    If you were around leading up to the fight between Fedor and Crocop, compare the two.

    Conor made in 1 fight more then Fedor ever will.

    Conor had more people pay to see him in 1 fight then have paid to see Fedor in a lifetime.

    The buzz among hardcores was huge for Fedor vs Crocop but the buzz for MMA in general is bigger now than it ever used to be. Conor is a global star neither Fedor nor Crocop ever were.

    Cro Cop vs Fedor is and prob always will be the biggest fight in MMA. I don’t see Connor and Khabib passing that.

    In absolutely no way is CC v Fedor the biggest fight in MMA history. Not by skill. Not by viewership. Not by $. By every conceivable metric there have been about a dozen fights “bigger” than CC v Fedor.

    Conor/Khabib will get a lot of casual MMA fans interested, and that's arguably much more valuable. Fedor/Cro Cop had hardcore fans salivating. No fight will likely ever have the buildup and mystique to Fedor/Mirko, but Conor/Khabib will be a giant mainstream spectacle.

    IMO the only fight that could have surpassed Fedor/Cro Cop was if Prime Chuck and Wandy fought.in the finals of the MWGP

    You could have an argument for most skilled, but it was definitely not the most viewed nor lucrative fight ever. Conor/Khabib will easily surpass it on those two categories.
