    Ariel never shits on him, Ariel is known to start shit and cause division with fighters and stir the pot. But with Conor he gets defensive and always makes excuses. Why?

    Conor's a star. No doubt Conor's people agree to interviews and to give him information first. Real quid pro quo.

    Ariel is quite a weasel about it tho. You see him praising and defending people like Eddie Hearn for the same reason.

    Ariel used to be against Dana but now he's got a sweet gig with ESPN

    Basically he's a paid shill and doesn't want to go the way of Luke Thomas.

    Go look at the threads with almost everyone writing off Cowboy lol. Tell me it’s not 90% of Conor dickriding. Bunch of casuals apparently never seen Cowboy fight. As if it’s gonna be a 1 shot KO stiffness right off the bell.

    business. conor doesn't do interviews with people who criticize him to much. but I also don't think there is much to criticize. we should be focused on fighting.
