    He's just about cleaned out the light heavyweight division, destroying legends and fan favorites along the way. Will people be ready to pay to see him go through them one or two more times?

    Exciting, dominant champs are good financially for the company. Jones may not sell like past guys(Liddell) did, but he sells better than a revolving door of LHW champions would. It starts becoming about the novelty of seeing the dominant champion and not his actual opponents. You could book Jones vs Phil Davis or Ryan Bader and get better than average buys just on Jones' name.

    That's only true in the case of charismatic champs.

    UFC needs to adopt a loser policy, once you lose a championship fight, you are dropped out of the UFC. Why keep losers around. There are a lot of new talent out there, UFC needs to work harder at getting new fighters and clean out all the losers they have in their ranks.

    Only interesting fights with him for me now are superfights with Weidman or going up to HW.

    I see TS isn't even going to wait for the PPV estimates before making outlandish claims.

    Exactly and thank you. You put it best. He is losing fans left and right, doesn't care about it. Chuck was revered and loved by all and brought the masses everytime he fought. Chuck also became very popular amongst even the fringe fans. JBJ is so far from that....someone should help him fix this. He is straying farther from being a likable champion IMO.

    What a truly stupid question. Are you proud of yourself for being the stupidest person on the internet today?

    Dana said it blew his estimate of 750k out of the water.

    Don't be surprised if this is a million plus card.

    I think it might be close to million and he's going to be a huge draw now that he's embraced the heel role.

    Yeah history has shown us that dominant champs are bad for business.

    Why'd you have to put your signature at the end? Are you scared somebody might steal this post full of wisdom?

    GSP has as much charisma as a paper cup. His PPV's sold like hot cakes, and not just in Canada, either, so you can't say it's just b/c he's Canadian.

    Mayweather is the ppv king. Some might call him charismatic, many more wouldn't.

    Now who would call Jones charismatic? Even Jones' most ardent supporters recognizes that he needs an epic PR team.
