    I am not talking best fighters, but stars, for the casuals as well.

    Conor and Ronda are out.

    So its Khabib and Jones. Others?

    Lesnar for sure. I'd argue Silva was a star too.

    As for the current era of the UFC, the stars/major draws that are still 'active' are: Conor, Khabib, Jones, Adesanya (he's become significantly more popular recently), Diaz, and Masvidal.

    Askren, Nunes, DC, Tony, and Holloway are minor draws imo. There's probably more I'm forgetting.

    They have fighters.

    They are a MMA organisation not a Galaxy.

    Conor is not out. He fights early 2020. Conor and Jones are only stars at this point and Costa, Israel, Walker and Covington are rising stars.

    Brock Lesnar was a real Star, not Silva.

    Goat Lesnar was at least 5 Million times more popular.

    Conor >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Khabib >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> rest

    The UFC itself is more popular than its fighters. The UFC is the star. Remember when one of the fertitta guys said something along the lines of, people don’t pay to watch fighters they pay to watch the UFC production.

    The average joe has no idea who these guys are.

    A star is someone you know even if you're not a fan of the sport he/she practices... Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Tom Brady, Tiger Woods, Serena Williams, Mike Tyson, etc.
