    In my country it was perfect , Khabib vs Dustin , Khabin vs Gaethje , Holloway vs Kattar all starting at around 9 pm , now everywhere i read it says that it's starting at 4:00 am , like events in Las Vegas , why ?

    Because a real PPV draw is headlining.

    Its a Conor fight. Dana doesnt give af about being fair to the rest of the world for these fights. This is a cash grab for him and the united states pays the most.

    I know I just assumed it would be at the same time as other Abu Dhabi events only found out an hour ago it's not.

    Got to maximise the ppv buys from Americans for McGregor though.

    The biggest draw in the sport fighting on a PPV in the afternoon in America is bad business.

    Americans are idiots for Conor. That's why.
