    I think yes, no matter who wins conor vs khabib.

    UFC in a winning spot here financially.

    What happens if GSP wins? Another belt vacated? UFC needs to stop thinking short term and think long term... But that won't happen anytime soon.

    GSP vs Conor is because they are both popular , GSP vs Khabib is big but not as big as GSP Conor

    GSP vs Conor is the biggest possible fight in MMA today.

    And it has been for the past 2 years plus.

    Even if Conor loses to Khabib, Conor/Nate 3 would do more PPV's than GSP/Khabib.

    sad but true.

    Conor vs. Brimage 2 would be a bigger fight than Khabib / GSP

    St Pierre fighting for his third division belt is a sell... Add. Fighting Mcgregor which would be huge. I would pay $65 for it...

    Yes.

    Conor is the big name. GSP either fights Conor, or the guy who is undefeated and just beat Conor

    I think the UFC is way beyond caring about upholding the sanctity of the belts at this point.

    GSP did over 850k ppvs sales for his return after 4 years off. GSP vs Conor would do huge numbers.

    I'm sure the UFC wouldn't exactly frown at a GSP-McGregor fight.

    GSP vs Conor is next for GSP. Whether it’s for the LW belt or a battle between two 2 division champs without a belt in play.
