So your saying the Ref's are rigging fights in favore of conor despite the fact there is literally no gain for them in doing so?. They are not employees of the uFC, they are not paid by the UFC. If someone was going to pay off the ref it be Vegas and they would not have the overwhelming favorite with all the money on them win.  So again *** are you talking about? Do you just enjoy the taste of your own foot?


On by the way im a Holloway\Ferguson fan, you dip****, conor does not even make my top 10 favorite fighters.
