    This should be pretty unanimous, but let's see what you think. Like the title says...

    Number one is pretty obviously Conor... who do you have after that?

    Conor
    Khabib
    Jones
    Nate
    Jorge

    Thoughts? Who you got?

    If DC comes back he might move the needle. Nate is a massive draw but if he fought more he would be exposed more and wouldn't be QUICKLY. Mas I can see moving up quickly

    Based purely on name, Conor is #1. Then probably Jones next. But beyond that..... maybe Nate. Khabib I don't think is that big of a draw on his own. At least not before the Conor fight. (Unless we're talking the muslim fans)

    If Brock and Ronda were still fighting, then them too. And GSP.

    Otherwise....I can't think of that many legit BIG names currently on the roster. Very, very few.

    I don't know who needs to hear this, but Ronda was never as big of a draw as the UFC made her out to be.

    I don't think Khabib's headlined a big event, other than the fight with Conor. I'm not sure I'd call him the consensus #2.

    There's really no one other than Conor that's a huge draw on their own (with Brock and GSP retired).

    Conor 2.0 sells more PPVs than the rest of the roster combined

    Conor

    Not sure who independently pulls the next most that's currently in the UFC, I think Nate has only had big numbers when he fought Conor.

    Jones should not be on that list. None of the bars that used to show PPVs in Portland bothered to buy last weekend's fight. That says a lot.
