    Default Sonnen: GSP requested his UFC 167 presence because he's the 'biggest star

    Sonnen: Georges St. Pierre requested his UFC 167 presence because he's the 'biggest star in the business'

    That's because when two of the top PPV draws in the sport join forces to carry a card, it's a win-win situation for all parties involved monetarily-wise.

    Sonnen breaks it down:

    "I'm on this card because Georges St. Pierre requested I was on this card. Georges, much like me, is on the pay-per-view. He wants to make as much [money] as he can. I'm the biggest star in this business, and he called Dana White and he said, ‘Dana, if you want me to fight Johny Hendricks, you've got to put Chael Sonnen on the card.' And so I agreed to do it. I worked out with Georges two weeks ago and I did not ask him that, but that's what I was told and I took it as a compliment. If he didn't say it, I guess I'll look like a fool and be a little disappointed because I appreciated that he did."

    I used spell check and it insists that the first word in the title is perfectly spelled.

    Weird. Oh well, I gotta get off the computer anyway. I'm doing some remodeling at my place, so I need to go to Home Depot and buy a new star belt.

    Oh, that's what was misspelled.....I thought the first word and tool seemed synonymous.

    Should add a poll and see who actually believes GSP did this...
    Fav Fighters:
    - "The Phenom" Vitor Belfort
    - Renato "Babalu" Sobral
    - Georges "Rush" St. Pierre
    - Andrei "The Pitbull" Arlovski

    Without looking up the numbers I'd say Sonnen has good PPV numbers. So GSP and Sonnen should be great draws = $$$$$ even if Sonnen is a tool. I think most would agree he hypes a fight better than his record

    What kind of asshole correctly acknowledges that he makes the company a ton of money?!?! I bet you he would say he is good at wrestling too!
