Conor McGregor fractured his ankle at the end of the first round of his UFC 264 fight against Dustin Poirier. Since then McGregor has been on a path of destruction that resulted in McGregor saying a lot of controversial remarks. It seems the UFC has been accused of giving too much power to Conor McGregor.
While Conor McGregor has backed up his trash talks in the past, more often than not, they have also resulted in embarrassing defeats for him. McGregor also doesn’t hold any title in the UFC.
The Notorious One has been hard at work recovering from his injury over the past several months and has noticeably bulked up in anticipation of his return, though Dustin Poirier thinks he looks puffy. McGregor also never won a single fight in 2021.
Despite all this, there is no doubt that Conor McGregor is arguably the biggest star in the UFC’s history. While speaking on The Schaub Show, former UFC heavyweight Brendan Schaub accused the UFC of giving too much power to Conor McGregor, which has been detrimental to the company.
You’d think the bigger the names, the more success, guys get the power they have [but] I think UFC learned from Conor McGregor. They gave that guy too much power and although they made a ton of money, I don’t think they’d change anything but I don’t think they are ever going to let another guy get as much power as Conor McGregor has over the UFC.
I think they learned their lesson and you know he’s made hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars off them. Obviously they’ve probably made more off him but I think they learned their lesson with him but I don’t know if we will get another Conor McGregor.”
Conor McGregor is already making a recovery in rapid fashion. It was also revealed when exactly Conor McGregor is expected to make his return to the UFC. We will have to wait and see what shape Conor McGregor will be in once he returns to the Octagon.
