    This is usually right ...But not in case of PPV buys.
    PPV tango is a one person dance.

    Khabib is a much bigger star after the fight but coming off the 4million selling Floyd Connor, whatever he did next was going to be huge.

    And this is why khabibs friends will stay in the ufc. Way too much money involved now to upset anyone and miss out

    they need to build the rematch properly, which means conor winning a couple of fights first.

    they wont.

    For that kind of money, I'd groin shot Khabib the very first second of the fight, then start tapping the floor immediately to avoid a beating after he gets up.

    Yeah I don't think so.

    Let me ask you a question. How much would Khabib vs Tony do in PPV? I would love to see them fight but let's be serious here, that fight would do 600k tops.

    That's why Khabib vs Tony probably won't happen, and instead Khabib will fight Conor again.

    And that's the reason why they won't upset Khabib and his team...
    If anything, UFC's interest is for this brawl to repeat itself.

    If you take iPPV away
    It still breaks the record for MMA
    That is how big this was
