khabib will miss weight on purpose. Would be the smart move.

    Let me play Mystic Mac for you right now.

    1.) khabib will start negotiations and hold out for 7 mil.

    2.) ufc will whittle it down to 5 mil. Fight will be signed.

    3.) khabib will come in overweight on purpose, thus making the title ineligible, and khabib still makes 4 million. (20% purse)

    Explain to me why khabib wouldn't do this?

    He will.

    Why doesn't Floyd do it every fight?

    UPDATE: The guy is a troll. Ignore this thread.

    That's a big risk to take if Conor refuses the fight, Khabib gets stripped and walks away with nothing.

    Explain to me why UFC wouldn't strip the belt from Khabib anyway and give it to Conor in case Conor beats him? They would.

    because it's a huge risk, no way he'd ever do it. He could easily be stripped. By missing weight he'd be giving the UFC the upper hand over him

    @elbowsandwiches ignored my response, because he's an obvious troll and this thread is a clickbait.

    Don't feed this thing.

    No, there were precedents, where championship belt would be vacated by the champ, who missed weight. Only the challenger, who made weight is eligible to win. If former champ wins - title is vacated

    Why would you think Conor would refuse?

    Different sport? Different contracts?..... because after so many times you would eventually get stripped?

    Wrong. You've misunderstood the protocol. If the challenger misses weight the title is off the line. If the champion misses weight then he loses the title regardless of the result, and the challenger is elibigle to win.

    Now, this is at the UFC's discretion, so they could keep it on Khabib if they really wanted to.

    Since when has UFC cared about the "rules" when there is a ton of money to be made by bending them?

    So? People are people in any sport. You assume that would be a smart move for Khabib, why wouldn't it be the same for Floyd?

    Conor would still fight for the belt if Khabib didn't make weight, it wasn't Conor that failed to make weight, that's what happens with interims anyways so can't see why this wouldn't apply here.
