    I'm going to say Pettis vs. Aldo just because I'm still upset that fight got cancelled. Easily one of the fights I was most excited about.

    I'm not quite sure it would pass the 500K mark, people just don't seem to care about anything bellow welterweight.

    True enough. More my own personal preference, I don't think I could pick a better fight on paper than that.

    I like the picks in the original post. All guaranteed to be big-money PPV fights, huge numbers.

    If Rumble KOs Gus, Rumble vs. Jones will be just as lucrative as the Gus rematch.

    Punk-Diaz obviously. LOL

    McGregor-Aldo will be huge.

    GSP-Hendricks II would be draw buys as well.

    If you're going to include GSP though you may as well have Lesnar, and just about any opponent with him would draw huge.

    I disagree with the OP. I think Jones vs Cain/Weidman draws way more than Weidman vs Silva III (which wouldn't do even close to 1 mil).

    Silva/GSP with the right hype, right venue (Cowboy Stadium) and right undercard = 2.5+ million buys

    With the right marketing and if cain can learn to talk then cain v jones. Or Silva v GSP.
    Aldo or Mcgregor v Pettis would be great.

    Jon Jones Vs Anderson Silva

    Provide A Silva beats Diaz. I know they want to give him a MW title shot, but the Jones fight would sell way more.
