    I wouldn’t go as far to say “no way in hell” does GSP-Clown Car out sell the trilogy fight with Nate, but I agree that the rubber match is the most lucrative fight out there right now.

    does anyone know of a comprehensive ppv buy site i could do some looking on? or is that one more fucking thing I need to hunt down?

    I would think that'd be bigger than the crime/fighter charts

    once i get through my current work load i'm doing one or the other. either a comprehensive ppv buy rate so these things could be compared, or a comprehensive list of crimes, convictions and mug shots.

    i need to pick one

    Conor clearly has no intention of defending his title so just strip the little leprechaun already so we can move on.

    But for 2016? i agree his numbers seem to be the most agreed upon being accurate

    just seems to be a year behind. we're in 2018 now. i don't think generating a database that's a year out of date with the best numbers is worth much

    As for Conor, with WME not caring about titles anymore they may well just not care about conor's belt.

    there are only two realistic possibilities here.

    1. they're afraid of pissing him off so they aren't stripping him
    2. they see no value in the titles

    I highly doubt it's 1. but 2 doesn't make sense either. You can't discount what they said about the titles though, so how much could they really mean?

    contrary to what everyone else seems to think, I don't think WME sees conor as more important than themselves. no 1 fighter is. and if it IS the case, they better consider selling.
