    which will sell more PPV's? Neither DC or Khabib by themselves are big PPV draws, but DC has sold more. Lesnar and McGregor are both blockbuster draws, but Conor's star is still rising while Brock's is fading. Also keep in mind the bulk of both Conor's and Khabib's fanbase are in Europe so they won't be paying for PPV.

    I think the real animosity between Conor and Khabib will elevate that fight's drama to levels we haven't seen in MMA. This will be the deciding factor that helps it surpass the cringey fake beef between Cormier and Brock.

    Do you agree?

    This a joke? Conor will sell double versus Andy Wang at this point than any combination of fighters on the UFC roster ever. I'd be surprised if this bout even breaks a million, as Brocktober ended a while ago. UFC 200 was STAAACKED and did half a million less than Conor vs Nate, and that was before Conor hit next level fame with MayMac.

    Conor vs GSP outsells everything under the sun

    Conor vs anyone outsells everything

    Lesnar will come close

    JJ vs Lesnar is closer, DC vs Lesnar isn't anywhere close to Khabib vs Mcgregor, especially with the history they have.

    Conor/Khabib by about a million PPV buys. Is this even a question?

    Conor/Khabib will outsell Cormier/Lesnar easily. Conor is in his prime and is a bigger draw than Brock ever was.

    Conor vs Lesnar might break the ppv ordering system, so it's fersher the fight to make.

    I'd say Conor vs Khabib, as Conor is such a giant name that he can fight anybody and it'll do 1mill+ while Lesanr being on an already stacked UFC 200 still didn't beat Conor/Nate

    Conor v Floyd in the cage breaks any PPV record, you know this is true.

    Yes but too unrealistic for me to consider

    Conor vs Justin Bieber would destroy that too

    That's fair enough. You could say Putin v Trump would break the PPV record as well ha ha

    I don't care who sells more as they don't work for my company but Cormier vs anyone for me outweighs every possible combo between manlets.

    nope, it's only grown since the bus attack. That was a brilliant masterstroke of promotion and worth whatever legal repurcussions he suffers.

    Conor vs Khabib by a country mile. Seriously it's not even close. Conor's popularity since he last fought in the UFC (2016) is much higher as he has 4.3 million PPV card against Mayweather. It really doesn't how much Khabib can do himself, the bus attack story is the selling point and it's linked to McGregor.

    DC vs Lesnar probably does around 1 million(depending on the card and promotional efforts) and McGregor vs Khabib is going north of 1.5 million.
