Jon Jones' title defense against Chael Sonnen appears to have done numbers almost perfectly in line with Jones' career average.

Silva vs. Sonnen II..................... 925,000


Jones vs. Belfort........................ 450,000
Silva vs. Bonnar .........................410,000
GSP vs. Condit ..........................700,000
JDS vs. Velasquez II...................590,000
Aldo vs Edgar.............................. 330,000
Rousey vs Carmouche...............450,000
GSP vs Diaz ................................ 900,000
Jones vs Sonnen.........................550,000

It's a shame Jones isn't as marketable as he is talented. Plus Sonnen didn't really "promote" the fight, he took the back seat and the TUF season was all about Urijah instead of the coaches.... I guess most people saw through the UFC's promotion.

The free cards have been blowing the PPVs out of the water lately as far as excitement goes. I love free fights.
