    Noone is a superstar. The only one is Conor.

    Everyone else is just generic with no personality.

    Jon Jones was the only one besides Conor, and he is now gone.

    Conor truly deserves 50 million minimum per fight if they ever expect to see him in the octagon again because all these others are just boring.

    What happened to the Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortizs?

    Watching Roman Reigns is more exciting than Stipe Miocic.

    All other fighters on the roster should give Conor 10% of their fight purse in tribute for keeping their sport on life support.

    they were. they were big stars

    tito was the first chael/conor where he sold a shitload of ppv's by running his mouth and building up fights. UFC 40 was the first "big" ppv for zuffa, and was what proved that the UFC could turn a profit. he was essentially their first star

    the buyrates were averaging 50k buys and then titos first 2 fights after publicly talking shit, sold 100k

    They were marketable because they won fights and defended titles. That's what people wanted to see. Now they want to see shit-talking, and no one cares about titles.

    But neither of them are in the least bit charismatic.

    At least the current champions can fight. Not saying Chuck and Tito couldn't but I'd rather have champs who can fight than are worried about being marketable or superstars.

    apparently marketable fighters run from real contenders. Conor is so overrated.

    Lol at all these WWE cuckboys who can't appreciate exciting champions unless they run their mouths.

    When did the consumer start worrying about the marketability of the product that they're consuming?

    Serious question.
