Sonnen seemingly has a dislike for anybody that is Brazilian so this is hardly a surprise that he is hyping up Weidman Phone Post 3.0

The UFC is in the hard sell mode for this PPV.

Sonnen is a UFC employee through and through.

If it means 5 people suddenly buy into Weidman winning because of what Sonnen said, it's worth it.

Look for it to get even heavier in the next week or so with everyone chiming in on matters to where Weidman becomes a prime Fedor in terms of no one wanting to fight him.

It's necessary.

Because the reality doesn't sell PPVs.

The reality is Weidman's big win was over Munoz in a fight aired on a channel that no one saw.

The reality is fans want to skip this to get to a potential Jones-Silva fight.

They need to sell the idea of an upset so fans think they shouldn't dare skip this event. Phone Post

A lot of this hype is for the casuals and the in-betweeners who just need a little push.

Hardcore fans will definitely buy this. It's Fourth of July weekend and its the UFC and silva.

In fact I guarantee you bars will be packed to show this. Phone Post 3.0

That's a bingo.

The reality is Anderson isn't a PPV draw. The reality is Anderson will not fight Jones because he knows he will be humiliated.
Anderson doesnt sell ppvs in North America, but he draws eyes in South America. Thats where his money comes from. Dallas Cowboys have never sold a PPV, but their money comes from viewership. Phone Post
