    I don’t think it’s just a theory. Conor’s corner confirms this is what caused the fracture. Kav also goes into the X-ray discussion a few weeks before the fight.

    So it was a check, just not the one we were thinking.

    Kind of lost in the mix was just how trash it was for Rogan to sit down to interview Conor while his ankle is dangling. I mean wtf man that's not a time to interview someone.

    it’s already too late for that

    off the top of my head: Usman/Masvidal 2; Adesanya/Costa; Miocic/Ngannou 2; Weili/Jedrzeyczyk (top 3 fight I think I’ve ever seen); Ferguson/Gaethje

    all in the last year, year and a half.

    100% agree. In that interview I posted with Kav he was asked about Conor and his blow up after the fight. You could tell he was embarrassed for Conor but at the same time was like look the guy had a leg that dangling there it probably wasnt the best idea to shove a mic in his face lol

    Yea I watched it and his comment prompted my post. I really hadn't thought about it until he said that.

    Yeah Conor said some stupid shit on the mic after the fight but this is after Dustin mocked him while he is laying there with a dangling ankle. The adrenaline/pain/everything he is experiencing right now clearly he wasn’t in the best mind set. Rogan is a douche with these interviews at times

    To be fair, Conor was running his mouth and Dustin just told him to stfu.

    Pretty sure Rogan was interviewing Dustin and Conor was talking shit with the dangly ankle. I guess because he wasn't KO'd and it's Conor, he thought he'd let him get his two cents in.

    Either way I think it's safe to say fuck Rogan.

    Joe interviews people right after they got knocked out, which doesn't seem like the greatest of ideas. But like corch said, who knows if it's his doing, or DWs, or the networks?

    That was due to Dustin mocking him with his walk. I love Dustin but him mocking Conor after that injury is kinda low. Obviously Conor can be a scumbag but two wrongs don’t make a right. Lol I did find funny the thing that Dustin got so worked up over was Conor saying he would kill him…not the whole “hey your wife is a hoe and is in my dm’s wanting my dick”

    And making photoshops and saying someone's wife is in your DM's is just trash behavior. Like I get building a fight but come on man. Wife and kids should never be brought up. Conor has gone after religion and wives and people still defend him wtf. He's a trash human.

    Do they make that much more? I know he makes a ton more, but does Dustin make a lot more fighting Conor than say Gaethje?

    I think it was reported he got a mill for his second Conor fight, like 800k for his Khabib fight, and like 400k when he fought Justin. He gets about 2x for fighting Conor

    Conor demanding the trilogy gave Dustin the opportunity to negotiate from what I heard on podcasts and whatnot.

    I am a Conor fan inside the octagon but are you just now figuring this out? Did Conor’s comments about “killing him” make you realize that? Not him punching old men in a bar or cheating on his pregnant girlfriend?

    Conor now saying he had multiple stress fractures in his left leg, and the UFC and doctors knew about it. Interesting how the story seems to change every day. First Kavanaugh said he had x-rays that all came back negative, but they may have missed something. Now he had several stress fractures that everyone knew about.

    When news of the previous injury in camp came out, I wondered why the fuck he had a game plan that involved kicking with his left leg??? I know you can't 100% protect an injury in a fight, but he threw a good amount of left kicks. Seems dumb.

    They're lying. It doesn't make any sense, as you said, for someone with any kind of fractures in their leg to then come out kick heavy in their gameplan.
