Equally not sure who else he would fight. Outside of the same punchers KO chance that McGregor or Justin had, I can't see Tony offering anything fresh and him going the same way as Porier....and he doesn't even have that same chance those first two had either.

Tony makes the most sense though.

Charles Oliveira would make a good scrap too I feel but ranking might be a bit far out.
I'm not a huge Khabib fan but he ran through McGregor and Justin, at least Tony is a fresh match up.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Khabib isn’t fighting again. And if it’s just a story spun by Ali so he retains the title until after Conor v Dustin. Then conveniently vacates before Justin’s next fight.

Why ? McGregor has retired 97 times.

Well that was on twitter, not in the middle of the octagon after defending his title and leaving his gear behind.

I'd guess that about 90% of fighters who retire for non-medical reasons go on to fight again.

UFC 254 ended up doing 675k buys.

5th Highest of 2020

So much for Dana "the Truth" White saying it was trending to smash the record

Sure the embedded only averaged about 1.5m views, similar to the previous few PPV cards.

Well to be fair the time it was on at likely had a huge affect on sales.
It means less fights at times like that moving forward sadly is my guess.

675k is poor.
I think it may even have been on normal sports channels in Russia & people streaming for free too of course.

On top of that the PPV prices outside of America are less. We were €30, UK was £20 & I’m guessing other countries are similar. The US price was $65. So even any extra European buys is coming at a big hit per buy as well.
