UFC 61- Arlovski
UFC 68- Couture
UFC 81- Big Nog
as i said in my post, I believe it was his competition that did the PPV numbers , not TIM. That was my point.
All of those fighters, except Big Nog(who is more popular among true MMA fans, not casual) are eons more popular that Tim. Oh and UFC 81, guess who was the co-main event> Brock Lesnar. Who do you think did the numbers there?
Tim Sylvia against a lesser known fighter does crap numbers, Brock against the same lesser known fighter would triple his numbers.
