    This. I don't know what this is meant to prove, if you did the same stats during Conor fight week, suprisingly they'd be higher than right now aswell.

    1,000,000 buys for UFC 246 pre-pandemic

    675,000 buys for UFC 254 in pandemic

    Adesanya did better numbers than Khabib. All the Russians searched up the event after they heard Khabib retired

    Khabib does not sell like Conor does. People love the spectacle and the striking. Khabib is obviously a better fighter, and despite being a bit of a fanatic, a better person.

    Those PPV numbers are guesstimates by some third party media. They're not accurate.
    The UFC don't release official PPV numbers anymore, don't they?

    Also, it's very doubtful that Adesanya is anywhere close to Khabib in terms of popularity: Google and Youtube traffic Trends:

    Most people casuals living in that time zone don't care about Khabib...

    Conor vs. Khabib 2 would be bigger than their first fight imo. Not likely to happen now though.

    UFC 246 = 100
    UFC 254 = 85

    I guess that's why you decided to use the Conor vs Khabib search instead lol. It's not like one guy retired from MMA or anything right? That wouldn't create a mass search.

    UFC 246 heavily dominates the regions where PPV is most bought. Hence why UFC 254 did 675,000 buys compared to UFC 246.

    upload_2020-10-29_13-24-29.png

    72% of USA searches were for UFC 246, while only 28% were for 254

    Also Web search leads to more PPV buys because the first few things that typically pop up is the ESPN ppv. Youtube search is people looking for the full fight for free

    That a 2pm est main card start time sold 500k+ is amazing, but you're an agenda poster.

    Just remember, no matter what happens, what you say, or what you dream about in your fantasies- Khabib is 29-0, went out on top, and obliterated Conor.

    A 2 Pm EST card that, according to Dana White, was "trending to be the biggest event of all time". It failed to out-sell UFC 253 and was more on par with Stipe vs DC 3 (500k buys).

    And no, it's not amazing at all if the "agenda" of this thread was to push the narrative that Khabib is on par with Conor McGregor or even has surpassed Conor McGregor in this field. Maybe you can't comprehend that, and judging by any interactions I've ever had with you, I would not be surprised at all.

    16 grey names... Don’t use a record like that as an example when he only has 4 top 5 wins. Compare that to GSPs 19 top 5 wins in a higher weight class against better competition, and only 1 grey name on his record. Khabibs best win is Poirier or Coked Mcgregor Coming off a boxing match that made him filthy rich...
