Heh. I, like many other people, don't buy every ufc event mostly because of who fights on that event. By your logic we all should be paying to see any and every fighter on any event just because they are martial artist. I am far from a martial artist, and so is brock.
I love this sport. The sport will be better when he's gone.
Edit: The reason I don't buy the cars is because I refuse to let the ufc have my money for placing him on this pedestal. To pay for the event would be to sport the bs the ufc pulled with placing Brock where he is and fueling the hype train. Not worth my $50.
There's been a lot of joke champions in the past. The problem is usually the ufc doesn't put them on magazine covers, the website home page, video game covers, and headlining the biggest event in ufc history.
He's a joke because he beat a guy who could barely compete with a old and un motivated cro cop (mir), a guy who should be retired (couture), a gatekeeper (herring), and a one dimensional power puncher (carwin... who still put him in the fetal position). Yet ufc and co make him out to be the best thing since sliced bead. That's why he's a joke.
By your logic almost all of the UFC heavyweight division is a 'hype' train. Or rather, everyone who hasn't faced Brock Lesnar yet and has the chance to beat him. If you're going to say Brock is a joke fighter because he speculatively can't beat JDS or Velasquez, 2 people in the entire world, or if you prefer to extend it, Overeem and Fedor, 4 people in the world, then you're a hater. Just admit it. We can all go home.
Also, I bet you wouldn't talk shit about Mir, Carwin, Couture, if they beat Brock or were the champion. I bet you weren't calling Carwin a one dimensional fighter before he lost to Brock (though I could be wrong) I bet you would have no problem with the UFC putting any them on the pedestal if they were champions.
Brock is the Champion because he has won the the fights to make him a champion and keep him there. Sure, he was bumped to the front of line by the UFC, but put 99.9999999% of the people in world in the same position, and they would fail.
Also, by your logic you wouldn't buy a GSP vs Silva ppv if Brock was fighting on the undercard. That's messed. My point wasn't that all real martial artist deserve to be watched, but that no fighter in the world deserves to passed on because he/she is fighting on the same card as Brock. That's stupid. It's racist against Vikings.
