Fans are totally shocked at the shortest video ever, despite including some moments of greatness the video includes the Dolly-Bus incident. It looks like the promotion is showing zero interest in promoting the fight which has promoted itself to the point. Still, a lot could have been capitalized, but all we hear is a few Joe Rogan's podcast's clips playing in the background and some sorry faces around Khabib and Conor.
Despite the stakes being high, the video shows zero effort to promote the fight. People have passed harsh reaction on the video release and are blaming the UFC president Dana White for all of it.

As we all know that UFC 229 is based upon many dramatic events, like Khabib calling Conor "a chicken" to punking over Artem Lobov, and then in return Conor's famous dolly-bus attack has given enough of the reasons for fans to go buy the tickets or pay-per-view but the fighters, as well as promoters, aren't putting any effort on possibly the highest grossing match in the history of the UFC.
Let's take a look at their first video: "The wait is over"
It's the longest of all, but it starts with a long bus incident and very small clip showcasing the fighter's skill, at first the production should realize that it's not WWE.
In its second video: The World Is watching, nothing about the buildup and their rivalry is shown, its just bam-bam, and it looks like Conor is given more space even in the 30 second's video despite being a challenger.
The third video is named UFC 229: Khabib vs McGregor - Here We Go, shows Conor and Khabib up-close, a few of their finishes and same old Joe in the background, a lot of moments like "This Is the Numnerone Easy Fight" (From Khabib), "We Will See" (from Conor), Conor's Court case, Khabib talking to Dana in between the rounds were nowhere. We can say that these three promos combined still wouldn't make a decent single promotional video. UFC should at least check the youtube's fan-made videos before creating one.
UFC 229 pay-per-view takes place next month, Oct. 6 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
