Brock Lesnar Is “Biggest UFC Attraction” According To Chael Sonnen

0

Chael Sonnen is regarded as one of the best fighters in the world when it comes to the hype game.

But when asked about Brock Lesnar and his drawing power, there is no one better.

Sonnen, during a recent interview with Submission Radio, was asked who is the bigger UFC draw: Lesnar, Conor McGregor or Ronda Rousey.

“Yeah absolutely. And we talked about this, but Rousey was never the draw that she was advertised as. She never did the PPV numbers or the live gates that was advertised,” he said. “It was always Conor by a lot, during that era when there was a debate between those two. Conor was the money guy. And why it was promoted and marketed differently, I don’t know, but it was just that. It was promotion and marketing. It was not reality.

“And yes, Lesnar crushes them both. They’re not even comparable. When you’re talking about the biggest UFC of all time and the biggest gate – you never bring up UFC 100. It was just such an anomaly. It’s like it’s taken off the board. You know, they did 1.755 million. So yes, Lesnar without a doubt is the biggest attraction the UFC has ever seen.”

Lesnar is set to return July 9 at UFC 200 against Mark Hunt.
