    • St-Pierre has come back for big money fights only. Is indicating he's going to vacate MW belt, and move down to WW.

    • Woodley is not a big money fight.

    • They have to be smart enough to know that McGregor is no match for Ferguson or Nurmagomedov. Not only that, he would likely get embarrassed by either with a first-round submission.

    • McGregor's value is at its peak right now.

    • They cannot afford a McGregor loss to a mainstream unknown.

    • Additionally, McGregor is making big demands after having his stock raised though the roof from the Mayweather bout.

    • There are only three big money fights in MMA proximity, and it's either a third Nate Diaz bout (2mm buys), a Nick Diaz bout at welterweight (2mm buys), or a huge St-Pierre bout at welterweight (3mm buys).

    • UFC desperately needs a 3mm show in 2018 to make up for the lackluster PPV buyrates in 2017.

    • Pragmatism: a St-Pierre-McGregor bout satisfies both men's demands, and does the business UFC needs.

    • St-Pierre vacates the MW belt, McGregor vacates the LW belt, Whittaker and Ferguson get promoted respectively, and the branded reasoning for the belt vacations is both St-Pierre and McGregor want to "make history" (their epic bout is above championships).

    • I wouldn't even be surprised if this is already planned as a 2-3 bout series.

    It's such a gross mismatch I can't see it ever happening.

    I don't think Conor would take such a fight, since he would be beat badly and then it might get harder next scam he tries like rematching Mayweather or boxing Pacman or the like. Sure, bigger guy with legendary career, but at some point people should stop buying the hype as he loses more fights.

    I can't see them putting their two biggest draws on the same card when they can have two big cards instead.

    Also, major mismatch.

    2 millimeters. 3 millimeters. Stating unknown numbers as facts.

    that's not a bold prediction, it's either him or woodley, and we all know who is the biggest draw between them

    McGregor won't go to 170. Woodley, GSP and a whole host of other fighters would destroy Connor. he's not stupid, only his delusional fans are

    The way Conor blows through money, he will need another big fight soon.

    Why can't people understand that McGregor isn't coming back?

    He wanted ridiculous demands to fight Ferguson.

    What do you think he's going to ask for in an almost guaranteed loss to fight GSP?

    McGregor - "I need a private island."

    I agree with you OP. Conor seems to like fights where he has everything to gain and nothing to lose. This fight fits that mold, as GSP would be a big favorite and it wouldn't hurt Conor's stock much losing to the guy who was just MW champ. I think this fight is likely if GSP doesn't retire. I can't see Dana wanting to give GSP a shot at the WW title against Woodley after he said he'd be pissed if GSP didn't defend against Whitaker.

    If GSP were to defeat Woodley he would likely retire after that fight, or make one defense against a guy like Conor with a big name. I don't think Dana is a huge fan of GSP's and I doubt he wants him to win the belt and walk away from the sport again leaving the division up in the air.

    I'm no McGregor fan, but this:

    "They have to be smart enough to know that McGregor is no match for Ferguson or Nurmagomedov. Not only that, he would likely get embarrassed by either with a first-round submission."

    Is wishful thinking at best. I would favour Khabib to beat Conor, but Tony would be unconscious in less than a round. Conor might be polarising shit talker but the reality is, whether people want to accept it or not, he's easily one of if not the best LW.

    He's fucking the division by failing to defend, but I that fact doesn't obscure my ability to see that he's still better than just about any FW and LW on the planet.
