Get on his level.

 

The one and only Chael P. Sonnen is a mastermind of everything.

 

If Mr. Sonnen says it, it is what it is.

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.


check out ufc 136 where Sonnen was co-main event. 225k. one of the worst selling ppv's of the past 5 years. lol


the headliner was edgar maynard III...

Aldo Florian were also on it. im pretty sure people are allowed to buy a card for fights that are not the main event. the point is Chael sonnen doesn't necessarily get sales if the circumstances aren't just right for him.

You can't seriously look at Machida's numbers and make a valid point that he doesn't sell. Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard don't sell. Matt Hamill and Thiago Silva couldn't sell main events against guys who typically pull good numbers. Dan Henderson doesn't sell well as a headliner. Lyoto Machida is none of those guys.

Yup not a huge seller but it showed that Chael essentially brought in no views


LOL most fans don't even know who's fighting on a card beyond the headliner, and that's only cause they saw it when they ordered the PPV
