    Meaning real ACTIVE stars.

    I would mention only Whittaker, Holloway, Khabib, Cormier and Cyborg.

    Are there others and why?

    we've already seen that nobody on this current roster can sell above 500,000ppvs no matter how many belts they put on the line

    Only Cormier. But he would always live under the shadow of the GOAT JONES

    If we're going by PPV buys, Brock Lesnar. The end.

    There are currently zero active PPV draws. This is unfortunate, because I would argue that the UFC's talent pool has never been better. The only argument I could make for a PPV draw right now, which is a HUGE maybe is Nate Diaz. But, we haven't seen him post Conor/Nate 2. The UFC is failing horribly at promoting fighters. 226 was a FANTASTIC card and look how poorly it sold.

    The only UFC PPV draws are all currently on the sidelines: Conor, Brock, GSP, and possibly Bones.

    I don't think they are stars. Cormier is arguably the most known of that lot and people still don't know who he is.

    100% true

    If DC Vs Stipe or Max Vs Aldo can't even do that.
    No one can.

    Would have been curious to see Khabib Vs Ferg numbers, but it pretty much was to determine Which one was next for Conor, so that would have gave that fight a boost in the rating.
    Its the Conor effect.
    sadly...

    None.

    The last two things I've seen on sky's ports and main stream media in England regarding ufc were when mcg threw a trolly at a bus and a statement regarding his comeback from his tmz 'interview' the other day.

    There's only one person that media here talks about when it comes to ufc and his name is dirt on these forums lol.
