...according to White at today's UFC on FOX 5 press conference earlier today, it was great for business to have the French-Canadian holding down another money-making main event.

He remarked:

"[St. Pierre] delivered again. It was awesome, it was a great weekend for us.... It was a good show. The king of pay-per-view is back ... let's put it that way."

Historically, UFC holds its PPV numbers close to its vest. But, it's no industry secret that UFC 100, which featured St. Pierre in the co-main event and Lesnar in the marquee match, registered a record-setting 1.6 million PPV buys back in 2009 that still stands as the high water mark to this day.

x Anchor x - I'd like to know how well this card did in terms of buys relative to the other cards in the past 18 months. Phone Post
My guess is the second most of any this year, only to Silva vs Sonnen 2 Phone Post

Mainstream fans adore GSP...The bar I usually frequent for UFC events was as packed as I have ever seen it within the almost 2 years I have been going there.

GSP even turned my parents from horrified MMA detractors to truly diehard fans. The guy is a PR magician.

When I would come to visit them before and put on UFC they thought it was barbaric and had no interest whatsoever until I brought them up to speed on GSP (Canadians). Now they don't miss an event even without GSP.

Also people rarely bring up UFC/MMA at my workplace but UFC 154 was a way different story because of Georges.

Keep kidding yourself. What they all want lies behind the spandex.

I had a guy tell me he doesn't ever watch UFC and he only knows who GSP is, and was extremely excited when I told him GSP won the fight.

 

Weird.
