    Also, don't discount the fact that Conor would promote this fight.......he will be talking about it for sure, looking for the route to Diaz 3 and making Diaz as big a star as he can to maximise a potential 3rd fight.

He won't be the megadraw that a Conor or Ronda or Brock could be.......but I'd be surprised if he didn't appeal to the real fight fan and sell between 800k-1million PPV buys, depending who he fights also, it would need to be interesting at the very least.

    I don't think there is a hope in hell Alvarez/Nate does anywhere close to 1 million buys IMO....I'm with Dawg on this one, 500K TOPS

    Like I say, with the correct promotion, and a willing Diaz to do promotion also.......if it's the norm, then 500k is most likely.
