800k is impressive but this just shows that Couture is as a draw overrated because he's never brought in big numbers even when Randy fought Chuck.
Randy's a solid draw like GSP but he's no Chuck or Tito or even Brock
For a weak card it did well.
That's slightly contradictory; he's an overrated draw and no Chuck, example being he didn't draw numbers when he fought Chuck
I'm not sure the whole weak card thing has much substance in the grand scheme of things. If you consider how many casual fans there must be out there that just see Lesnar vs Couture as the only fight of the night. That boxing mentality must be rife, it is from my experience anyway.
Whenever someone said to me 'you watching the big monster fighting this Saturday?' I would say yeah and keep an eye out for Demian Maia
