    Obviously. Dana/UFC had made it clear that was their plan since the Mayweather fight, but publicly removing him from the card they didn't publicly announce smacks of BS and damage control.

    1. it totally reeks of damage control just as @NotSoDarkAngel mentioned.
    2. who gives a shit what Andy Ryan said? You mean the guy that's going to be 100% on Conor's side?
    3. who cares what kavanagh said?

    Neither of those two guys matter a bit in this situation. Making excuses for Conor is what everyone has been doing for years.

    but let's not forget, the UFC isn't who will be punishing Conor, the people who license him will be, so proclaiming he's 'off the card' 45 days before the event that both has publicly said wasn't even made yet doesn't mean shit.

    We'll see what happens when the commission takes action. they can't suspend him for something that happened in Ireland, but they can sure as shit enforce any action they want for him smacking Goddard.

    The UFC isn't going to do shit, we know that. It's up to the commissions to do something. Which i still think could easily happen.

    We all know that nothing of any consequence is going to happen to Conor.

    If the guy who he slapped while on top of the cage was a commissioned official, like an inspector, then that can be considered for punishment by a commission as well.



    Here's the thing, it's common knowledge (at least it should be at that level) that the commission *Refs, judges, inspectors, etc* are there to make sure that the show is run fairly, that medical staff attend to the needed and that violence only happens between the bells. Wanting to celebrate a teammates win is understandable, and jumping the gun when you think they one is also understandable. What Conor did is beyond understandable. It's fucking bush league, amature. It looks poorly on the organization running the show, the organization you work for, the commission and Conor as a fighter.

    If he's given a slap on the wrists it'll be crazy sad.

    Is he cosplaying? Or is he one of those "Furry" people now? Money gets you in to weird things man.

    I really hope Goddard is the ref for his next fight. How awesome would that be?

    Yep, knew he was going to bring up the fighter who died for the sympathy points. If Conor cared so much about fighter safety why was he trampling an “unconscious fighter” — as he put it — to try to get at Goddard?

    Bullshit apology.

    No mention of the strike he threw at the person while he was sitting on top of the cage.

    Made a shit attempt at justifying going after a ref.

    Fuck that noise.

    a whole lot of words that together say absolutely nothing and don't even address what he did in the first place.

    Nothing like hacking up a PR written statement.

    I’m a fan but that apology from Conor was completely empty and meaningless.

    What a slimy move to try to play off that fighters death. Conor was in there to celebrate nothing to do with concern of the other fighter.

    I don't care if he is secretly killing puppies. Get him a handler so we can see him defend his title.

    The uproar on here about this is funny. Connor is out of control, but who hasn't been? This guy. Who hasn't had a bar fight or two. These are fucking fighters. It's not night at the opera. Also he pushed a ref. Where was the huge out rage when big country politely pushed big john in the ass? Hell there wasn't this much outrage when Jones ran from the scene in a hit and run on a pregnant lady. We got senators molesting minors and we are worried about out of control Irish men. For fucks sake we are talking about the Irish.

    On topic I want Diaz to beat him but Connor to beat Ferg. Then I want Gaethje to fist fuck them all.

    What a goofy picture he put with his ridiculous apology. That is entertaining, though, intentional or not.
