    Suppose you could magically make anyone champ. Who would you make the champ of each division so that UFC does huge PPV numbers again? (You can only pick from people currently in that division and eligible to compete):
    • 265 - Ngannou
    • 205 - Saki
    • 185 - GSP
    • 170 - Wonderboy
    • 155 - Conor
    • 145 - Edgar
    • 135 - Cody
    • 125 - Cejudo
    • W135 - Holly
    • W115 - PVZ
    Honestly I even had trouble picking anyone for 205, 145, and 125.

    Wonderboy? Fuck him and Woodley.

    Edgar doesn't pull.

    JJ is fine as champ and pulls in eyeballs.

    McCall would pull unlike everybody else in the division.

    Ronda at 135 because she's still the pull.

    Who the fuck is Saki?

    I like your list

    I'd put GSP back at WW and Silva back at MW, if not I think they are OK with Bisping

    At HW I'd put Reem
    At LHW... damn that's harsh

    Dunno, might as well keep MM. I know he's not a draw but I can't think of anyone who would be at 125.

    Well DC has pulled consistently better numbers than any other division outside of Mcgregor and Ronda so there is no real need to change at 205.

    DC's last 4 were

    Cormier vs. Jones 2 - 900k
    Cormier vs. Johnson 2 - 400k
    Cormier vs. Silva - 1 Million (UFC 200)
    Cormier vs. Gustafsson -300k

    It could be argued that 1 event was due to Jones and 1 was a big event like UFC 200 but 300k and 400k are obviously way better than whats been going on the last couple of UFC events.

    I'll tell you this much i'll buy the PPV when DC is fighting on it.

    Also they could always make Cormier vs. Saki if Saki is as big as people make out.
