McGregor Still Hasn’t Signed Poirier Contract.

There’s a little chance that Conor McGregor might not sign an offered contract to fight Dustin Poirier at UFC 257. This information comes after Dana White provided updates on the second fight between Conor McGregor & Dustin Poirier. Issues don’t surround Poirier, who has signed his contract and ready to compete against the Notorious Irishman by January 23rd. Contractual problems surround McGregor, who hasn’t signed for unknown reasons. Inside sources suggest that Conor is demanding more massive payouts from Dana White, with the UFC President refusing to budge.

Conor McGregor has minimal time until the signing date will pass, forcing him to wait a prolonged period until Dana White offers him another fight. This means that the Notorious Irishman has several days to finalize his contract or face monetary losses. Most have forgotten with the announcement of Conor McGregor & Dustin Poirier 2 that the Irishman retired for the 3rd time in 2020. Most supporters are disgusted by Notorious McGregor extensively using retirement to evoke higher paydays. Some MMA analysts anticipate that viewership for McGregor will drastically be lower in 2021, which would follow suit with his appearances on UFC-related programming. Viewership on those programs grows smaller with each appearance of McGregor.

White has Confidence

MMA Reporters pressed UFC President Dana White for details regarding McGregor’s contractual signed. Dana White informed reporters that he isn’t aware if Conor has signed the contract, or not. The UFC President mentioned he isn’t concerned about the fight not happening & indicated that negotiations between McGregor hadn’t gone this far without him competing. Dana White promised that regardless of what happens between now and January 23rd, he’ll expect that McGregor will show at Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. Dana White noted his assumption of Conor signing the contract already, and that they’ve texted each other with the clarification that negotiations are done.

This guarantees supporters of the Ultimate Fighting Championship that the over-glorified Conor “Notorious” McGregor will compete at the UFC 257 Pay-Per-View. Supporters won’t be surprised if & when Conor defeats Dustin Poirier at the upcoming January 23rd PPV. Their last match saw Notorious outmatch & outrank Dustin Poirier.

Joe Rogan and Spotify at Odds

An exclusive contract between Joe Rogan & Spotify is resulting in the two parties combating each other. What shocked headlines earlier this year has become the $100 Million Headache for Rogan. The UFC Commentator & Podcast Host signed an exclusive multi-year contract with Spotify, which promoted his growth across larger audiences. After months of this deal playing out for millions to see, Joe Rogan is finding it harder to locate viable guests for his podcast experience.

It’s become known that throughout several internal meetings, employed personnel with Spotify had expressed their discontent with controversial statements uttered by Joe Rogan. Controversial sentiments from Rogan wasn’t previously an issue, with the UFC Commentator exclusively hosting the podcast on his YouTube Channel & free podcasting services. Since Joe Rogan has made controversial statements on Spotify, the same employed personnel have demanded: “Direct Editorial Oversight” of the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast. That included the capability to remove sections of interviews, and effectively terminate episodes that are deemed problematic.

Other employed personnel was the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast to maintain trigger warnings, fact-checked articles, and corrections at the end of each episode. This all came after Joe Rogan spread incorrect information regarding the Portland Fires, which would later require a prolonged apology from the UFC Commentator. Rogan himself hasn’t addressed issues surrounding the Spotify contract, with some inside comedic sources close to Joe, suggesting that he’d strike any demands for “Direct Editorial Oversight.”

The Controversy

Spotify should’ve been aware of which podcast host they were hiring. The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast has regularly caused controversy, with that attribute being a substantial factor for his fan’s viewership. Controversial statements are made with athletic personalities, Hollywood elite, political representatives, and pop culture icons.

Spotify trying to remove lively controversy from the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast would ruin all hopes of their $100 Million investment becoming profitable. Spotify wouldn’t want to anger Joe Rogan either, with the UFC Commentator & Podcast host infamous for not conducting business with untrustworthy parties. Rogan could move his personality onto a competing podcast hosted by his friends, like Bill Burr & Bert Kreischer.

Dave Schmulenson Calls Out Ariel Helwani

The President of the Ultimate Fighter’s Championship confirmed that Dave Schmulenson has called out Ariel Helwani to a grappling contest. Dana White could hardly control his laughter when announcing that these two have started online arguments. Most aren’t aware of Dave “The Schmo” Schmulenson, who is quickly becoming a celebrity in the MMA Community. His audience primarily relates to younger viewers of the Ultimate Fighter’s Championship, with Dave Schmulenson having interviewed several UFC Fighters. The Schmo Podcast was permitted an interview with Dana White recently, with the UFC President not deterred by the odd behaviour of Dave Schmulenson’s.

Dave “The Schmo” Schmulenson called out Ariel Helwani because of his controversial statements made over social media. The actions shown by Ariel Helwani over recent years prompted Dana White to ban this media figure from all UFC Events. It inspired Helwani to start online arguments with multiple fighters in the MMA community, who are contracted under Dana White. It’s gotten Ariel Helwani nowhere back into UFC Events & caused more rifts in the community, with Dave “The Schmo” Schmulenson wanting to stop the banned media reporter from ever returning to the MMA World.

Dana White confirmed that Dave Schmulenson was issuing a grappling match against Ariel Helwani, which genuine UFC Supporters know is considerably more tiring & challenging than standard MMA fighting. It’s an area of combat sports that Ariel Helwani has infamously questioned & remarked as weak. The Schmo wants to prove that this media representative is talking smack that cannot be backed by physical efforts. Accepting this grappling match must be accomplished in the 165 to 185 Weight Divisions, with the winner being awarded $25,000.00 towards their desired charity. Refusing to accept under these conditions will make Ariel Helwani look foolish & weak to what supports he still has in the MMA Community.

Laughing It Off

The hysterical nature of Dana White when confirming this announce is enough to make anyone laugh. He noted that calling out Ariel Helwani is like trying to fight a little girl, making light of the weakness associated with this media representative.

Dana White Turns Back on Jon Jones

Dana White Turns Back on Jon Jones

Nobody anticipated that Dana White would turn against his fighters. That’s been the conventional approach of UFCs President since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in the United States. It prompted numerous cancellations of UFC Events, with multiple fighters refusing to compete for their safety. Dana White responded by releasing those contestants from their contracts, with those fighters mostly having a minimal presence in the UFC. Now Dana White is implementing similar tactics towards his most notable contenders, including Jon Jones.

The statistically best fighter in the UFC Light Heavyweight Division has requested Dana White release him from his contract. It followed after negotiations for a bout against Francis Ngannou didn’t reach an agreement. Reporters questioned Dana White on why this match-up was declined, with the UFC President noting that Jon Jones requested an obscene payment. The Light Heavyweight Champion denied these claims from Dana White, stating the President was lying to avoid additional backlash against his recent actions. The remarks follow more in line with White’s past behaviour.

When Dana White verbally attacked Jon Jones in the press, it prompted the champion to make a series of remarks through Twitter. The 1st sentiments from Jones stated that if Dana White is going to continue lying, that Jon will defend himself & contact his lawyer, Hunter Campbell. Jones threatened to release text messages that would show White was lying & trying to destroy the reputation of the UFCs most notable fighter.

Jones most likely didn’t request a massive payday, with him being similar to Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. These men care more about the competition than anything else. However, Jon Jones should receive payments identical to other leading fighters in the UFC. This includes Deontay Wilder, Conor McGregor, Justin Gaethje, and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Considering that Jones is statistically the greatest fighter in UFC history, it’s shocking that Dana White wouldn’t already offer a massive payday to Jon Jones.

Fighting analysts speculate that under the recent behaviour of Dana White, He’ll meet the requests of Jon Jones & cancel his contract. It’s thought that this would be the final deterrent that angered his remaining fighters. McGregor, Wilder, and Nurmagomedov would become concerned about their contract safety if Jones can enter the lousy side of Dana White by requesting to much cash, who else will be attacked internally.
