@danawhite spoke to @ESPN and insisted that the @ufc is doing just fine and continues to grow strong. The UFC continues to invest millions into the Performance Institute and will be making its way into boxing.

“Whoever an athlete is, I don’t care who it is, I want to fly you to Las Vegas and we’re going to meet. I’m going to walk you through this new facility, show you the gym, the trainers, all the amenities. Free supplements, physical therapy, we’ll cook your food exactly how you like it three times per day. You’ll get health insurance.”
In an interview with @tmz, @khabib_nurmagomedov ripped into @thenotoriousmma and went on to say that he’d take the fight for free:

“Now everybody forget about him because he doesn’t want real fight. He fights with only 45-year-old @floydmayweather or marijuana guy who lose ten times in the UFC, @natediaz209. This is crazy, he has to defend his belt. I don’t need money, I need only real fight, a fight for the title. I don't fight for the money. I fight for my legacy. I fight for history. I fight for my people. That's why I'm here."
In a talk with @espn, Dana protects Conor from those critics who suggest that he’s never defended the belt. He also went on to call those critics “Conor Haters”.
. . .
I see what he’s trying to say, but I think it’s more about people being impatient and having certain expectations from champions. Fans want champions to defend and fight top contenders, one after another, the way that @jonnybones and @spiderandersonsilva did.
. . .
With Conor it seems like a song and dance...”I want partnership, I want to be a boxer, I want Khabib in Russia, I want more money, I want WWE”....and I think this is what the fans are tired of and why they say he’s never defended the belt. Realistically he’s had some down time where he could’ve been defending, and the reality is that he’s never defended once in any weight class 🤔👊🏼
