The UFC is first a business, and if they don't give Chael a shot at Jones after he beats Forrest, they're fools... it will be larger than UFC 100, I'm sure of it.
Silva/Belfort did 725k; that is more than Rashad and Bones which is his biggest number thus far. Bones just isn't a huge draw yet. He does consistently good numbers but he has only really been in the spotlight for about a year and a half now.

These Silva/Bonnar promos are great I wouldn't be surprised if it did 500k despite almost no one thinking Bonnar has any kind of shot at winning.
