    Conor Nate did close to 1.7. Khabib is a bum who has never headlined and could only make prelims of Conor's last fight.

    Conor is the Superbowl. Trying to underpay Conor is like trying to purchase a one minute ad in the Superbowl for 50 thousand dollars. It won't work.
    Conor IS the game at this point. Funny thing is, Nate is probably tougher to finish in 5 rounds than either Tony or Khabib.

    Doesn't mean shit. PPV buys shouldn't mean shit to fans.

    It's just an excuse for a fighter to duck tough competition.

    Which is why Conor is retired he'll never fight again because he's too expensive. Enjoy his tweets though.

    Conor fans seem to care more about how much money he can make and how many PPV the UFC can sell than actually seeing him fight.

    Kevin Lee is clearly a superstar.

    Funny thing is Khabib is undefeated and Tony hasn't been finished since 2009. Try harder, ya goof.

    Yeah Tony and Khabib have never been finished in a fight, while Nate has (by a guy Tony ran through). But I do agree, Nate is way harder to finish than those guys. The proof is there.

    Conor fans turn into business men really fast when Khabib is brought up. It's really odd actually would you want your favourite fighter to fight more often? I mean Cruz got his ass handed to him by Cody but I still want them to fight again.

    Conor McGregor himself sold poorly, when he was fighting in a Mighty Mouse card. UFC 178 sold like 200 000 buys, and the card was stacked. McGregor vs Poirier, Kennedy vs. Romero, Alvarez vs Cowboy, Nunes vs Zingano and of course Mighty Mouse.

    People just don't want to buy anything that has Mighty Mouse in it. Nothing against the guy, great fighter and pretty fun to watch in my opinion.

    Conor and Nate got a fuck load of press and hype.

    UFC barely did shit for Tony vs Lee

    Ain't nobody got $60 for that

    Sad thing is I think the hype of Lee vs Chiesa fight would have done better

    Lee didn’t really earn the shot.

    Conor is overrated. Khabib grinds him out within the distance.
