Is GSP the ufc's only big ppv star.

I noticed a couple of threads mentioning ppv buys and UFC stars and I was thinking, is Gsp the UFC's only big ppv star. With UFC 156 only getting around the 300k mark with the super fight of Aldo and Edgar, and with Overeem and rashad on the sane card, some could say that it was a massive disappointment. I know Anderson is a pretty big name but even he sometime fails to bring big numbers (UFC 134) to mention one. Will we ever see a ppv get over 1 million again, or is there a star on the roster that can hit those numbers in the future.?

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

Usually a HW or LHW championship fight will draw. I don't wanna say Cain or JBJ are the sole reasons, but I can't recall a LHW or HW championship fight card that did really poorly.

When casual fans here "...heavyweight champion of the world" I think they get excited.

Jones isn't a draw, HW can't be generalized as a draw, because Lesnar vs Overeem only drew 535k buys, JDS vs Cain only did 590k buys..

Lesnar was right beside GSP when he was around, even when he wasn't the champ. Him and GSP are the only two who can draw that high consistently.

You would expect a finisher like Anderson to be up there in the 700s-900s consistently but for whatever reason, he just can't draw until recently and not even that high. GSP could probably fight some scrub off the streets and still draw 700+ somehow.

Its strange, I mean its not like GSP is the most charismatic person around but he always gets the numbers. Maybe it's because he seems more beatable than someone like Silver.

Living in the UK I get the PPV's for free(ish) but if I was buying I'd favor a GSP card over a silver card because I think the outcome of an Anderson Silver fight is a forgone conclusion.

Lesnar is the biggest draw in UFC history, GSP wasn't even that close. RIGHT NOW, GSP is the only draw as an individual. You could argue that HW Title fights as a whole are a draw. There's a few guys like Rousey, Bones, and Silva that have their own notch, and then everyone else is below. But right now, GSP seems to be the only name that will draw just based on his name way above everyone else.
