    What are the first fight(s) you show someone who is new to the sport?

    I usually show Edgar/Maynard 2 & 3, Lawler/MacDonald 2, & Diaz/McGregor (great upset & post fight trash talk from Nate).

    Just pop on anything with McGregor in it. He's box office, even when he loses.

    That last Phil Davis vs Bader.

    That way they'll never waste money on a PPV.

    1. Tell them this won't take long with Nick Diaz vs Paul Daley
    2. Have them take a seat with Jones vs Gus
    3. Show them what heart means with Darren Elkins vs Mirsad Bektic

    This.

    If they don't like that fight, then there's a good chance they won't become a real fan.

    Definitely got it right with Frankie/Edgar 2 and 3.
    For a fun grappling oriented fight maybe Hioki/Oliviera.

    Dan Kelly fights. Give them a taste of the top of the pyramid before unveiling how it is achieved.
