    Outside of the title contenders at 155,145, I think Lawler & Cerrone are way bigger draws & fighters like that.

    If you had the no. 4 & no. 5 guy of other divisions I don't even think it's much of a draw.

    (I think Lawler & Cerrone should be like 6th-15th ranked at 170, Lawler is not no. 3 ).

    Holm, Cyborg, Ronda, JJ are bigger draws. cowboy and lawler are good fighters but not big draws

    Not sure what Korean Zombie is ranked, but I'd say he's right up there with them.

    Of course not.
    Cyborg's draw-ness is yet to be proven...

    Lawler and Cerrone have never drawn anything.

    Holm isn't, she was riding a coattail and not even co-main material anymore. JJ isn't, they pretend she is but she's unknown. Hopefully Ronda is gone for good


    Sadly only by those who been around longer than 5 years. He's exciting but not a common name outside of fight fans.

    Cowboy is the biggest draw in MMA history. Lawler is the second biggest. So yes.

    Holm drew big on TV, ditto for JJ. Lawler and Cerrone haven't really done that.

    Artem-Cub were a headliner, while Cerrone and Lawler can only headline prelims nowadays

    Out of those four, only Ronda is a bigger draw, and she doesn't fight anymore. Holly's post Ronda matchups doesn't count, and I love Holly.

    But your WMMA fanboyism is noted, so you accomplished what your post intended. Enjoy the WNBA regular season, doesn't that start after the men are finished playing?

    Exactly. the people in this thread think hardcore fanboydom = large casual viewership.

    go look at the numbers if you dont believe me.

    Your opinion of where Lawler should be ranked tells me you are a casual mma viewer

    It's weird how drawing power is subjective now. No one in here needs to look at any numbers or anything.
