He's way more of a draw here than Kongo ever was
and I don't see any other french in the UFC drawing more viewers as for today than GSP
Actually I couldn't even name all the french guys in the UFC right now aside of Kongo, the only french MMA fighter whose name comes to mind isn't in the UFC, it's Xavier Foupa-Pokam who fought in the UFC a while ago, lost twice, got cut and now he's in other orgs.
Tarec Saffiedine is actually from belgium, depending on how he fares in the UFC, he could potentially be a draw too, but it's a fairly long shot to imagine him fighting for the title. He got a nice record, stats wise, but hasn't really fought anybody relevant aside of Nate Marquart.
