    lol was Woodley salty on Rogan last night or WHAT? Damn man. Never heard a Champion seem so bummed out lol. He has to realize its up to him to make himself a draw.

    No that is literally the job of the promoter

    UFC will push whitey above all. For rampage he had to coon to get a push.

    But ufc ALWAYS prioritized pushing their white fighters

    Stipe says the UFC told him to talk trash or something to promote and he told them thats their job. They push Ngannou to the moon over him in response.

    UFC are shitty at pushing top guys they didnt groom from the start. Look at Carla vs Cythiya, same shit.

    Woodley needs to get his personallity out there in a way that more than complaining about shit is his problem. But UFC did him no favors by never getting behind him.

    Ideally UFC would get behind Woodley but if not then fuck em, he needs to just work on building his own fanbase.

    That is the difference with spiketv era and fox era though

    Think of all the specials, personality pieces, interviews, hype vids

    They showed on spike buiilding their top guys

    Fox era they only built ronda and connor

    Ever since the move to fox it is about pushing the brand over the fighters

    It is the same problem with wwe, except guys in wwe use social media to their advantage

    ^^ I agree. Spike's lack of programming had them leaning hard on UFC promotion and side shows. Spike really helped build up UFC in the 00's.

    Jimmy Smith is a good dude.

    I love that he is replacing rogan

    Todd Grisham is also good. I liked him on ecw.

    “If he waits until August or September, that’s around two years since the belt has been defended and that can’t happen.”

    If McGregor does indeed plan on returning to the Octagon in the summer, White has suggested the promotion will relieve him of the title and book a lightweight championship fight between interim 155lbs king Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov, a bout he says is currently in the works.

    “(But) the belt would have to move on. You do Khabib vs. Tony; we’re working on that fight now. If and when Conor comes back, he would get the first crack at the title.”

    Yeah lets get Khabib vs Ferguson out of the way, it's not like Connor wouldn't get a chance anyway.

  • maxxmaxx DIO THE DESTROYER Joined: Posts: 36,871 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    im totally fine with that, but the ufc usually will bury someone so fast if they refused fights. and dana hasnt flat out said he wasnt refusing fights he just sounds like a dissappointed dad in most interviews. just didnt know when he would fight, so its almost like they never even offered him one. now they are acting like hes dodging people outta nowhere. he did work for them, they got their money now they wanna act tough

    Only thing that should be hanging is Bones from a rope, guy is a liability and will undoubtedly murder people in the future.

    I'm just glad they are taking the belt off that lazy irish fuck that never defended shit.

    Connor got lifetime money

    He cares about money not legacy

    So he will take prize fights over title defenses

    If khabib or tony manage to breakthrough as draws and ufc positions either as a top guy maybe connor gives them the time of day

    Connor got a mega ppv pay day. No way he goes to the small money ufc fight, unless he got mates in financial trouble

    speaking of gsp....everyone needs to listen to joe rogans interview with john danaher...nigga is spilling all the dirt. its really fuckin good from a bjj aspect and mma aspect. i didnt realize just how big a part he had in gsp's gameplanning..not just his ground stuff but the whole fight aspect of it too.

    Yeah, I had no idea about GSP's GI problems too. That sucks man. Dude pulled through like a champion though.

    Was really interesting to just listen to the dude's philosophy on leg locks.

    I have a feeling Ngannou gonna put Miocic to sleep. I didnt know he threw the hardest punch ever. Thats insane.

    And Conor will come back, get rag dolled by Khabib, and call it quits.
