Barely known to whom? Not the majority of UFC PPV buyers, while Fitch was destroyed by GSP in a bout those guys bought. I fail to see your logic if it was that easy to sell a GSP fight nowadays would he be on TUF trying to generate any form of interest in a fight with Kos?
The Shields fight is currently the ONLY GSP match up that will sell itself.
