No one thinks he may be trying to spark some curiosity? if 5% of those people check out the UFC to see what the hell he's talking about, who wins?
2B x 5% = 100M
I think you are giving him too much credit...but as the saying goes, "there is no such thing as bad publicity (intentional or not)".
I would say, though, that by now, knowledge of the UFC is pretty global. Therefore, I doubt his statement would have any significant impact, other than to re-affirm what many around the world already feel: That Americans are wilfully ignorant of the world beyond their borders - present company excluded.
