    What's the chance of Mayweather and Conor teaming up after the super fight and co promoting a new mma organization? If so, could they put the UFC out of business?

    Unlikely, but I wouldn't mind if it did happen.

    This is groundbreaking stuff right here. Innovative threads like this are always welcome. Never witnessed a "Death of UFC" thread before.

    They said UFC was going to die in 2006.

    I'm still waiting

    They are both better promoters than Dana White.

    I guess if Conor wants to spend the next 10 years in litigation not working anywhere in North America, sure it could happen...

    Highly possible, both want to promote mma. If they want 51% ownership, they need to scrape together about a billion dollars of their own money, and a billion dollar investment money, if they are to have realistic change at vanquishing the UFC. If they were smart they would figure out a way to go 1-1 and then have a trilogy fight.

    That's crazy talk!

    2006 was like full of superstars! You had Chuck Liddle, Randy Couture, Rich Franklin, David Loieau, GSP, Penn, Hughes,Pulver and Sean Sherk as champions and contenders.

    Meanwhile guys like:

    Frank Triggs, Joe Riggs, Karo Parisyan, Nick Diaz, Diego Sanchez, Evan Tanner, Babalu and many more fighters as contenders as well as up and coming super stars!

    In my opinion, 2006 and 2007 was the best damn year! So many stories like Serra upsetting GSP, Riggs/Diaz brawling in the hospital as well as Karo Parisyan training seriously for a short time and making noticeable improvements.

    absolutely.

    forget the name value, but fighters in general would absolutely choose former fighters (or current) to promote them over some corporate suit dicks who are only there to leech without ever taking any risks themselves.

    Floyd has been saying this forever- Dana can talk all he wants but he will never understand because he's not a fighter. He has never gone in there to risk anything himself.
