CM Punk is NOT a draw. I'm pretty sure the reported gate was horse**** too.

They basically did a little better than Amanda Nuñez #'s lol......................................

 

Maybe its time for the UFC to move to subscription service in the US (except when McGregor fights).

The gates generally have to be reported to the commission, so they’re usually accurate.

If Punk was going to be any kind of a draw in this fight, it was likely going to be in terms of ticket sales since it was in his home town.

NewFC are killing themselves. They don't have any faces you want to get behind nor any heels you care enough to watch lose. And yet they continue to dilute their product with weekly events. They really need to worry more about quality over quantity at this point, not once have they put on an event to rival the pageantry that was Pride FC. People might be getting tired of their trailer park roster too.

The UFC has no original fighters with a bit about them, we went from the likes of Jon Jones, Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey (**** but a draw) to **** Daniel Cormier, Colby **** Covington and Amanda Nunes, none of which are selling fights. There is talent but absolutely no standout fighters who can sell themselves, ffs the P4P number 1 is more focused on gaming that fighting. And then we have the likes of CM Punk being allowed fight in the UFC. UFC 225 was by far the best overall card this year.... and it was ****.

The forum just can't handle level-headed fact-based analysis using the queen's English.  I should have just said that Vanatta double-diggled that foglet Ferguson in blueberry flavoured buttermilk and I'm sure Banham would have agreed.

I refuse to believe all those tickets sold without giving some away. They were so overpriced, and there's been better cards in Chicago that people passed on.

I thought it was a pretty good card so i don't believe the numbers and what is the penalty for not reporting accurate numbers anyhow.

 

The prelims had 667k viewers so yeah i don't believe there was 1/4 the interest for the main card.I would never discount something fishy or illegal from the UFC.

 

As to a lot of talk about CMPunk,.he was ALWAYS a joke and never deserved a single fight in the UFC, a total circus act from day 1.His signing proved at the time and still proves the UFC is not after the best talent,the best MMA fighters but instead ONLY interested in the UFC itself and not the sport.

Oh but wait we built these large facilities costing multiple millions,yeah more leverage to still try and get into the Olympics.We have seen a steady move every year of not signing the best talent,example Rory leaving is a huge one considering he defeated Woodley.

I also heard some nonsense about the Middleweight and Welterweight divisions not being a good draw...lmao,so if Darren Till was on the card a lousy draw?It simply depends on the fighters,there is interest in pretty much every division if the fighters are interesting.

 

I still feel the card was good although some of the fights ended up being clutch n grab borefests.

The ufc owes UBEREEM an apology, hes a bigger draw than Punk, IDC what evidence any of you morons bring to back it up

 

additionally I'd like to point out ufc 225 wasn't stacked as people made it out to be aside from the main event

Reem doesn’t get ppv points, so of course he won’t care where he is placed. 95 percent of the roster rather fight earlier because they don’t get ppv

The only ones getting ppv on the roster probably would be Brock, Punk, Conor, Ronda, GSP, Jones, Cormier, Stipe, Mouse, Cyborg, Nunes, Woodley, Dillashaw, Holloway and Khabib

I doubt they even gave Rose, Montano and Whittaker ppv yet
