    It's Fila, and Fila hasn't been cool since the Grant Hill's.

    She might be the next big draw, but that's only because they have a gap after GSP and Silva stepped away. I'm not sure she's shown she's a better draw than Nick Diaz at this point, who wasn't the top of the top a couple of years ago.

    I think Rousey is much less interesting than she's marketed and fans know it. When she's outside the fight game, she's not particularly charismatic. When she's in the fight game, she doesn't do much that either endears her to or riles up casual fans. That's the difference, where people like Sonnen and Mayweather have personalities and traits that transcend the event whether it's by jokes, money bragging, whatever.

    "My client Rhonda Rousey will arouse everyone's attention and surpass the buy rates of ever known MM A fighter in UFC history. All she does is Eat, Sleep, Break Arms and repeat."

    Ok serious question. Is Paul Heyman even an mma manager? Or is this just the opinion of a former pro wrestling promoter? If it is, I propose it be newbjacked as it's not really news.

    It's not news. It's ridiculous to claim that she is a bigger draw than the men's ww, mw, lhw, and hw title holders.

    Not managing anyone as far as I know. But he is working with people on their PR game. I think Sonnen worked with him, Jones is now, maybe Rousey too?

    If you truly believe Rousey is the highest draw, the question you need to ask yourself is "how many ppv's have I purchased just because of Rhonda?"

    Rousey/McMann drew 340,000 buys

    Hendricks/Lawler drew 300,000 buys

    Cain/BigFoot II drew 380,000

    Cain/JDS III drew 330,000

    Jones/Tex did 350,000

    Jones/Goose did 310,000

    Silva/Weidman II did over a million

    Weidman/Machida is rumored to have done around 500,000


    I'd say for the most part Rousey is on par or better than the other champions in the UFC.
