It's been over three months now, and the dust has still not settled on the aftermath of Conor McGregor's bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.
The Eagle scored a convincing submission win over the Notorious, but Khabib's brawl with McGregor's training partner Dillon Danis outside the Octagon made bigger headlines.
And then of course McGregor was attacked from behind by two of Khabib's assailants whilst still inside the cage.
The incident forced Nevada State Athletic Commission to put temporary suspensions on both fighters, but being deemed the aggressor saw Khabib have half of his $2 million purse for the fight held back.
A hearing was supposed to take place in December before NSAC, but it was postponed yet again until January 29, to give Khabib's team a chance to reach a settlement.
Even if fans think Conor doesn't deserve another shot at Khabib's Lightweight title, or think Tony Ferguson deserves it more, you'd be foolish not to think that the rematch is the absolute money fight that the promotion can make.
Khabib's coach Javier Mendez agrees with this, and thinks the boat should be pushed out when it comes to the arena they fight in, and it's far, far bigger than a fight in Vegas would be.
“We don’t know with Conor, he’s so rich with his Proper 12. I hear it’s doing fantastic. He’s got a great image, bro. He appears to be a helluva businessman,” Mendez told the Off the Brawl MMA show, per MMAMania.
“Now’s the time to strike while the iron is hot, I say Cowboys Stadium. That would do the pay-per-view numbers; that would do everything. I think now is the time to consider doing something like that.
“It would be the right place for a stadium show. Vegas would be the right place if they built the Raiders stadium in time, but that won’t be built in time.”
The Dallas Cowboys stadium just so happens to be able to hold upto 105,000 people, which would break UFC records and then some.
WrestleMania 32 was able to host just over 101,000 people so there's no reason why Khabib-Conor 2 can't draw something within that number.
And if it did happen, it may just be one of the biggest fights to ever occur in combat sports history.News Now - Sport News
