    There's only two contenders and I think it is pretty damn even.

    Brock Lesnar: WWE fanbase + unprecedented physique

    Ronda Rousey: Female + fighting on a different planet than all the other WMMA fighters (except maybe Miesha)

    Hard to say.

    rousey's by far the best female fighter in the ufc...

    being a spectacle doesn't mean you aren't a great fighter. it just means everyone is tuning into the fight or it is creating a ton of buzz for atypical reasons

    i was going to say hong man choi for outside UFC but obviously the king of spectacles was Bob Sapp

    Lots that would fit in the "spectacle" category.

    Fighters in the UFC.. Brock and Rousey (Sorry Anderson).
    Fighters outside the UFC ... Genki Sudo, Sakuraba-Gracie wars and Bob Sapp

    UFC Events - UFC 100
    Non-UFC Events - Hard to say... a few Pride GP's, Fedor vs Couture maybe?

    Of all time? Still to come. Forever is a long, long time.
