Dana says those wanting Conor stripped are haters

I mean, I get what he is trying to do, but at this point all this is just not believable. Said he "hopes" Mcgregor fights next summer but no plans to strip him. Also said Ferg could fight Khabib vs Barboza winner to see who "gets" to fight Conor.

"For people to suggest that, you're just a Conor hater," White told ESPN. "Because if you look at how everything played out, Conor has fought everybody. When he won the 155-pound belt, he dropped the 145-pound belt, which we made him do. He tried not to do it, but he contractually had to let go of the 145-pound belt.

"He became the 155-pound champion, and his next fight was against Floyd Mayweather. He has to defend the title now. So, how has he never defended the title?"

“Whoever wins the Barboza-Khabib fight – while we’re trying to figure out this Conor mess – could end up fighting Tony Ferguson for the opportunity to fight Conor McGregor,” he said.

How has he never defended?  By never defending. Yet criticizes GSP. 

Any other champ would have already been stripped, The UFC titles don’t mean shit anymore. 

The only divisions with real undisputed champs are 135 and 125 the rest are either interim or we’re just given the belt back

He couldn't come up with anything better than that? That says alot.

Titles just get in the way of good fights. People shouldnt put too much stock in them imo. I've never in my life have said "I cant wait to see the LW title defended" Usually its " I cant wait to see this fighter fight that fighter" So I agree with Dana somewhat, in regards to the logic behind the "Defend or vacate" chant from the "fans" Realistically, a lot of it has to do with people just disliking Conor. You never heard calls for other champs to lose their belts after a year of inactivity. Aldo, Cruz, GSP etc all went over a year without defending their title. SO who really gives a shit? Unless you are a professional fighter in the UFC, you are just bitching.

Fuck the haters!

Conor Bless

His personal friendship and business relationship with Conor transcends the obvious imminent realities of the LW division and sporting aspect of the UFC. It's the flip side of the hater coin, he's in love with Conor and that's fine, most MMA fans are. Boxing Mayweather does change things and McGregor is special, a unicorn as Dana says.

We just have to view Ferguson as the Champion now and Conor as the Interim Champ. If Khabib wins and fights Ferguson next, those two will be on a 19 fight combined win streak at LW in the UFC. Perception becomes reality. The bs with belts could end up hurting the UFC brand. The prestige of the titles must be maintained.

the problem is, that is holding back Tony to make millions with the real belt as long Conor got it.

The UFC is becoming less like a sport every day.

Conor SHOULD be stripped. 

In fact the only reason Conor doesn't fight GSP, and you know it would be huge numbers, is because Dana knows GSP won't play ball like Conor will and when Conor loses he's afraid his golden goose won't be worth anything.

Jeesus, at some point here how can this still be a legit sport? It's a huge circus these days.

Smh.. UFC is officially a fucking joke. Every single fighter on the roster should REFUSE to fight. Let this joke of an organization fall apart. Apparently the way to get paid in this organization is to sit out and not fight anybody while making crazy demands. You can sit out a year until the storm of contenders has beat the shit out of each other and cleared the entire division for you, but that’s some bitch shit.. Dana is officially Conor’s little bitch at this point.

 

How many times has Tony Ferguson earned this elusive title shot already? The hype job McGregor refuses to fight or release the belt, and the corrupt af organizers are ok with it because Conor’s their cash cow.. fuck the sport of MMA. This shit is corrupt af. Tony is the only mf whooping ass in this division. Conor has only fought 1 time to earn the belt, gifted that opportunity. Since then his opponent that night has fought 3 times. Not a single belt defense ever, and this scumbag Dana White has the audacity to justify it. Fuck Dana.. UFC is corrupt af. Faker than pro wrestling. Real fighters earn it, get no love from the brass. Conor sits out and ducks those who will whoop that ass and he gets to pull bitch shit with the approval of Dana White himself. 

How can we say Conor has never defended the belt?

Uhhhhhhh....

Cause he hasn't? In two weight classes? In two different companies? And he also ran away from a fight with Frankie?

Dana Hypocrite White. Bitchmade faggot.. going against every disparaging remark he’s ever made against every other fighter to support this fraud. Selling the game a hype job, and protecting him against every credible threat. Fights only midgets. Can’t KO guys his size. Refs helping him with early stoppages and shit..obviously paid behind the scenes to HELP the investment. Fighters should get crazy and just go beat this Mf up in the street. Bring a camera crew and just go get it popping in the street. The publicity and star power you would get for KO’ing this clown would be worth it. You’d deal with the legal aspect, if the clown even wanted to press charges, and then be rewarded with an instant highly marketable grudge type of fight. TMZ, Worldstar, and every single media outlet would be hyping it up and showing replay after replay of your work. Conor would want to redeem himself, and you’d be the talk of the world. Gotta get crazy if you want to force the chicken to risk his manipulated force fed hype train..he knows that once he’s exposed it’s all over. It all goes away once he gets destroyed. Nate broke him and he got that cheap ass win to market his bs one last time. Tony ends him and no one will believe in the fairy tale again..

Dana will never let GSP fight Conor no matter how much the fight would make.



Dana knows Conor would lose and then GSP would not jump when Dana wants.



Dana knows he can make a bunch of super fights with Conor and Conor will always jump for him.



No way Dana kills the golden goose.

NJstileNJ -

Pump the breaks, Stipe and Woodley are legit undisputed champs as well

agreed..

but I'm not sure really how much greed is involved... never say never.

KnockoutThoughts dropping some truth.

Strip him. Who cares? He'll come back and get the title shot regardless. The lineage of the real title still stops at him, in two different weight classes. I just don't see why fans give a shit. These same fans stream PPVs and dont purchase anything related to these fighters, to put money in their pockets. So it just seems like a lot of the noise is based on feelings and not coming from an actual concrete standpoint. That's why Dana is saying what he's saying. For the most part, these guys/chicks are treated like Strippers/pornstars. Just there to give you what you want and if they differ from what you think they should be doing, fuck em.
