A few guys were/are close, but no one has really turned the corner.
Not sure if serious.
Are you just gonna make a thread on every mma related thought you have?
SLOtownG - Chuck was still the biggest. When he fought, it was an event.
pretty sure Brock was the guy.
SLOtownG - Chuck was still the biggest. When he fought, it was an event.Agreed.. He was the biggest we had.
People who couldn't even spell UFC if you gave them the "U" and the "C" tuned in to watch Brock.
Seems like the biggest names just aren't active enough.
I'm not a GSP fan but he's got a global following.
FudgePackedByScrapPack -I think OP likes to ride a giant banana.
Are you fucking crazy, how much more of a star do you have to be to ride a giant dole banana?
Bob Sapp in Japan was about as big as anyone can be.
all were legit stars who could pull good ppv numbers
GSP was the Bret Hart of MMA: very technical, but only Canada cared.
Chuck was the hero of the beer drinking white guy who didn't watch WWE
Brock was the hero of the beer drinking white guy who watched WWE
Fedor's Pride and Bodog PPV did 30,000 max in the USA. Nobody cared, and nobody in Russia knows/knew who Fedor was. He doesn't even compete in real sport Sambo, he's in a made up sport: Combat Sambo, that's like the arena football league of Sambo.
Rampage was on the verge before he went crazy
Jones is too good. Fans are insanely jealous. They can't imagine themselves being Jones.
Ken Shamrock was a star. He saved the UFC.
To this point Brock is it. The PPV numbers don't lie.
