Everyone bitching about her and creating multiple threads for months made her even more popular.

This statement hurts Dana's argument in the debate that he's not hiding Ronda from Cyborg. Apparently you're paying her more than any other fighter or close to it, no wonder you don't want her to get brutally smashed.

I think you might be right, I forgot about that. Think the amount might be over $3.50 though per buy. Her management knew how big she was as a draw and I think they got her a good deal. Somewhere between $6-$10 mil in 3 fights is my guess. We will never know though.

Doesn't the PPV cut kick in after a certain threshold? Like after 300k or so and you get paid for every buy over that number? Speculation on my point, perhaps you know better.

On the surface, you're correct, but in the bigger context, you're not. The UFC brand sells because the public thinks/knows its the best org for MMA. This is because they have virtually all the top 10 fighters under contract. Guys like Okami/Fitch were top 10 for a long time, and both legit title contenders who got shots at the belt and had big wins before and after their shot. Having guys like that on the roster add to the idea of  the "UFC level" fighter and makes the brand strong. You can watch guys of little relevance stand & bang on HDnet if you just want action. UFC has to walk the fine line of balancing action with merit.
