A lot of people are shocked that Mirko is headlining a UFC card in Europe, but the fact is the name Mirko Cro Cop will probably bring more asses into the arena then the rest of the roster on that card put together. Brock is just as irrelevant in the HW picture, but if he came back tomorrow he would be headlining a Vegas card, and it would do better numbers than any UFC champ can dream of. UFC is desperate for star power, and Conor is bringing something new to them, but aside from him it's basically boring champs with no personality like Weidman, Cain, Lawler, and Aldo... or just unlikeable characters like Jones and Rhonda. Guys like Rampage and Mirko are not gonna seriously threaten for a title anymore, but fans will always want to see them fight because they're the last of a dying breed. They are larger than life original personalities, in a sport that's becoming saturated with JOAT clones, and point fighters.
