    Don’t get me wrong. Conor McGregor is probably the best striker to have ever stepped foot into the octagon, but he’s slightly overrated. Many fans emotionally invest themselves in McGregor’s persona, because his charisma is inspiring. Spectators gravitate to sports because of the raw emotions that competition elicits from the crowd. However, feelings impair logical analysis. McGregor is very calculating, and I attempt to view the progression of his UFC career from a perspective that strategically maximizes both his and the UFC’s profits.

    Look, McGregor’s quick knockout of Jose Aldo is highly impressive but other than that, McGregor’s quick rise was through a somewhat weak 145 lbs. and 155 lbs. roster. Eddie Alvarez was never a convincing champion. Chad Mendez is a small wrestler who took the fight against Conor on short notice. Nate Diaz is tough as nails but not an absolute monster.

    Conor’s absence from the UFC is strategic. Conor can certainly beat Khabib Nurmagomedov, but Khabib is a true test for McGregor. The risk of a one-sided rag dolling by the Russian would have interrupted the money train for both Conor and the UFC. Professional martial combat is a game of percentages. These two could train together every day, and some days would favor Conor while others favor Khabib. Why risk the future profits of a promotional genius like Conor?

    McGregor has absolutely nothing to lose fighting Floyd. He’s expected to lose and will retire from MMA very wealthy. If Conor wins, he achieves an even higher legendary status. This is a perfect example of an asymmetric risk-to-reward proposition. This boxing match might not have happened if the marketing machine behind Conor derailed on a gamble with Khabib. The opportunity costs were too great, and Conor is too calculating to a make such a poor business decision.

    Maybe the financial incentive to fight Khabib in Russia will be enough to get Conor to step foot again into the octagon. Conor didn’t dismiss the idea when interviewed by the press, but he did redirect the conversation to other potential match-ups like a Diaz trilogy. Conor is thinking economics and optimal game theory. What opponents yield the highest probability of winning while also maximizing his paycheck? Also, McGregor is too smart not to consider the longevity of his income stream.

    I do hope Conor McGregor  returns to the UFC, but the Irishman has a business mind and there will certainly be plenty of other investments and ventures open to him after his big payday with Floyd.
