    Not even that far. Just tell them to have some personality. Too many are worries about what either other people think or just care so little they only focus on the fight instead of selling it. They need to realize they are not just selling the fight for the UFC, they are marketing themselves as well.

    How is it WWE? Conor goes in there and beats the fuck out of Siver's face. Do you want to step in the Octagon and see if your face gets bashed in? It's WWE alright. Step in there, buddy.

    Conor is good for the sport. If he can reign as champ he's the next Liddell or Lesnar. Aldo V McGregor will do close to a mil if they fill it up and I believe they will.

    The UFC couldn't afford 50 commercials in every big football game. They'd never get that return back. Ad's on Playoff games are probably close to 1 million for a 30 second spot.

    They've had more commercials in football games for this fight than any other. I think they even had Conor on one of the broadcasts?

    UFC got promotion from Fox that you literally can't buy. Fox wanted Conor on this show and they promoted it as much as they can so he could draw this rating.

    I take it they mean record for a UFC event on FS1? Certainly a 1.7 isn't the overall record for FS1. If it is, that's kinda pathetic.

    Anyways, they promoted the shit out of McGregor. No surprise.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure. The ratings for FS1 suck ass tho. Its not a channel people watch. That's a big part of why the UFC is on the channel and why the UFC has struggled.

    A black guy who works in the office next to me is a huge boxing fan. He has never cared for MMA whatsoever but he has been talking about the Conor fight all night long.

    Conor is definitely bringing people over.

    Highest numbers for the worst card this year

    Still don't think it would do over a million buys.

    FOX can tank the GOAT. Conor has blessed the channel with record breaking numbers.
