“I would just say like, Is the amount you are taking still fair? Maybe in the beginning when you both were building each other up. Then okay you take a big percentage. But since Conor has become five out of the top five biggest pay per views of the UFC history, then you gotta renegotiate.”

So at some point Conor McGregor outgrew the UFC by leaps and bound and brought so much value into the whole organization top to bottom and created billions of dollars of enterprise value in doing so.
“That’s why it’s like it’s crazy to see that he is still at their mercy, he is still owned by them. He still can’t do whatever he wants and they are still taking whatever percentage they were taking.”
