Here we go again. Why do you watch MMA if all you do is complain about it

Secondly look at the names of the highest grossers, brock who brings in WWf crowd but for how long? he has no heart and is only in it because he couldnt hack it at anything else..Rampage is another one thats only in it for the pay cheque and doesnt have long left..And then there is gsp tainting the sport and bringin in the wrong crowd with his safety first homo erotic approach..The fact that casuals arent down with anderson is a worrying indication..

Silva VS Sonnen is UFC 117, not 107.

Wow if ya don't know what you're talking about maybe you shouldn't say anything.

Mayweather vs. Mosley was between 2 P4P fighters and if you watched the fight you would've seen that Mayweather was rocked twice early on but came back to win and dominate Mosley impressively.

I love the UFC but would loved to have seen the Khan/Maidana fight on there - that fight was INSANE!
Khan/Maidana wasn't PPV although I agree a brilliant fight.

Thought Sonnen vs. Silva would've been abit higher, had tons of hype around it and for me was fight of the year

Anyone else surprised to see why Brock is so important for the UFC, getting back in title contention so soon after his loss to Cain?!

I am not!

BELIEVE!

But it then begs the question - is the UFC [part of] a sport, where it's based on the competition/rankings alone, or "sports entertainment", where the dollar/popularity out-weighs the athlete's rankings/deservedness?

Just a thought.

If a fighter/team/athlete draws more than another it doesn't mean they are better, on average every manchester United match draws twice what a Barcelona match draws, but who is the bettter team? Tough to say!

Nice numbers, just proves even more how screwed boxing will be once Mayweather and Pacquiao retire - there are no new bit draws coming through, and after them 2 retire, i don't think we will see a boxing buyrate over 1 million for a very long time, unless maybe the Klitchko's fought each other.

Haye Vs either Klitschko would do 750,000 plus i reckon it's the only fight other than Alexander/Khan or Khan/Bradley i'd pay to see.

Boxing will be okay. There were people who thought the sport wouldn't survive without guys like Ali and Frazier but it did. Then the same people said boxing was dead after Tyson left but Mayweather and Paq came along...

MMA might have overtaken it as the more popular combat sport but boxing isn't going away anytime soon. There will always be some new hyped up talent.
