    You dont know why Conor wants to fight in 2020? Maybe because hes a fighter and the UFC has been shelfing him due to losing truck loads of money from having no gate for the hands down biggest draw in the sport. This whole "We cant just move stuff around for Conor" is nonsense. If there were fans and live gates dana would chug a gallon of horse urine to get a Conor Mcgregor PPV booked.

    I review contracts all day. That's what I do for a living; and my guess is that Conor is playing hardball with the UFC regarding the amount of fights per year on his contract hence the demand of a fight before the new year per a certain amount of fights in a year. If the UFC can't provide the amount of fights he is obligated too he has legal rights to get paid show and PPV monies. Dana seems to know this per his stance and thinks the UFC has a different opinion on the matter. Everyone needs to know that this is typical bargaining on Conors behalf, he really doesn't care if its Nov, Dec, Jan but he's trying to play the legal side of things atm, same as the UFC does in all other aspects. This is muscle vs muscle, nothing more, nothing less.

    No point in Conor rematch with Khabib. It wasn’t even close the first time. Trilogy with Diaz makes more sense than anything. Fighting Porier proves nothing. As far as a boxing match with Manny, I’m not interested at all. I think Conors star has gone dim and the game is on the verge of leaving him behind.
