Conor McGregor has had a quiet few months by his standards.
Ronda Rousey also hasn’t been hitting the headlines as the pair went underground to prepare for their battles in the Octagon with McGregor set to fight at UFC 202 in a re-match against Nate Diaz.
Rousey’s next bout is still unknown after her knockout loss last year to Holly Holm.
What is telling about the UFC is even though their last bouts were both losses, both McGregor and Rousey were still big enough to be the faces of this advert.
They still run the fight game.
