    -I've seen a lots of mixed threads here about whether or not UFC 229 Conor vs Khabib will actually REALLY be the biggest fight in UFC history (PPV sales wise).
    -I've even seen a couple threads where people doubt that UFC 229 at MSG Conor vs Khabib will make more money than DIAZ VS MCGREGOR 2 with $1,600,000 buys.

    -I've surprisingly seen many feel it dont even break 1 million buys...(which I dont share that opinion)

    My question to you Sherdog, is ...if you were promoter, what GREAT CO-MAIN would you add to UFC 229 to possibly push that needle to make sure it breaks 1 million buys or even break the record of 1,600,000?

    My pick....add Cris Cyborg vs Amanda Nunes as CO-MAIN event.


    What do you say?

    Tough because the UFC is lacking Stars and been lacking them for years now.. And 8 weeks is short.. Just move Diaz/Dustin to Oct..

    Conor needs to hope his off time hasn't killed his hype.

    MMA isn't exactly Hollywood and he hasn't been very active elsewhere

    I personally think DIAZ VS DUSTIN should be on that card as co-main simply for the fact IF either Khabib or Conor gets hurt/sick they can easily have a fill in with either of those 2. If Conor pulls out for whatever reason Dustin can go get his shot at the belt. If Khabib gets sick/hurt which can happen Diaz can fill in to make Conor vs Diaz trilogy.

    I predict 1.5 million buys. Won't do as good as Connor and Nate.

    they make between 15-30 million each

    no the rest of the main card I out a lot of trash on it cause everyone is buying conor vs khabib so no need to have 4 title fights and gsp vs anyone on it.

    if it was me I have the 229 main card full of trash match ups since everyone is buying conor vs khabib most of all. so no need to have 3 title fights on it.

    It will break the record no matter the card.

    Hopefully they stack it anyway.

    Don't think it will sell more than the second Diaz fight. Probably around 1.3m in my opinion. But, I also wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't even break 1m buys.
