    McGregor KOs the guy in a single round but gets main event status while the better fight (Ben-Alvarez) gets 3 rounds.

    As already said, it's marketing. Even when Bendo was a champion people didn't like him. People love Connor and the UFC is banking on it. Also with Dana saying that if he wins he'll get Aldo potentially it's the last chance to test his gas tank if need be before the big fight. I agree with you though, I'd much rather see a 5 round fight between two proven dominant fighters than a marketable up and comer.

    If he moves the needle he moves the needle why can't he do it as co-main

    Uh yeah, two guys coming off losses with no chance of a title shot should be main event over one of the UFC's biggest stars on the verge of a title shot? Nice logic there.
