machida has no problems selling ppv's. look up his sales if you want. they are fine. chael has never sold anything outside of a silva fight, and of course there will be big buys for an undeserved title fight against Jones. Outside of that, he hasn't sold shit. LOok at Machida's last 5 or 6 ppvs. all around 500,000+ Machida's drawing power is not a problem, it is a myth.  In fact, Machida drew better against shogun than jones, and nearly the same against rampage.  Look at Machida headlined cards here. not too bad, if you ask me:


ufc 84 machida, ortiz 480k

ufc 98 machida evans 635k

ufc 104 machida shogun 500k

ufc 113 machida shogun2 520k

ufc 123 machida rampage 500k     ufc 140 machida jones 480k

08/07/2010 UFC 117 Silva vs. Sonnen 600,000
07/07/2012 UFC 148 Silva vs. Sonnen II 925,000

Machida's best day barely beat's sonnen's worst.

He only got that bc of evans. Phone Post
