Dana is all over the place regarding who is and isn't being stripped. I've given up trying to make sense of things like this because the whole thing is a circus. None of it makes any sense, there's no consistency in anything the UFC do.

Hes not. When/if Khabib and Holloway make it to the fight on Saturday, McGregor gets stripped and the winner is the legit LW champ. Ferguson has already been stripped of his interim title.

What they need to do is ditch the interim titles altogether. Just leave it at #1 contender. If the champ in any division does a McGregor on it, just have the #1 and #2 face off for the belt.

He picked the route that earned him and his family the most money so he could provide everything they could possibly need in life

I would love to have seen him fight 3-4 times over the last 2 years, but Im happy for him. hopefully he has a few more fights left in the octagon

He is. He's all over the place, he's playing word games, won't say things plainly. For months he wouldn't even say that Conor would be stripped. He literally just said Tony would not be stripped. He won't have the interim title any more...but no, he won't be stripped, Conor is the only one we are stripping. It was in response to a question by Ariel about why Whittaker was not stripped of the interim but Tony will be.

I'm not looking to argue with you about semantics, the point i'm making is that Dana is all over the place, he says whatever suits him at the time and you can't take anything he says as gospel. There's no consistency to anything the UFC do so you can't use past decisions to predict their future ones.

Hes terrified of not having a champion or a championship match.

I hear you, but as I said, the interim thing is a load of bollocks. Dana saying Ferguson is #1 contender. Which is what the interim title is/was.

But yes, Dana is very inconsistent, there are no set rules about mandatory defences and so on. And hes capable of being a complete dickhead too like he is with Mighty Mouse and the flyweight division. Hes soley interested in making money. But thats his job I suppose and not unusual for a big promoter to be a cock.

Hes good friends with Donald Trump, what do you expect?!

P.S. He will love if Conor steps in and starts trash talking the winner at the weekend. Conor will get whatever fight he wants next in UFC. A LW championship fight gives the UFC 6 months of "Thats my belt, I'm the real champ" promo to knock about with.

McGregor still has an actual belt......if/when he ever returns I'm sure he'll be parading it, all part of the fun

in fact I'd imagine he'll have his 2 belts in front of him

You can hardly parade a belt if you're beaten in the octagon for it, granted Ferguson aside


We can go all around the houses on the whys and where for's with McGregor (and everyone has) ....but he's not been beaten for his belts

Yeah. So does BJ Penn. Should he be parading his too or do you think you he actually has enough self awareness to know how cringe that would be?

Did he not lose twice to Edgar for a belt? has he not lost his last what 5 or 6 fights ? yeah him holding up a belt in a press conference would be cringe


Jon Jones brought out his belt after his ban with Cormier, I didn't see the cringe

Wouldn't be surprised if they're looking for Khabib and his crew. Definitely up to no good.

Can someone please conspiracy theory this with the Kinahans and the Dagestan dictator and how it'll cause some political issues
