    I dont think so.....


    If its the sexual assault story, that's been around since January.

    If you all think this is anything more than an attempt by Conor to get the UFC to beg him to fight, you haven't been paying attention. He's still vying for ownership stake in the UFC. IDK why he's barking up that tree, he could literally go OWN Bellator and build them up instead.

    Oh there is another possibility i didnt think of before.... USADA stopped publicly announcing failed tests... PEDs? Or illegal drugs in his system? Maybe Conor got into Delahoyas stash of white powder?

    Question

    So let me preface this by saying I have never bought a PPV and have no intention of ever doing so.

    But it looks to me the UFC has hurt the fighters and their purses, and champions PPV money with this new deal.

    UFC has guaranteed money now, but now theres only one place to get the PPV's, not multiple platforms.

    You have to have ESPN+ or you dont have the option to buy the PPV.

    Dana thinks he doesnt need star power anymore.

    Looks to me like the PPV money will be shrinking.

    Time will tell.

    What say you ?

    Apparently I hear ESPN + was impossible to get the ppv.

    You had to dark web it to see the Saturday one according to Brendan Schaub.

    lol I have no knowledge of the PPV difficulties from Saturday, but I for sure would not list Brendan Schaub as a legitimate source for anything. That cat very clearly has a biased and often misinformed opinion on Dana White and the UFC.

    What i wanna know is WTF Conor is referencing about wanting "plaques" before he comes back? Its like watching a kid negotiate, realize they arent gonna get a pony/whatever extravagant thing they want, so they are like "you have to make me a 'kid of the year award.' i'll accept just seeing it on the computer, but I want it."

    Seems like most all the combat sports podcasters seem to be full of themselves and think they are all knowing....


    As for Conor, trust me, he will get what he wants one way or the other, biggest PPV draw they ever had several times over, and he knows his PPV worth.


    That is if he can stay out of court, and jail, and women that arent his.

    I am not a fan of Joe, and I could care less what his smoke fogged mind thinks, but I do watch once in a while if he has a guest I'm interested in hearing.


    Just watched a couple when he had Herb Dean on.....


    Saw Brendans comments on his own podcast.
