    Bisping was one of the bigger draws before he was champion, imagine now.

    Bisping is the most marketable, due to his trash talk.

    Least might be mighty mouse, due to his LACK of trash talk, and folks disdain for the smaller guys. (*note*I have no prob with him being quiet & humble personally, but I understand how that hurts his marketability).

    UFC average fanbase is mostly retarded so you gotta think of everything backwards. Who's your most talented and most respectful champ? Mighty Mouse? Ok then he's your least marketable.

    Who is your biggest loudmouth champ, who probably loses to half the top 10 in his division? Bisping? Ok then, there's your most marketable.

    Bro science.

    I guess fan interest has mostly moved on to commercials and marketability. Why? Because the UFC is not a sport, it's a partially staged soap opera.

    Who's the most marketable MLB player? Answer: go fuck yourself, who cares? Who has the most RBIs, etc etc?

    This is a window into the differences between a sport and the UFC.

    Nunes is clearly more marketable than MM.

    Mighty Mouses's size plays a huge factor too. Sadly.

    Ask for a list of the most impressive performances this year and I guarantee everybody leaves MM vs Cejudo off.

    Most - Joanna & Bisping, I wouldn't put Cruz too far off though.

    Least - Nunes and mighty mouse.

    Tryone Woodley is the least marketable which is why he had to call out the two biggest names in the division, despite both not having fought for about 2 years. He's just looking to latch on and ride someone elses popularity.

    Nunes is pretty low, especially if she's not willing to fight.

    I think if they promote MM as chasing that record they could increase his viability a bit.

    Stipe will be huge in his home town.

    Bisping is huge as well.
