    He headlines free cards, he can't sell ppv by himself. Dana said several times that "Nate is not a needle mover"

    "I love Nate Diaz. Nate Diaz is actually one of my favorite kids. I always got along with Nate, Nate was always great. Lowest rated FOX show ever. Lowest rated FOX show ever. His numbers, he doesn't pull the numbers in. Nick (Diaz) is a needle mover. Nick moves the needle. [Nate] doesn't pull good numbers."

    I don't know why people really think that UFC will pay more than 5 milion for Nate (he is asking for 20) when Ferguson fought for 500k and probably will accept 1 milion.

    Was booked to fight RDA, until a late injury.

    LMAO Paper view best sellers aren't they?!! get out!!!. Conor is scared, and wants to fight easy leg kicking bags. He would get humiliated badly against Tony. Conor is not the fighting God you think, and he knows it, hence why he is scared.

    So you think that people only buy a PPV based on the headliner?

    Conor's opponent doesn't have to draw. Don't get me wrong, the more numbers they can pull in, the merrier, but people will watch McGregor's fights because of his involvement alone regardless of who he fights. All you got to do is explain to the audience why whoever he's fighting is a formidable opponent and why the fight makes sense and people will buy it. That's pretty easy to do here - Conor is the Lightweight Champion, Tony Ferguson is the Interim Champion riding a ten fight win streak, and McGregor knocking him off is the perfect way to reestablish himself as The Man upon his comeback.

    Sounds right. You have the biggest draws out. I think to fix this is to lower the number of events and make the PPV stacked.

    Eventually Connor has to start fighting the guys who get out in front of him or else he will go down as the most over rated fighter in history, and he knows that. I don't remember where I saw it but I saw an interview of him after the Mayweather fight saying just that, that he needs to legitamize himself.
