LOL. Being the highest seller doesn't mean you're the most popular.

no but explain if he is not that popular y ufc 116 did the second most in history with lesnar vs carwin followed by Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Chris Leben. I highly doubt leben or akiyama was responsible for that number. Also in his dynamite debut they paid him half a mill and it holds the record for the most people attending an mma fight unofficially.

yes that is call popularity he is doing something right if people are paying to see him lose. Hell i would love to someone beat the shit out of the diaz brothers but will never pay 60 dollars unless u give me 5 other good fighters. U have to be really popular to have haters like lesnar. Like i said lesnar has sold over give mill, that is a lot of haters.

PLus justin bieber is very popular i'm will to make a bet that 80% of the people who contribute to his popularity wants to knock him out.

Being hated isn't popular. being well known is what lesnar is.
people hate him because he is from the WWE.

If nate ever got the WW or LW belt he would not be a big draw and nobody buys beibers music in the hope that he gets KO'd.

If you're going off PPV buys, than yeah, easily. Liddell only had one card do one million buys, same with GSP, and he was the co-main event to Lesnar for it.

Always rooting for: Bisping, Shogun, Jon Jones, Daley, Hardy, Sonnen, Fedor, Couture, Jacare.

I highly doubt that people hate him because of his WWE past. For the question, f yes he is!

Popular probably isn't the right word to describe him. On a popularity scale, GSP probably beats everyone hands down.

Intriguing is probably a better word.
