    UFC's always been an organization based off favoritism. 207 doesn't even have one press conference, and Conor gets pulled off 200 for not being able to make half a media week.

    Same fancies for the Iceman.

    Correct. Colin is an example of that as well.

    Stars get special treatment.

    No he isn't. He get his stuff, because he's earned his stuff from being a proven commodity. If Conor couldn't sell, he'd be irrelevant to the UFC. Ronda gets her stuff because Dana prefers her.

    Ronda's friends with Dana. Conor is not. That's the difference, and it's visibly shown in just about every interview and action taken by Dana.

    In one tweet to her 3.3 million Twitter followers, RR generates way more attention than open workouts or press interviews.

    Did I say that dumb ass? What is it with people's reading comprehension skills here?

    If you could actually read, you would've saw I said Conor earned his favors off being a draw.

    You think Dana keeps him around, because he likes the guy? It's pretty obvious he hates him.

    Ronda on the other hand he loves. She gets a different kind of treatment, and if you can't see that, you're whatever is worse than 'legit retarded' considering you already hit that marker with your English.

    Ronda "gets her stuff" because she sells as well. She is/was a megastar. McGregor is a megastar. He's so important to the company that he was allowed to have 3 fights out of the division he was champion in, effectively putting the whole division on hold and created the shitshow that it was - without ever defending it. He didn't need to rematch the champion who was unbeaten for 10 years. He got to play around at 170lbs just because he wanted too. You think the rest of the featherweights were happy about that? No, probably not.

    In Dana's words "It's hard to deny Conor anything these days" - and it's totally understandable looking at it objectively. It him took 2 fights before he cruised in a Ferrari with Dana in Las Vegas.
    It's the same with Ronda. They are the two biggest stars the company has had. They're gonna get special treatment and favoritism. Don't know why you're even trying to deny it.

    lol

    Worry about something that is real and not this made up garbage. Who cares about press conferences and crap. Ronda comes back and loses regardless and is the next villain in the Deadpool sequel (like Gina).

    so, in your mind, moving up a weightclass to fight the champion there after you just laid waste to your own division is 'special treatment'?

    ive said it a thousand times, but if youre salty about the two nate fights then blame RDA

    Stop it. Preferential treatment goes beyond ostensible friendship and non-friendship. McGregor wouldn't be irrelevant if he still had his personality but didnt quite knock people out with the regularity he does.

    The reason they've both been able to climb is because of the prominence of their win streaks and personalities. That's it. No matter what Dana pre-planned he still let McG avoid the 145 title for a long while.
