UFC superstar Conor McGregor is still receiving flak for his incident back at the Barclays Center on April 5. After all, the fracas left multiple people injured and “Notorious” now facing criminal charges.
UFC fighters have been banned from the promotion’s roster for less in the past. Paul Daley, for instance, threw a punch at Josh Kosheck directly after the end of their fight. The mixed martial artist was quickly ejected from the UFC roster.
Conor McGregor, on the other hand, has not been dealt an punishment from the promotion. Speaking on his podcast Joe Rogan Experience, longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan offered his thoughts on the matter. Check it out below:
“He just keeps f**king up with this kind of stuff and no one’s saying, ‘Get rid of him!’ Think about Paul Daley. Paul Daley must be at home going, ‘Motherf**ker! F*ck Dana White!’ Until you get to that stratosphere that Conor McGregor – there’s so much money to be made, that’s the problem. The rules get bent. All Paul Daley did was throw a punch at Josh Kosheck after [fight was over]. It didn’t even connect! That could have been sorted out. There’s a level to the game where you’re so valuable – if Conor McGregor does a pay-per-view fight, especially if they do all that crazy nonsense with Mayweather – if they ever did that, they’re just printing money. They’re printing money. It’s so hard for them to not take that money.”
