And how long till GSP hits that beautiful double leg and drops Khabib on his back. I have no problem with GSP jumping the line the man has paid his dues, it’s a big win for ufc and the fans and tony can get some step aside money praise god

Lol at people hyped for this fight. I am a die hard GSP fan, always have been. Like fan boy. But this fight sucks. GSP is far past his prime. Khabib shills praying for it to continue Khabibs facade clout. Smh @ him calling out an old, past his prime GSP. The Khabib fake train continues.

As much as I want to see GSP vs khabib, I really just want them to do the Tony fight and get it over with, that’s the fight that needs to happen first.

No. Probably well over a million but neither are at the level Conor is at.

At the level Conor was at.. I would say GSP and conor are equal these days.. I think Diaz vs mas will be a hide ratings, but UFC will hide that info

Randoms tune in to see the best and they all know its not conor.

GSP should stay retired if he has no intention of truly contending. This is nothing more than a fighter desperate for cash, who needs to re-up on his finances. Khabib is wasting everyone’s time taking this pointless fight. He’s afraid of Tony Ferguson, and delaying the inevitable seems to be the strategy in his camp. Fighting GSP is a waste of time for the entire division. GSP hasn’t beat ANYBODY at 155lb, and he won’t defend against ANYBODY if he wins. There is no reason for this fight. It makes zero sense. Khabib can take all the super fights he wants after Tony kicks his ass. GSP hasn’t beat ANY of the top guys at 170lb. He’s living off accomplishments from 10 years ago. Nobody he fought is relevant in the division anymore. Want to make an impression? Come beat a Woodley or a Wonderboy.. come fight Colby or RDA. Fight Cowboy at 170, Vicente Luque, or Mike Perry! He won’t fight ANYBODY at 170lb because he’s no longer a fighter, just an opportunist vulture who targets low risk fights to snatch easy money and delay divisions. He has no intention of defending, why would he be fighting for a belt?

He deserves that right, he is arguably the GOAT and with that comes special privileges.

You guys all blame Khabib for doing the same thing all of the champs are doing. Chasing high profile money fights that will build his rep as GOAT.

 

Khabib was more than willing to fight Tony when he was an up and comer, but now he has the clout to ask for a bigger fight.

 

Look back to when Tony had the chance to avenge his loss to Micheal Johnson but backed out, or when he wouldn't fight Holloway and took Cowboy instead.

 

Look back to when GSP fought Bisping but wouldn't fight Woodley.

 

This is the nature of the game now.

GSP is not a big fight. It’s a weak fight. Popularity doesn’t make it a big fight. GSP is past his prime. It’s a stupid fight, Khabib is just looking for easy fights as usual to pad his record.

Could GSP even make 155?

 

I never hear this brought up in regards to this fight, but it seems like a stretch that a career WW and one-time MW who's now older and retired could drop 30lbs and still be in peak shape.

Nobody’s breaking PPV records except possibly Mcgregor. 

GSP is a star but not Mcgregors level by any stretch.

doubt it will break Conor-Khabib. How many fans who started watching in the last 5 years know who GSP is?

Doesn't break PPV numbers but there will be the most viewers ever IMO.

PPV is dying but every platform would be on fire for GSP vs Krhabib

GSP used to do 350 just in Canada. I bet if he came back against Khabib it would do that much again. 500 if he fought Conor. That’s the fight that would break records (of the 2). 

I they don’t want to mess up the title have the fight be at 160 or 165. Then win or lose Khabib has his 155. Fighting for the title doesn’t make much difference at this stage (in terms of PPV buys). The casual fans will think its for the title anyway.
