    Last night i saw instances of Floyds defensive boxing, quick speed/direction changes of Manny and properly using low power to high power shots like that of Mayweather.

    If he can replicate or even surpass his performance like last night the UFC should have their new top PPV earner. *Though issues will arise from not facing high quality/named opponents. For high paydays he will need to jump weight classes and fight for their titles.

    A bantam or featherweight will never be the UFC's top PPV draw.

    This thread started off so bad.

    No, Dillashaw is not that great. He's the weakest champ right now. He won because he moved a lot and Barao was committed to head-hunting with his hands. This is a guy who didn't even win on the Ultimate Fighter.

    Please don't compare him to all-time greats.

    Oh yeah, just like the biggest draws in the history of boxing weren't 135-145 lbs fighters.

    As depressing as it is he's too small to be a ppv star unless he goes full Cheal Sonnen

    Well it's good that the 135 champion is "not that great". Makes 97% of UFC fighters utter crap by your logic.

    I know it's a little early but he looks like the fighter everyone wanted Cruz to be.

    Truly magnificent performance.

    TS is very delusional and does not know how the combat sport's market works.

    Boxing is the only combat sport that produces high PPV buys from lighter weight fighters because it is Boxing. It is an old sport which has carried on tradition for decades.

    MMA has a long way to go before their lighterweight fighters garner high PPV numbers.

    The lightest weight fighter that has produced Manny Pacquiao numbers is GSP but he was 170. Still a long way to go.
