1. Nothing Will Ever Top Mayweather vs. McGregor
Finally, it’s time to ask simply, where can the UFC go from here?
After pulling off the unthinkable in Mayweather vs. McGregor, that kind of high tide is nearly impossible to outdo, leaving behind it a low ebb that has put us in the position of even writing this article in the first place.
Now that this monumental event is behind us, the thought of the UFC being able to outdo Mayweather vs. McGregor is unthinkable.
It will be a long time until they are able to do so, leaving the rest of 2017 as filler until the next massive combat sports event takes place.
So unless you’re a diehard MMA fan, don’t expect another event like Mayweather vs. McGregor for quite some time. For casual fans, it’s been the rest of 2017 doesn’t even exist, and that just isn’t anything close to a positive sign for the UFC moving forward.
Will they be able to overcome the drought “The Money Fight” created after one explosive cash grab?
