    In terms of money imo opinion no card could be better than a few pride cards...

    If it was

    Main. Conor Cowboy
    Co Main Bones Thiago ....... Bones might be willing to be so main as Conor mrand a lot more money.
    Amanda Holly
    Ngsnnou JDS
    Askren Masvidal

    Would this card which actually could happen (maybe unlikely but is feasible) beat the 2.6 with Conor Kabib or is Khabib really a big draw in own right an it would fall short?

    We have already covered this. Conors ego is to big to do a co main.

    Jones wouldnt co main to a manlet.

    Its a non conversation

    I think Bones would be okay with co main due to the big money boost he would get.

    That would be a pretty good card even though the Jones vs Thiago fight is just another easy win for Jones. Dont think it breaks it though since Conor vs Khabib was for a title and more anticipated than what a conor vs Cowboy would be.

    Pretty good card without Conor. Not that hyped about him fighting anytime soon with all the partying he does nowadays. He would come in worse prepared than he did for Khalabeeb

    I mean it’s already an amazing card. I can’t see jones settling to be a co main. I’d also be disappointed if it was Cerrone over Ferguson

    Didnt people say that with the ESPN deal fighters have less leverage due to ESPN giving them a fixed amount of dollars per event? So it really doesnt matter how many PPV's it sells, UFC gets the same amount of money.

    You might be correct. I forget he isnt a actual draw himself.

    I thought they got rid of PPV points with ESPN's guaranteed pay

    Quite possibly, yeah.

    I personally think they're hoping to get him booked on the 240 card, though. They're probably skipping over that one with all the other fights they're booking (like DC/Stipe II) for a reason.

    Khabib crushed conors soul and his drawing power, that's why the UFC wants him to co main against cowboy

    My guess is if he loses to cowboy, he'll be dropped to the prelims

    Did they actually get rid of paying fighters ppv points?

    Or did they just lower the threshold considering it is still a ppv. Its just behind 2 paywalls.....

    If Conor was capable of adding to 239 his fans would pay for it. It wouldn't matter if he used an abacus, calculator or just some beans.

    It wouldn't beat Khabib vs Conor as Conor's losing some shine and Khabib is becoming a draw on his own.

    Btw

    Ufc 239 also has
    Blachowicz vs Rockhold
    Chiesa vs Diego
    O'Malley vs Vera

    If Cowboy vs Conor was added it would be an insanely stacked card.
