I'm excited for Primetime (I'm always excited to see fighters training).

But "Brocktober" in general...not so much. It seems to me like its Spike using the allure of the Gargantuasaurus Leznarus to beef up their viewership and the UFC just trying to break their PPV record. Was it still UFC 100 or did that get broken? Can't remember. Either way, I might watch the UFC 116 and maybe the Heath Herring fight since I can't remember it at all other than the catapult knockdown! But other than that I'm unexcited...

What? Why wouldnt you make one of the top money makers for your business a poster boy?

Outside of GSP, there isn't anyone but Lesnar who constantly get high PPV rating. You might be able to add Rampage to this list, but thats about it.

First and foremost, UFC is a business, they are in the sports/entertainment industry to make money.


You could of had a good argument if you posted that reply in a Kimbo/Toney thread, not a Lesnar one.
