    If you understand how shit works, you'd understand that this is most likely what the UFC is planning.

    Conor will pull out the week of the fight. Why? because the fight isn't as big as it could be.

    They are using Conor pulling out as a business tactic to pull in more views for Cucuy vs Khabib.
    Think about it:
    1) Fight week... everyone excited, even the casuals are excited.
    2) Conor pulls out => HUGE media storm EVERYWHERE in every sports station
    3) Cucuy steps in to fight Khabib. They feed the casuals their backstory of how "its finally going to happen"

    It'll be somewhat like how Nate replaced RDA.

    Now Khabib vs Cucuy gets the audience they deserve and will probably pull something like 600k ppv buys.

    When they were originally scheduled to fight, there was barely any hype before Tony pulled out. (maybe that's how he got injured *ahem*) There was a bit more hype when all the ruckus happened with Conor and all that (obviously another promotional stunt).

    If Khabib does beat Cucuy, the fight with Conor down the line will be insanely massive. Khabib needs to win a big fight in a big event to gain superstardom, and that is exactly what theyre trying to do. His last event with Iaquinta drew 300k ppv buys. He's a semi-star.

    When you get superstar vs superstar, thats when your views go crazy like Mayweather vs McGregor.
    When you get superstar vs semi star, it'll just be a regular card for the superstar as he'll draw in what he usually does.

    Also... I really hope they use the rock paper scissors analogy when promoting the trio of light weights... its just too perfect.
    Rock for Conor, Scissors for Cucuy, Paper for Khabib.

    So you are saying that the UFC is secretly planning for 600k PPV when they can get 1.2M PPV? Smart.

    theyll get 600k ppv buys now with Cucuy vs Khabib.

    and get 2M ppv buys later, with Conor vs Khabib.
    or 1.2M ppv buys with Conor vs Cucuy. (these are just rough estimates obviously)

    Gotta think long term here not short term.

    they've already played that hand the other 4 times Khabib vs Fergusson fell through. The fight is going to happen unless Conor pulls a Ronda.

    I like that the UFC is putting a lot of safe guards for this. There are plenty of good replacements if Khabib or Conor pulls out.

    UFC sucks at long term thinking and sacrifices everything for immediate profits. This is why half the divisions have paper champions.
