Depth doesn't sell PPVs.

 

Star power in the main event sells PPVs.

 

 

 

If depth sold PPVs, last year's MSG show would've been the best selling show of the year.

 

It was third.

The first Aldo/Holloway fight did 200,000. You really think 100,000 more people are suddenly going to be interested in a rematch that was put together on like three weeks notice?

Because they knew the PLATINUM SQUAD was going to be in attendance, and that King Banham has been an Eddie fan since day one just like I've been a Gaethje fan since day one.

Nah, leg kicks don't work well with a guy with long reach.  He threw a couple early doors and promptly ate an OH right.

I also wouldn't mind seeing Jose win again, but I think Max will be a bit better than last time and Aldo a bit worse.  Have a feeling that Aldo stays a bit more out of trouble and maybe loses to a decision this time.
