    In the modern era, no UFC champ sucks at selling pay per views like DJ. Hahaha. Yet the so called pound for pound best has the nerve to ask for unnecessary conditions. Dude should just shut the fuck up and accept whatever the UFC gives him.

    He's referring to Johnson vs Bagutinov

    Johnson vs Bagautinov 115,000
    Funny enough he wants DJ to defend against a guy with one of the lowest PPV numbers as well
    Dillashaw vs Soto 125,000

    I'm not even a DJ fan but unless you have a financial stake in the UFC then why the fuck do you even care ?

    UFC has fucked up marketing the flyweight division. Besides Dodson, Cejudo and Benevidez, nodody knew who his opponents were.

    Nice.

    He probably wants him to defend against TJ because he knows TJ will win and stop the shit division from having any place in the history books.

    But all of his television fights do well.

    He should never accept what the UFC gives him. No fighter should. Dillashaw has and he is an idiot. Hell, DJ has too. Double idiots.

    TBF, that was Renan's fault. No way were ppl going to pay for a PPV in which the challenger was selected on 1 day's notice.

    Surely that's part of it
    I remember no actual promotion for Baguvatinov either though - and it at the very least it implies that Dillashaw at that point (which was around the same point DJ drew the lowest) wasn't a huge draw on his own either.
