  1. I was baffled why everyone was saying GSP was a big PPV star despite how subjectively boring I found his fights to be, so I looked into it. It turns out that GSP was never really a PPV megastar. His fights averaged ~700K PPV buys with all other cards averaging 450K buys. McGregor, a true megastar, on the other hand averaged 1,250K buys, 2.8x the average. A 55% bump in sales is definitely a good thing but not earth-shattering. A McGregor card is like having 3 cards. If you have one 3 times a year it is like adding 6 extra PPVs to the year.There are a few anti-stars in the game as well. UFC 216 headlined by Amanda Nunes drew only 100 K buys and UFC 217 headlined by Tony "Cringe" Ferguson brought in only 125 K buys. You definitely can be headlining cards with them very often.

    • rose's biggest vulnerability is her weak mindset where she crumbles when facing adversity. kk tore her up in the clinch and rose's solution was to try to beat her where she was getting her ass kicked. this will be jj's easiest fight aside from penne and i expect a finish. rose could never beat gadelha or andrade, so jj has to make her pay for skipping the line.

  2. Whittaker, the real champ, didn't get the "title" shot because he refused to take part in the TUF reality show. This exhibition match is a part of the UFC turning into WWE, a "champion" who only defended against a #13-ranked 46-year old, ducking top contenders for over a year, now faces a 4-years retired midget, who never fought in the division.

    "For the record, Whittaker believes he’ll be able to rehab his knee to the point where he’s good to go in eight weeks. He thinks there was a possibility of him being able to fight on the November 4th card against Bisping, but that wasn’t the direction the promotion wanted to go. "
