Nope, Anderson fanboys have to skew stats. Nevada only.

GSP - Hendrix 2 would be nice.

gsp made the smartest move of his career - retiring / LOA whatever you call it - while still the champ in a "controversial" fashion.

He has all the leverage in the world in negotiating a return with Dana/UFC. it would be the biggest ppv of all time once he returned, no matter who he faced - the anticipation and excitement would overrule everything else.

expect him to fight on the 2014 NYE card or shortly their after in Montreal for the title.

Anderson could only get 55 K to a stadium in Brazil and not at high enough ticket prices to do 12+ million. GSP is king of PPV, king of butts in seats, king of prizefighters in MMA period.

GSP/Hendricks 2 could probably sell out Dallas stadium and get even more than 12 million.

Anderson will be lucky to sell out a 15 K arena on his return.

GSP vs Hendricks II in Cowboys Stadium is the biggest fight the UFC could put on right now
