    Thousands of people being exposed to the UFC to watch a boxing match doesn't benefit the UFC for anything other than that one fight if they don't continue to tune in....and based on their ratings and PPV buys, there hasn't been a real benefit shown based on that one fight.

    You do realize that Conor made far more in that one fight then Floyd did throughout every one of his other fights other than Pacquaio right?

    Based on what? His concentrated efforts to avoid fighting in the past couple years? If he wanted to fight Khabib, all he has to do is ask Daddy Dana and that fight is on. Has it happened? There's your answer.

    Surprised he didn't fight Manny to be honest.
    They could have sold it "he took a goat to 10 rounds etc".
    Would have sold over 2 mil easy

    He hasn't retired.
    He'll fight again this year if he doesn't get a serious suspension for the bus.

    He's the legitimate LW Champ.

    Because Khabib damn sure isn't the real LW champ. He couldn't even finish the #11 ranked fighter who took the fight on a days notice.

    Khabib would also have to actually show up though. Don't get it twisted, Khabib's an amazing fighter, but he's pulled out of a ton of fights, and it wouldn't surprise me at all, if he ends up pulling out of a huge fight with Conor.

    Once his Floyd pay day is gone, he'll return. You can't spend the rest of your life doing commercials and sponsoring shitty whiskey by milking a fame that must be built by fighting. And his legal fees might take a huge cut from his savings.

    I'm about 75% sure conor will come back. By that I mean I think conor is leaning towards coming back. Barring jail, injury, or other unforeseen circumstance, i think we will see him back in the 8gon.

    He will GSP(semi retired/long inactivity with no injuries) it up and be back by either December, or next year.

    So floyd made a fortune without conor, how did conor do without floyd?

    But yeah im not so sure. Floyd got 80 million for the canelo fight. Conors reported purse was split between him and the ufc. Dana has talked about conor having about 75 million - that includes conors ufc earnings and all sponsorship money. And im pretty sure Floyd's sponsorships will be worth more than conors as he has a long standing relationship whereas conor doesnt have the option of this.

    Conor got that payday because of floyd, its not really possible to argue otherwise, and this is a post retirement 40 year old floyd

    Oh, he is not retired at all, just still recovering from the ass kicking he got, that is all.

    I called it the second that fight became reality. People called me crazy, said he would defend his belt before the end of the year.... and here we are...

    How many years has it been since he fought mma? Im not convinced. Hes had the apace and opportunities but all he has done is create more space.
