Where is your proof that his draw has lessened?
After the gift win against he and Chuck drew 1 million buys. 600,000 buys more than Liddell vs Couture 3.
The Snooze fest was his worst draw but guess what there were no other draws on that card and it did pretty solid.
And then the buyrate for Tito vs Machida isn't out yet but I would say considering how loud his fans were at UFC 84 his fan appeal isn't gone.
Randy has never done a PPV with more than 534,000 buys. Tito did 1 million two events before that. Tito had the highest rated season of TUF higher than Randy's. Tito had the biggest number on Spike TV with his bad blood event until UFC 75.
EDIT - No I don't think Tito would be a bigger draw for Elite XC if they were doing PPV but they aren't they are on CBS which means he will draw more fans to Elite XC and they will have more people watching than any UFC event in history.
