    Rightfully so if true...

    He's the fucking champ! He deserves to get paid accordingly!

    Khabib is duck. Dana should strip him so Khabib could have rematch with Horcher or fight Teemu Packalen. Khabib doesn't like challenges he likes to humancarpet guys outside top 10

    Should MM get $10m too then? You get paid according to what you can draw, Khabib is not a $10m draw, not even close.

    He'll have enough to buy Dagestan..

    He said he doesn't fight for money but Ali is his manager and that's a slippery one

    He gets a PPV cut anyway.

    The UFC will try to trick Khabib into $10 million to show and reduced PPV cut.

    he beat an unranked fighter to become the fucking champ. 10m is not "accordingly."
    and that's not even mentioning his reliability issues.

    What he should have said is "I'll fight him for 5 million. But when I beat him, and you assholes want to give him an immediate [and undeserved] rematch, I will not do it for less than 25 million. I want the contingency for the second fight in the contract for the first."

    Dana is a shitty promoter, but he's a gambler. I think he'd take the bet. I see the potential fight as 50/50, and I do not think Khabib gets a rematch if he loses without working his way back. I also think with a win, Connor angles for Georges and looks to either build a trilogy of money fights or retires.

    Interim belt for Poirier seems like the easy solution to this. UFC fighters should know by now that they don't own a belt

    He beat a top 15 guy after the Champion, Interim Champion and FW Champion all didn't turn up. He can only fight who's put infront of him.
