    If this event does more than 150K buys it will entirely be becaue of the draw the UFC has as the premier
    MMA organization in the world.

    If it does less than 150k buys it will expose the fact that the super stars of the UFC are the main draw.

    MMA fighting reported 654k buys for Khabib vs Gaethje and yes that card was better but still for them to outdraw the very next UFC by 4x and probably more than that when you factor in international viewers shows us that the top drawers of the UFC are criminally underpaid.

    Not really. There is no law that guarantees workers a fixed percentage of revenue. Market forces determine prices unless there are multiple major MMA organizations competing for fighters nothing will change until a union is formed

    151K: The Goof is brilliant.
    149K: The Goof was never your friend.

    fighter pay had nothing to do with who was set up on ufc 255. you see what some of the lesser known bellator fighters make. that criminally underpaid.

    An even better metric would be to see what kind of a draw Khabib would be in Bellator or One.
