When Conor McGregor predicts anything beyond a first-round Diaz KO, he typically gets it right. So, now that Mystic Mac has made good on his dual-weight prediction, it's time to see if the UFC's new, Hollywood owners will bend and give him a piece of the promotion.

Unfortunately for Conor, , the guy you could say carried the UFC on his back from 2000 to 2004, doesn't think will become part-owner of the UFC, even with the new management. He told TMZ:

Looking back, Tito did carry quite a bit of the floundering (at the time) UFC on his back, but he was also merely stopping the bleeding. The UFC was quite famously losing money hand over fist until the first season of The Ultimate Fighter helped nudge the company into the mainstream. Back in his day, Tito was averaging around 100K PPV buys for his legendary title defenses. Conor McGregor is averaging more than Ronda Rousey and Jon Jones, for example, combined.

So the negotiation needs context, and Tito is not Conor.
