    You can see several scenes of that event in their videos.
    Is that normal?
    Why don't they promote Volkan as a part time bar fighter ?

    Cause his next opponent isnt the guy he fought in a bar. I dont know if there's video of that fight and because the conor / khabib story sorta revolves around that bus incident. Also if they didn't use the bus footage people would say they are trying to hide it...

    It made it to the news while no one got seriously injured, of course they were going to use it, they didnt even punish him, i dont think they could anyway, no titles to strip, suspend? dude didnt fought in almost 2 years, and they are not banning him, like ever...you dont throw the cash cow to the slaughter house only because it attacked other non profitable cows...They do that for the Paul Daleys or Jason High who did something out of the norm and got banned.

    Expect better threads from a black belt.

    The entire debacle was for promotion.

    ^^^^^^^^^This

    The whole debacle was orchestrated by the UFC to promote this fight. It just got a little out of hand.

    Just part of the marketing plan they have for Conor, the UFC doesn't have one for Volkan.

    They forgot to stage the area with folding metal chairs and trash cans.
