I said recently those were all over a year ago. Neither sold well, and Gus is not the same level of draw as any of those former title holders. Again nothing against Gus.

Please stop acting like Gus is the only guy who has performed well and lost in a PPV fight. Did Condit headline a PPV after losing to GSP or nah? He swept GSP and almost KO'd him with a headkick in a fight watched by almost 1 million people.

He made his name Saturday by beating Jones. It's up to him to market himself now.

His potential for earning far exceeds Jones.

The question in the beginning of the thread was: "How much more can a guy like Gustafsson expect to get (as a raise), after massively entertaining fight like he had this weekend?"

Some of the answers i got was:

"The fight was more entertaining because of JoJo"
"Gus doesn't sell any PPV's"
"No one knows who Gus is"
"Nobody really bought the PPV because of Gus"

I sometimes hate this place.

You don't think more people are enticed to watch a Condit fight after seeing him fight GSP and Hendricks on two of the most bought PPVs in recent years? You don't think adding Condit to a PPV card will add buys? If so, you are foolish.

Contract aside, I think they really take care of the guys in the main event, especially if it's a title fight. And when they shock the world and put on FOTY? I'd be shocked if Gustafsson made less than $500,000. And if I had to guess I'd say it was significantly more than that.

All because of "JoJo" eh? Not Gus at all? Okay.

Huh? I never said he would headline a PPV.
