Didn't get to watch the fight. Did it look like Jones was trying to make sure he didn't get hurt so he could be in 200 or was he just having a bad performance?

He was tentative, he even looked nervous like he was going to puke during the walk in

welp, no surprise but Conor is a genius in PR stunts.

Back on UFC 200. Likely bigger than ever.

Lol I feel like there's a tinge of desperation coming from Conor, trying hard to get back on this card.

This is where you offer him an undercard with an undercard payday fighting someone else, rub the puppies nose in it. It will never happen but it sure would make for great tweets.

Conor getting desperate now. Like I said before, UFC doesn't need Conor as much as Conor needs UFC. The noncompete clause in his contract ensures he works nowhere other then the UFC until it's up. They have him by the balls and he knows it. Fuck him and his primadonna attitude

It just seems like he overplayed his hand and it backfired. Trying to get special treatment, then pretending to retire hoping they will bite. Meanwhile the UFC is pretty much not saying shit other than the fight is off while Conor tweets a few desperate things hoping there will be some kind of huge fan uproar to make the UFC cave.

When you're fighting Nate Diaz and you're the one who's not showing up to the press conferences instead of him there's a problem lol

Had he beat Nate the first time and was still riding the unstoppable hype train maybe his antics would have worked

I feel bad in a way, as he has some actual grievances about doing a ridiculous amount of press yet is still expected to be the best fighter in the world. Ronda went through the same thing, and she's been watching this closely as she has the exact same issues.

Unfortunately for both of them, it doesn't look like Fertitta is going to budge on it at all.


At the same time, he couldn't possibly have handled this any worse. I can't stand the way MMA fans react to a fighter when they 'lose face' in a fight, but when they say something stupid, they kind of deserve the backlash. He became the boy who cried wolf, and it's not even funny in a Chael way, it just came across as pathetic.

I agree, that's pretty sad.

Claim your back on 200 and it's not true. Connor just showed his cards, and he lost. Put in him the pre-lims.

the thing to remember about this is it isnt the best fighter in the world doing it. its the guy with the best mouth. the guy who can cut the best promos. and what hes doing is not wanting to be part of the promos.

It's just ironic how he got famous off of talking mad shit and now he wants no part in doing all the talking. The same thing that got him to where he is today and making the money he does now.

Ariel tweeted 8 hours ago (!) that the UFC was going to announce the main event for UFC 200 "soon"

8 hours later and we're still all waiting

If Mightymouse moved up to fight Dominick Cruz or TJ I might tune in to watch it, if it was free and all my other plans fell through.
