    Guaranteed that in today's time GSP vs Anderson doesn't break 700k buys

    The big money fight to make is Conor vs. GSP

    Why on Earth would they make another Gsp fight and risk GSP losing before fighting Conor?

    Let Gsp sit and wait for Conor

    If Conor dominates Khabib then Conor vs Gsp becomes a 3million PPV fight

    Im glad Gsp is refusing an Anderson fight. It serves no purpose to Gsp and is only there to benefit Anderson. Could it be a UFC desperation ploy to redeem Anderson?

    Conor vs Gsp is The real fight,

    And even though that fight only serves and benefits Conor greatly if Conor wins, it still serves a great financial purpose to Gsp...it's the biggest money fight possible...and Gsp only wants big money

    Anderson is long gone and does ZERO business right now....Gsp vs Anderson is no longer relevant, and is not a big money fight at all....GTFO please lol !


    Conor vs Gsp is what the people want.

    This fight at best should be opening bout for the main card. If it gets made.

    Zero interest from me

    Maybe, but 700k isn't bad.

    Get the tin hats, but I think UFC is just attempting to undermine GSP's attempts to get into a 155 title fight with these rumors.

    Every GSP fight is a big money fight.
    Less than Conor and Lesnar money but more than ANYONE else.

    Conor-GSP will get them just Conor money.
    Conor-Khabib abd GSP-Anderson will give them BOTH Conor money and GSP money

    Dude, can you EVER start a thread or post without fellating Conor?

    Guy hasn't fought in MMA since 2016, and you just keep starting thread after thread worshiping him.

    It's border-lining creepy.

    Whitaker or Woodley would have been legit, from a purist standpoint.

    I agree. It doesn’t have the same impact now. I’m not even that interested in it to be honest. I’d still watch but it’s one of those matches where I’d prefer to see both fight other people.

    GSP vs Anderson would still be a really fun fight Imo, it would be kind of like a Bellator style legend fight but at the highest calibre on the biggest stage. Just having them both in the octagon at the same time would be a sight to see, and there styles right now could produce a good fight.

    Conor won't fight GSP. Hell Conor won't even fight Khabib, you think he is going to sign up against a bigger, more complete fighter with wrestling who also happens to the be the WW GOAT?

    Anderson VS GSP, This fight should happen so MMA fans can get the answer they been debating for years, who would win between the two.

    & it doesn't have to be one or the other, both GSP VS Anderson and GSP VS Conor can be pursued by the UFC. But the fight that came first and still has yet to happen is GSP VS Anderson. The UFC should tell GSP they will try to make Conor VS GSP after he fights Anderson, that way everyone is happy.

    There's been many fights bigger then Gsp's fights

    Every Gsp fight is not "big money"

    "Gsp money" is not even top 5 in the rankings

    When you say a Conor fight "only" gives them Conor money, I don't get that considering "Conor money" is the MOST money you can possibly ever see made in the UFC by far and large

    Conor holds all the gate records and holds 3 of 5 of the highest selling PPVs of all time

    Conor vs Khabib and Conor vs Gsp combined makes 1000x as much money as any combination with Gsp vs Anderson

    Why do Conor vs Khabib, and limit it to Anderson vs Gsp, when you can do Conor vs Gsp after Conor beats Khabib and make 100000x the amount

    Gsp vs Anderson wouldn't be worthy to be on Conor's undergrad and would have a negligent effect at best

    Which GSP fight wasn't "big money"? Compared to the rest of the roster?
    And what are your "rankings"? Please do share.
    He's #3 draw in the UFC now, whether you like it or not

    Regardless of how you personally feel, the Gsp vs Anderson ship has already long sailed for casuals

    No one cares about Anderson anymore, and certainly not about Anderson vs Gsp lol. Its such a ridiculous bone headed fight to make. It's far worse then when PRIDE abruptly made Wanderlie vs Cro Cop before Wanderlie was supposed to come into the UFC and fight Liddell.

    Because of that bone headed move by PRIDE, Wanderlie got viciously knocked out by Cro Cop which ended his prime, and effecfively delayed the fight with Liddell for years until it was no longer relevant

    In the case of Gsp you want Gsp to not lose and to sit out until Conor is done with Khabib and ready to fight Gsp

    It would be much better for everyone involved if Conor was the one to beat Gsp

    For one Gsp vs Bisping made no where near any top amounts

    You are also grossly missing the point

    Conor vs Khabib + Anderson vs Gsp

    DOES NOT even come close to making a fraction of the money that Conor vs Khabib + Conor vs Gsp would

    So your statement was weird

    "Conor money" is the MOST money possible

    Why RISK a 3million PPV Conor fight, just to do a likely 700k fight with Anderson vs Gsp that only is there to appease Anderson.

    Absolutely terrible business
