The rumours of Conor McGregor’s relationship with the UFC have been building since #UFC194 and whilst Dana White has come on social media to confirm its nothing but a media rumour, the video at the bottom of the article makes for an interesting view.
@steven_renie @TheNotoriousMMA there is no "rift" or whatever between the UFC and Conor. The hair dresser media loves to create shit.

You can clearly see in the video below that Frank Fertitta 3rd (owner of Zuffa LLC) jumps up from his seat, lifts the belt above his head and then slams it down.
You can make of the video what you want but to us that is not the look of a happy man and could explain some of the rumoured tension between the promotion and its current Featherweight Champion, Conor McGregor.
