    I say Dana White vs. Joe Rogan .

    Having them as the main event would break all known PPV stats.

    What do you say , any other fight not likely to happen but potentially record breaking ?

    GSP vs Conor

    Lesnar vs Jones

    Those are the current two fights I could see breaking 2mill PPV buys.

    Probably McGregory vs Mayweather under UFC rules. Even though that matchup doesn't interest me at all, it would probably be pretty recordbreaking.
    Maybe McGregory vs Khabib would do good as well.

    a huge falling out between Nick and Nate that divides Stockton that results in an Octagon meeting.

    Conor vs GSP

    Conor vs Woodley

    Conor vs Khabib

    Top 3 fights that could break the record imo

    Khabib beats Conor and steals his shine, THEN GSP v. Khabib in Russia’s biggest stadium, marketed as Canada v. Russia, in the tradition of the two countries’ hockey rivalry.

    Conor vs GSP, probably.

    The other two, Conor would have to carry the PPV all by himself as neither of the opponents are draws, so that's probably not gonna break records.

    More interesting to me is if any current fight would be able to do the biggest ppv numbers ever and NOT have Conor in it.

    Why? Fox was beat by Ashlee Evans-Smith. She would literally get destroyed by Rousey.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again,

    Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley would be the highest selling PPV ever.

    Throw in Conor vs Nate 3 and it is a record that will never be beaten.

    Good fights don’t sell big PPV numbers. Fights that appeal to the mass casual audience (the ones who actually pay) sell big.

    Maybe 5 years ago when fans still bought PPV. Nowadays you need mass casual appeal to break PPV records and the casuals give 0 fucks about Woodley, Khabib and GSP.

    What about Sensei Segal vs 8 guys who attack one at a time but only when he is facing them?

    Yep. Conor vs GSP or Conor vs Mayweather (mma). The latter being the biggest.

    No way with Jones vs Lesnar
