The was one step above the WWE. I wouldn't be surprise to see McGregor go there next.

Not if he wants to make the kind of money he made last night.

Insane amounts of money....$100M for one fight, or the same as what Ben made on his second contract over 5 years. Or $350M for one fight, or $750M for your last 3 fights...or about almost what Lebron and Tiger made in their entire career, including endorsements.

For a sport that has largely nosedived in popularity, there's still a huge appetite for the marquee events. I think the key is rarirty - you get a mega-fight only about every 3 years or so, and it's an match-up you'll probably never see again. That PPV grossed about as much as the last SB - think about that one (Roger definitely is).


Yet, the premise of that fight bordered on absurd, almost as bad of a mismatch as Michael Phelps vs. a shark.
