    Just took a look on Ticketmaster and it appears 35-40% seats are still unsold with only 12 days left till the event.

    Has McGregor lost his aura? Is it safe to conclude he is no longer a draw? Or have the fans finally had enough with the USADA Fighting Championship?

    Everyone said UFC 200 did disappointing numbers... I'm calling it now, UFC 202 will do MUCH LESS gate and PPV numbers than UFC 200.

    I think the UFC is heading back into the dark ages folks.

    They know this is a squash match. Why pay thousands when you already know the result?

    Looks like Connies 15 minutes of fame are almost up lads.


    Maybe if N8 didn't EMASCULATE him the way he did, Connie would've mustered up some courage to at least smack talk a bit to sell the fight.

    No sign of Connie anywhere other than timid interviews giving weak excuses...

    Let's see what the new owners can do to save it. Maybe kill TUF and bring back Pride Grand Prix?

    Been a busy summer for the Irish, travelling for the Euros & the olympics. I think the PPVs will still sell.

    This is fairly obvious. I haven't seen anyone talk about Conor outside of Sherdog since March.

    Barely make a million. And after Diaz he will be lucky to rake in 800k.

    The UFC killed momentum for the fight when they pulled Conor off UFC 200.

    It's not a coincidence he's suddenly having a twitter shitfest with pro-wrestling fans. Fans who happen to be active PPV buyers.

    He's sweating. He knows he lost momentum and this is his last chance to reclaim it.

    Lol when conor is talking trash you hate on him bc he never shuts up. When he decides to focus on his training you hate on him for not being in the spot light. I can't believe you let a man you don't even know make you this salty.

    That actually sounds about right. Even around here the buzz hasn't been very strong. Conor threads are way way down for it being less than 2 weeks until he fights.
