    Same reason why the history channel went from showing actual history documentaries to Pawn Stars

    Khabib vs Dustin was seen by 26 million in Russia alone. I imagine this fight had equal numbers there also. So, no I doubt it.

    The circus fight in Conor-Cerrone was seen by Canadians, Argentines, Americans, Brazilians, Australians, and the British. Those in total trump Russian viewers by a large margin.

    UFC 254 aired at like noon. If it aired live in the regular time slot in North America it would have gotten better numbers.

    So can someone actually post a link with the numbers instead of just saying it's true?

    The Khabib vs Justin fight was on at prime time for Russia, the middle east, and large parts of Europe. I'd honestly be surprised if Conor vs Cerrone did better numbers. Maybe in the UK, Canada, and US it did, but overall? I really doubt it

    Drama? Conor and cowboy were very respectful to eachother. Facts are Mcgregor is more exciting and a bigger name than Khabib. Cowboy is more well known then Gaethje aswell(no matter what Sherdog says), The Khabib novelty has worn off And he’s just a mid level draw. Not bad but not Mcgregor.

    The reason why Conor McGregor is Infinite times more popular and respected than any other fighter will ever be is because he fights anyone at anytime at anyweight.

    Nobody wants to watch a man taking a dive for a other mans crotch.
