    None because he waa fighting a nobody. Now if he was facing a ranoed opponent... That would be another story.

    None, i would had hurt more if he had won a belt after a few fights, then run back to pro wrestling...like that other jacked white boy sherdog loves.

    The UFC doesnt care about its image.

    Their slogan is 'Don't fucking watch it then, ya goof'

    It exposed the fact that they’re desperate for anyone that can draw.

    It clearly didnt hurt UFC more than some "champions" failing numerous drug tests for PEDs.

    1 Cuban Missile and that's a whole different outcome; direct result of Duke Roufus' shit coaching and instruction.

    ATT would have led Punk to the promised land.

    None. The majority of paying fans don't give a shit about roids, CMPunk or Jon Jones private life issues. They just wanna see great fights.
