    Is this doing more damage to the PPV numbers than his attitude?

    No.

    Too many cards and too big of a price i think is what hurts the PPV numbers.
    And people who think like your title also hurt the sport.

    GSP didn't finish non WW's. It probably detracts from the excitement factor but Bones isn't a big finisher. He typically breaks people down.

    Re: PPV's. It means nothing. Mayweather never finishes. The hate he's getting will fuel PPV buys long into the future.

    Bones lacks KO power.

    One would expect more finishes from a LHW but I don't think it has anything to do with pvp buys. At this point Jones is getting as many people watching to see him lose as there are watching to see him win.

    And we don't know how badly it affected GSP because the UFC numbers can't be trusted.

    What we do know is that GSP's final fight was one of his worst as far as sales go.

    GSP barely finished anyone (or even came close) and he was a huge star.

    Cain finishes almost everyone in brutal fashion and no one cares about him.

    It's about how you market yourself.

    Yes clearly doing a lot of damage to the PPV number since Dana is saying this might actually have come close to 1 million buys.
