    An interesting infographic. Keep in mind it was made BEFORE Mayweather-McGregor and BEFORE GSP's triumphant return.

    The author thinks that the UFC is overtaking boxing (and it might be) but if Conor never returns to mma (or even if he does, his career is likely almost over) how does the comparison look?

    Anyway, I hadn't seen it posted before and thought it was an interesting infographic and therefore thought I'd share it.

    Boxing has never been able to sell a PPV without a star.

    The UFC used to be able to sell a PPV on the UFC name alone. Now, the UFC can't sell a PPV unless a star is headlining.

    The fact is, casuals don't give a shit about either sports. They just want to see the super marquee events.

    The boxing outlook looks grim based on mayweather retiring (for real this time). So if somehow McNugget is still fighting in 2020 I vote UFC

    Yep, after 28 years of marriage dad trading her in on a new model.

    Keep in mind though, she's being sold "as-is" with no warranty or certified pre-owned checklist completed. But hey, pour enough sugar in even shit lemonade, and you can make it slightly better, some might even say palatable.

    This is very true. I mean how many people do you know who are real true boxing fans? Well probably we know more than most as Sherdoggers, but you get the point.

    Most are just concerned with what the media stick in front of them and tell them is worth watching.

    Damn 2014 was a rough one. I thought Jones-DC 1 was that year but turns out it was early 2015.

    yes because Mayweather is the only fighter bringing in the views get real. They still got Canelo who sells along with newer fighters coming along like Errol Spence Jr who will start being pushed. Then there is the HW division now in Boxing and if a Joshua vs Wilder fight happens it will easily be the biggest HW fight in the last 10-15+ years. The UFC gots GSP but for how long? There is still Conor but he'll be out of it by '20 and Jones might be back by '20. Unless the UFC can find fighters to sell PPV other then those three they are fucked. It's alot easier selling a shitty Boxing match for big veiws ala Canelo vs JCC Jr then getting casuals to watch a decent UFC card.
