Well it is good that it has been announced but I’ll be hyped when they are both in the cage. Been cock teased too many times with this one.

At this point if the UFC wants these awesome fights they WILL have to pay.

They are too big for themselves now not to.

This side of MMA/Combat has always intrigued me. How the promoter balances reward with keeping fighters hungry enough to continue fighting. 
 

Pay them too much and they could retire early, pay them too little and receive a public backlash. 
 

I imagine it’s a very delicate and frustrating process for both sides.

We don't really know for sure if he got paid. Could be exactly what FRB said. Got pressured into taking a shit deal.

I tend to believe the reason Dana wanted to meet in person was because they were planning to pay Tony well.

5 months is a long time time and one of them is bound to get injured by then. This is should of been signed and booked immediately.

wish it were in Vegas. NY commission is too risky. hopefully no weight cutting issues happen.

Yeah, it really makes no sense as to why this fight is being scheduled for April. Just enough time for Conor to come save the day in case one of them gets hurt.

Won't happen. I've lost faith in this fight, especially when they have 5 months to have it fuck up.

My thoughts exactly. 50/50 chance this fight happens IMO.

Cowboy beats Conor and then Tony pulls out of the fight two weeks out and Cowboys steps in and kicks Kabibs head off and wins the title!

Too good to be true.  Something will prevent this.

Almost 5 months away, that’s too much time

i wonder what the betting odds are in the fight not happening and why (tony or khabib pulls out, what kind of injury, etc)

Good deal. It’s a long time to wait though...

Maybe enough time for Tony to put up some vlogs on youtube or something like Jorge Masvidal. #wishfulthinking
