All time or currently active?
I’ll get the obvious one out of the way first - Artem Lobov.
Jones (needs high level opponent)
UFC 197: Jones vs Bum Preux 322k buys. Jones does not generate over 400k buys on his own
Both. But specify.
OSP was an injury replacement.
And so what? If Jones were a draw he would have generated more than 400k buys regardless of opponent
Nate Diaz, Aldo and Alvarez
who cares not all ppvs sell 1.5 million
Jones - Glover = 350k
Jones - OSP = 322k
Jones - Gus = 310k
Even Jones vs Machida, Belfort, Shogun were only average sellers (450k range which for that timeframe was not that good). Silva-Belfort sold 725k yet Jones-Belfort sold only 450k. Silva-Sonnen sold 600k & 925k yet Jones-Sonnen sold only 530k. Machida-Shogun sold 500k & 520k yet Jones-Machida sold only 480k (Weidman-Machida sold 545k)
Jones sells decent versus the right opponent (Evans, DC) otherwise he's nothing special.
Lesnar had the first two 1 Million dollar plus PPVs. He was the real first big time draw in this sport.
Khabib did 350k buys fighting a real estate agent on short notice with half the fights falling out on that card. Pretty sure he'll easily be able to do 400k+ after the Conor fight.
