Ratings Report: Jones, Rousey Receiving Surprisingly Lower PPV Numbers in 2014
The UFC is filled with big stars and talented fighters. For two decades, the organization has featured the best in the business and introduced hundreds of talented mixed martial artists to the general public. Within those two decades, a hand full of huge names have stuck with the masses, and those names almost insured huge fan interaction, high tickets sales, and large pay-per-view numbers. Names like Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture, Georges St. Pierre, and Anderson Silva brought hype no matter who they were fighting.

Cruz will not be asking for immediate title shot
"I never chose my fights in any part of my career, and even when I was going for the title fights (at UFC 169), that was because I was a titleholder," Cruz said. "I felt that, being a titleholder, why would I ever, ever take a step back and not fight for the title? Even if, let's say I was to go in there and just get mopped up (against Barao), that was the place that I was in. That was where I deserved to be, that title shot. I don't believe I would've gotten mopped up and I believe, still, in my heart, that I'm the best 135-pounder in the world when I can get back to full health. But I've never chosen my fights, and I'm not going to start now. "Whatever they give me, I'm going to do. Things are going to fall into place. I'll be right back in the position as long as I deserve it, and I'll work my way through however I need to. I'm not stressing about it because my first love is fighting, and if I need to fight, I don't care who I gotta fight. I just can't wait to get back in there, to be honest."
