Even when Stephen A Smith doesn’t know what he’s talking about, he’s very passionate about it. When speaking with Dana White on why he made the Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Conor McGregor fight, Stephen A is once again running wild. However, Dana White has a simple answer to the question of ‘why?’. It’s because, despite a fighter having an extended layoff, if you fight in the UFC, you don’t get warm-up fights.
It’s a likely story and I’ll bite, but I think it has more to do with the fact that it’s what Conor wanted and Conor gets what he wants. Period. End of story.
It is the story that Dana is sticking to and like it or not, Khabib and Conor will square off on October 6th.
White also touches on the Jon Jones situation and of course, Stephen A Smith is an animated sideshow.
I have no idea how Smith and Skip Bayless ever had a show together without killing each other.
