    Fedor is the real king. Not Connor Mc(I haven't defended my belt one time)Gregor.

    He WAS the King, now he's just Captain Paycheck lol, as for Cmac, give him time, he's just getting started, he has lot of fights ahead of him, Fedor is just capitalizing on what little draw his name has left. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

    "I am just trying to do my job and fight here.
    I am paid to fight. I am not yet paid to promote.
    I have become lost in the game of promotion and forgot about the art of fighting.
    There comes a time when you need to stop handing out flyers and get back to the damn shop.
    50 world tours, 200 press conferences, 1 million interviews, 2 million photo shoots, and at the end of it all I'm left looking down the barrel of a lens, staring defeat in the face, thinking of nothing but my incorrect fight preparation. And the many distractions that led to this.
    Nothing else was going through my mind.
    It is time to go back and live the life that got me this life.
    Sitting in a car on the way to some dump in Conneticut or somewhere, to speak to Tim and Suzie on the nobody gives a **** morning show did not get me this life.
    Talking to some lady that deep down doesn't give a **** about what I'm doing, but just wants some sound bites so she can maybe get her little tight ass a nice raise, and I'm cool with that too, I've been giving you all raises. But I need to focus on me now.
    I'm coming for my revenge here.
    I flew an entire team to Portugal and to Iceland to make my adjustments in preparation and fix my errors I made with the weight and the cardio prep.
    With the right adjustments and the right focus, I will finish what I started in that last fight.
    I will not do this if I am back on the road handing out flyers again.
    I will always play the game and play it better than anybody, but just for this one, where I am coming off a loss, I asked for some leeway where I can just train and focus. I did not shut down all media requests. I simply wanted a slight adjustment.
    But it was denied.
    There had been 10 million dollars allocated for the promotion of this event is what they told me.
    So as a gesture of good will, I went and not only saved that 10 million dollars in promotion money, I then went and tripled it for them.
    And all with one tweet.
    Keep that 10 mill to promote the other bums that need it. My shows are good.
    I must isolate myself now.
    I am facing a taller, longer and heavier man. I need to prepare correctly this time.
    I can not dance for you this time.
    It is time for the other monkeys to dance. I've danced us all the way here.
    Nate's little mush head looks good up on that stage these days. Stuff him in front of the camera for it.
    He came in with no **** to do that last one. I'd already done press conferences, interviews and shot the ads before RDA pulled out.
    Maybe I'll hit Cabo this time and skull some shots pre-fight with no obligation.
    I'm doing what I need for me now.
    It is time to be selfish with my training again. It is the only way.
    I feel the $400 million I have generated for the company in my last three events, all inside 8 months, is enough to get me this slight leeway.
    I am still ready to go for UFC 200.
    I will offer, like I already did, to fly to New York for the big press conference that was scheduled, and then I will go back into training. With no distractions.
    If this is not enough or they feel I have not deserved to sit this promotion run out this one time, well then I don't know what to say.
    For the record also -
    For USADA and for the UFC and my contract stipulations -

    Not sure how I feel about it. I stick by my opinion that this is all part of the plan. It's the storyline they want.

    I dunno man, something tells me this isn't a stunt. I think had he beaten Nate there wouldn't be any change and you'd see him fighting either RDA or Frankie at UFC200 and doing his usual promo antics. Biz as usual.

    Unlike Rhonda, he didn't go crawl in a hole and think about suicide, he watched the vid of the fight like 20 times in a row in the locker room right after the fight. This to me is a guy who got beat and is obsessed with rectifying that defeat.

    Why else would have demanded a rematch? From a career\money perspective he could have dropped down to 145, taken on Frankie with him being the larger, heavier guy, defended the belt, cashed a check and silenced the crowd that were pissed he wasn't defending the belt or said he was ducking Frankie.

    Or he could have gotten an immediate title shot against RDA. If he lost that he could still drop down and fight Frankie\Jose and cashed a fat check. If he wins then he's a two div champ and can fight Nate again any time. And that would be a much bigger seller as a belt would be on the line.

    Rematching Nate...Nate still has nothing to lose and everything to gain. McG has even more to lose and less to gain by rematching Nate. If he loses then his stock drops even lower and will be seen as a guy who can't even beat a top 10 lightweight. Plus the fact he wanted it at 170 instead of 155. The only thing he has to gain is proving he can beat Nate.

    To me it seems like a guy who got beat and is obsessed with proving he can beat the guy who beat him, not a ploy for more cash. Like the guy who keeps going back and fighting the school bully just to prove he can do it.

    I could be wrong, but my gut says he's only got one thing on his mind, beating the guy who beat him. But I've been wrong before...guess time will tell.

    That all may very well be true, either way this dude sells PPV's, that's what it boils down to at the end of the day, it's a business, and they're the best at it. So they mix a little bit of reality in with a little bit of fabricated drama and this is what we get.

    The fact that McG jumped up in weight and took on a very tough Diaz is enough evidence that he's the real deal.

    Yeah, he's an a$$, but so is of the biggest pricks ever to set foot in the octagon.

    Don't be so quick to shut the door on him. If guys like Arlovski can still be relevant, Conor could be around for the long haul.

    HAHAHA, They added the "Stockton Slap" to the new UFC game so you can slap your opponent 209 style!
