    Jones vs Ngannou?

    Izzy won't fight usman. usman won't fight khabib. Khabib won't fight anyone. GSP wants Khabib.


    GSP vs Khabib?

    PPV buys? It's probably Jake Paul vs Dana white. That would do 10 million buys

    Are we talking "big" in terms of PPV buys? The biggest fight (with respect to active MMA fighters) probably still involves Conor unfortunately...

    From a competition standpoint, Jones/Francis is the fight. Nothing is more intriguing than that for me. Usman/Izzy is close. Usman/Khabib would certainly be up there, but I'm going off the basis that Khabib is retired from fighting.

    Khamzat vs Izzy or Khamzat vs Usman..

    Basically any title fight the GOAT is involved in.

    In terms of PPV, its most likely still Conor vs Khabib.

    Unfortunately the biggest fight in terms of gaining viewers would be some kind of stupid celebrity fight.

    Think Donald Trump vs Joe Biden

    Or Elon musk vs Jeff bezos

    But if you're talking about more realistic possibilities then Jones vs Ngannou, or GSP vs Conor.

    I'd rather see GSP vs Khabib but of course Conor would draw more viewers.

    GSP vs Khabib would do monstrous numbers, however both are retired.

    Aside from that, I think Jones/Francis is the fight to make.

    Conor vs Jake Paul could probably be the biggest PPV of all time. The money fight era will go into overdrive.

    If Conor beats Dustin in July then it's Conor vs Khabib 2.
