    Pettis vs Aldo would be the biggest fight of the year is the correct response.

    If that's all they have this year, I'm not impressed.

    Aldo vs Pettis would be bigger.

    Jones vs Cormier was bigger than either of those.

    And Anderson vs Diaz will probably be bigger than that.

    PPV numbers, forum buzz, ticket sales, idk what metric we use, but that is just typical Danaperbole

    No, not it would not. No fight involving Aldo would be and you're on crack if you think otherwise.


    Depending on the performance of the winner, Jones vs. Gustafsson/Johnson will be the biggest fight of the year, barring a GSP comeback.

    Dana is trying to bail on his established fighters because they are on a decline in revenue and push someone new

    Not a Conor fan but this is very possible.

    Just like Ronda he has alot of casuals as fans. Die hards buy anyway, casuals drive the sales variable.

    Aldo vs McGregor could make better numbers than Jones vs Cormier. I don`t know about Silva vs Diaz, but it`s not exactly fair since Anderson has been a top star since 2006, and he is the most exciting fighter ever.

    That aside, I believe Aldo vs McGregor could be huge in terms of PPV, much more than Jones vs Cormier, and Aldo vs Pettis would be the biggest fight period (of the year).

    NOPE, McGregor vs Pettis WILL be the biggest fight of the year once Conor is done whooping Aldo, Pettis is done whooping RDA, and Pettis recovers from some inevitable injury.
