We have never had a Huge star in MMA.

A few guys were/are close, but no one has really turned the corner. Phone Post 3.0

Not sure if serious. Phone Post 3.0

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.

Agreed.. He was the biggest we had. Phone Post 3.0

We? Phone Post 3.0

People who couldn't even spell UFC if you gave them the "U" and the "C" tuned in to watch Brock. Phone Post 3.0

Seems like the biggest names just aren't active enough. Phone Post 3.0

I'm not a GSP fan but he's got a global following.

Are you fucking crazy, how much more of a star do you have to be to ride a giant dole banana?



 



I think OP likes to ride a giant banana. Phone Post 3.0

Bob Sapp in Japan was about as big as anyone can be.

Brock
Chuck
GSP
all were legit stars who could pull good ppv numbers Phone Post 3.0

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.
