    Chael is wrong about Adesanya vs Gastelum being the best MW fight in UFC history.

    Chael vs. Anderson 1 is the best MW fight in UFC history. The Bad Guy just being humble as usual.

    Personally I think Romero vs weidman and Romero vs Rockhold are much better mw fights then chael vs Anderson 1.

    Well, I believe the Ronda-Holly fight in Australia holds the current record so it isn't far fetched to think that two fighters from that region could sell more.

    It's possible if the fight takes place in Straya. Bobbie isn't a draw though. Probably will ends with around 200k PPV buys.

    A light heavyweight barely beating a welterweight is FOTY thus far?

    He's banking on the fact that both men are from that region and the fight happening is Australia.

    Conor vs Khabib will not break 1.5 million mark (most people like you)

    PPV comes crashing at 2.5 mil

    Bring Conor to Wembley and see what it does to the live gate record.

    Australia vs New Zealand, in Australia. It will sell out very quick, you will be surprised. Holm vs Rousey was sold out in Melbourne (56.000 seater sold out), imagine having a main event between a local world champion and an interim champion from a neighboring country

    56k isn't the biggest live gate ever

    It's sell out Etihad Stadium (56,000) in about two days. It could probably get 70,000 at the MCG if there was another big fight on the undercard.

    Chael is right.
