The charts below break down the relative drawing power of each fighter in comparison to the average card with out them. These numbers cover PPV’s since the beginning of 2006, which for all intents and purposes marks the beginning of the modern era of the UFC on PPV. It was during this time period that the organization was first able to fully realize the benefits of their success with The Ultimate Fighter.

We sure have been seeing a lot of discussion about PPV numbers, and the end result is that Tito is a big draw.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if Tito had something to do with making sure these numbers are displayed as often as possible. Maybe this will help him get a good contract somewhere.

It's hard to believe but Anderson Silva really isn't a huge draw. For the hardcore MMA fans he is, but not the casual fan. I don't think it's a stretch to say Rashad is a bigger draw because any guy on TUF has recieved more exposure and publicity than 90% of UFC fighters. Okay so the 90% is kind of random but I bet it's close.

After Anderson's appearance on fight night though I wouldn't be surprised if his PPV numbers receive a little bump now that people have seen him on TV rather than just seeing clips of him on previews for an upcoming UFC PPV.

I dont think being american has much to do with it.If i were a casual fan and never seen him before or heard him talk.I'd think he was just some bad ass black dude.

Anderson doesn't hype himself up either. He doesn't trash talk, call people out etc. He isn't in mainstream becuase of his respect more so then anything else. If he would act like tito now and then he would be selling a TON more ppvs to the avg fan.

You see tito, and you see his commericials and its him talking crap, explainin why he is #1 or why the UFC hates him. He is ALSO in the public eye non stop. No such thing has bad publicity and tito makes that apparent.
