How can I fight in the ufc? Last time I was in the ring I got choked out and woke up covered in feces and was foaming up pre workout outta my mouth. I guess when I blacked out my bowels went limp and it was like the Hoover dam flowing mud. I did a punch test and they said my overhand right is the same energy as a full grown elk bucking his horns into an oak tree during mating season.

"Me and everybody are always in a good place here"...such a liar and revisionist! What about the lawsuits? What about the insults between Dana and many fighters...over and over? Even though they are not my favorite, you don't see the same garbage and shady business tactics from Bellator MMA or most other MMA organizations. The only company as bad as the UFC as far as how they treat employees is BKFC. It's too bad these men think there is nothing more important than money...this is a sickness.

There is absolutely ZERO reason for Khabib to fight Conor after he destroyed him the first time. Literally dominated him the entire fight and made him tap. I’d like to see him go up to welter weight and compete for that title

If Mcgregor can make more money fighting Pacquiao he should absolutely do it without question. Dana thinking Conor should stick with UFC is not surprising, he cares about his bottle line not the fighters.

If division is stacked with tough guys, why do Conor vs Khabib? Let the tough guys battle it out and stop fueling then Mcgregor hype train. Is he good yes, are there styles that can give him problems of course . He will never beat Khabib. Let Oliveira fight Gaethje or winner of Hooker and Chandler and set up vacant belt fight in summer. Look at Tony’s career lost because of all the Mcgregor politics and injuries. This guy takes too much time off and runs from every title defense. We need real champs that defend thrones. These title reigns with absent Champs ruin divisions. Look at HW, Francis should have fought for belt over a year ago but here we are.

Have to give it to Dana man I don't think the UFC would have stayed aloat and survived them early days when they were in heavy debt makin no money. He stayed focused on wat he believed changed the rules and structure and when he had to be ruthless he was I don't think anyone could have done the job he's done the way he's done it. The man's a pure inspiration happy 20th anniversary man
