    Paul Fontaine (used to post here) has a website & he keeps tracks of all stats.

    He came up with a "draw" formula that is obviously not a perfect science, but certainly interesting

    The SP score is essentially the fighter's "name value" and is one of the tools used to predict future PPV buy numbers and TV ratings. There are other factors such as drawing effect and recent trends but this is the main one.

    Where is GSP???

    Must consider GSP and Brock retired which is weird as the list has Royce Gracie and Ken Shamrock...

    Brock would likely be 2nd and GSP 4th on that list

    Are Royce & Ken officially retired? Is anybody in BFC? lol
    I'm sure his site might have something on it

    No I don't think they are. Which makes this list look weird as fuck because GSP is no longer retired and Brock could very well come back but we have 2 guys on the current list from 1993.

    But GSP hasn't fought in years
    Also Brock is not "back"
    I get that
    there needs to be some criteria/guidelines

    Paul is a good guy
    He contributes to Meltzers site
    I disagree with him as far as scoring of fights & things like fight breakdowns, but I respect him being a stataholic ;)

    Very interesting material... glad to see Rashad still going strong. Sad to see how the lower classes really have less value...

    I think most of Rashads is due to his past draws
    But I didn't go through the whole site to find the formula

    Yep... Sad to see him losing 4 in a row. Cormiers name have some value also... Shogun is not bad with 14... i wonder how the UFC matches their fighters based on name value. Hendricks is getting borrachinha now, so...

    How is Cormier that high? Is it just because was fighting Jones?

    What about Amanda? She could be so high on the list only because she was fighting Ronda. The list is biased towards the fighters that were fighting bigger draws. It doesn't really show us much about their own name value.

    Biased?
    All it can be is number based
    Nobody said it was an exact science

    DJ should be on it, and at this point I'm pretty sure most would rather pay for a Stipe fight than a Woodley fight.

    Cool list, kinda weird though.
