I mean c’mon guys, it was sabotage, not murder, let’s have some perspective!

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion, Conor McGregor, lost his marbles last Thursday, rounding up a bunch of “Notorious” hoodlums to attack a transport bus carrying 155-pound nemesis Khabib Nurmagomedov.

That was enough to earn the respect of promotion president Dana White.

“We talked, it’s good,” White told reporters at the UFC 223 post-fight press conference. “I think that there’s a mutual respect between us and obviously this week, I had so many things thrown at me. To focus on this show was insane. We’ll get back and we’ll focus on Conor McGregor.”



That's the quote in that article, but this one from the post fight pressure was one of the stupidest things I've heard Dana say.


‘People says to me, ‘Oh this looks so bad for the sport,’ and everything else,” White said during a post-fight news conference. “I agree, it doesn’t look good. But at the end of the day, there’s a lot worse that goes on in all the other sports, so I’ll take a dolly through a window any day.”


You'll take a dolly through a window any day, that knocked 3 fights off your card, injuring two fighters and almost hits your 155 pound female champion.... and you'll take that any day... what a fucken idiot for saying that.

Didn't Jessie Taylor get banned from the UFC for about 7 or 8 years for kicking a cab door off its hinges or something like this. Conor's actions were a heck of a lot worse, ruined a card (3 fights), and caused bodily harm to a number of UFC fighters. I think this is a little worse to say the least.

When he says "theres mutual respect" he really means "I have zero credibility, I'm actually more of an embarrassment than Conor, and I don't plan on doing anything about an unprovoked assault on several fighters who subsequently couldn't fight as a result."

How long until lobov is cut as the fall guy?

If Jessie had made the UFC a couple hundred million dollars first he'd have gotten the same treatment.

The best we can realistically hope for is Conor stays away for a year, everyone affected negatively by his actions gets paid really well, he fights GSP or Khabib and gets soundly beaten, and maybe some anger management classes and community service.

Conor McGregor - Throws dolly threw window of a bus carrying fighters, causes two fighters to be sent to the hopsital, ruins card, takes experiences away from fans & caused emotional trauma to current WSW champ - Told by boss he respects him.
