He can't be a household name because he doesn't respect the house, house occupants, house rules and house leader and his disrespect is the main reason he is talked about a lot. Do you see Matt Serra as a household name, inspite he is a former champion and a cool dude?
Nick is a good fighter at the best, but UFC as an institution is rooting against him for the reasons exposed. So how he could be UFC household name even if he beats GSP? How to replace someone like GSP, a noble fighter and UFC poster boy for Dick Niaz?
