Maybe if you're counting long term careers(by this logic, Taker is a bigger star than Steve Austin), but nobody did it on his level in the history of the sport. Yes, win-loss record is a huge part in the position but if you can't draw for your big fights, can't promote them and sell PPVs, you're not a star. Brock could lose 10 fights in a row if he can still draw the biggest numbers and he did it with Overreem in December. It's all about drawing power in the PPV business and UFC is a PPV business.

You know nothing.

4 out the top 6 PPV buyrates in UFC history were main evented by Lesnar, he is BY FAR the biggest draw they have EVER, and will EVER have.

Not opinion, fact.

He made the UFC an insane amount of money.

Please name the "Hundreds" that have outsold a Lesnar UFC Event. There's a reason why he was the cover athlete of the UFC game over the "Hundreds" as you say that have more mainstream appeal than Lesnar does.

Chuck Liddell had about 25 fights in the UFC. I bet those added up to quite more than Lesnar did in his six fights. I said more money overall, not from just one event.

I understand that his PPVs drew well but this is a sport and talent factors into it as well. Not saying it's everything, but it has much to do with it.

Like I said in the Raw thread. It doesn't matter how many stars you have on a show if the writing is complete ass. They need to make it so that the whole show from top to bottom is interesting not just when Rock, Brock, Cena or Punk is on.

I think I've figured it out people. Last week was actually able to hold viewers for most of the show and then pop a huge gain at the end. Solution to falling ratings? DAT HOT CROWD DURR

Doesn't change the fact that he draws big time for PPV. UFC PPV anyways. WWE, that remains to be seen of course.
