    I would agree with you if the fight was made before pacman got KTFO.

    It was still one of the biggest (if not the biggest) fights in boxing history.

    Do you seriously think Mayweather vs. a guy who's never had a pro boxing fight and who's going to get murked is going to outdraw that?

    Seriously, I give up on Sherdog. Y'all lose all logic and reason when it comes to a niché b-level sport like MMA.

    Conor isn't as popular as you all really think. Time to step out of the Sherdog, MMA Fighting, UFC bubble.

    For most ppvs like ufc events your right. But that was not the breakdown for the mayweather vs pacquo fights as hbo and showtime co-produced the event. I believe that will happen here.

    WHy so?

    The UFC built him. Give him frankie instead of Diax rematch and you know his value would tumble.

    He was their choosen one, but he can't survive if he bites the hand.

    Some of you really need to get this through your fucking heads.

    The UFC can offer Conor $5 million and tell him to take it or leave it. What about that is so hard to understand? Tell me what is there to disagree about here. He either takes whatever they offer him or not.

    Yeah, no.

    Conor isn't the household name Sherdog, MMA Fighting, UFC and Dana White tell you.

    numbers speak for themselves

    He's up there

    and It has nothing to do with anything anybody says.

    It doesn't take a genius to realize how big of a star he Is right now.

    Did I imply he wasn't a star? You quoted me for no reason as you didn't argue anything I said.

    I was just implying he isn't the household name Sherdog, MMA Fighting, the UFC or Dana White has made him out to be.

    Cable providers take about half of ppv revenue off top.

    As far as I'm concerned 60 million is "fuck you" money and can "ride off into the sunset"(I know its not the point- t.s is talking about fractions of the proverbial pie but still..)

    There are people actually living on 800 a month in the year 2017 so I'm not going let any salt excrete from my eyes cause Conor fucking Mcgregor is going to make 60 mother fucking million in a sports event he has no business being in the first place.

    Exactly. And he didn't so your probably the one that doesn't get it. The ufc was not going to turn down 100s of millions free money. Conor had more leverage than people thought.

    Ya maybe lol.... I'm hoping Floyd is rusty on that prediction. His style is to predicated on movement, defense and just being quicker than the other guy.

    That's only 35M after taxes.... he makes 6.5 to 7M after taxes per fight currently. He fights all the time and has to believe he will be the champ for two more years.... that's 35M right there.
