's division, save the champ and the top 5 guys.
