Messing around with google trends:
McGregor surpasses Ronda's highest mark, and Nate isn't far behind.
GSP is crickets compared to the other 3.

Something to keep in mind...Georges also goes by GSP, plus not sure how much of an impact it would make, but I bet several people spell his first name wrong. And I'm not sure if google accounts for common mispellings in their trends.

Also, access to google increases annually around the world.

It more accessible today that at any other point in the past.

The 6 or so months where the people doing things today were searched should look like that. the 15 or so years on this graph where they are non existant should also look like that. It's discovery period for people like coner and ronda the past couple of years. The discovery is amplified in spurts by stories about them playing out, their losses.

Add OJ Simpson to that graph and see what happens. People have flashes of interest relevant to when things are interesting, GSP is retired, when he wasn't, he was inquired about.


This is a fun tool though, thanks for posting this.
