Lesnar clearly drawing alot of attention as his 3 events are in the top 5 PPV #'s so far in 2008. This of course does not take into account, Dec. 27, which should be a substantial draw.

I wonder if next year they will beat boxing with the Top PPV of the year. I'm assuming that DLH won't be in a massive fight next year, like he has been these past two years with Floyd and Pacman. And Boxing is struggling without DLH, he's their biggest draw by a street.

Hatton - Pacquiao is the biggest boxing PPV set for next year.

Not having an American in it will drop the alot.

I agree. Pac-Man definately pulls viewers but doesn't quite have the draw that DLH did. I suspect this list will be dominated again by the UFC in '09 with Wrestlemania stuck in there somewhere.
