Who are the real UFC main-eventers?

In each division, who are the fighters that are true main-eventers - make for a worthy main event even if their opponent is weaker.

 

And I'm talking US events, not a Brazilian in Brazil, an Irish guy in Ireland and other homer countries where everybody comes to see the local guy who wouldn't fill a bar, let alone an arena, anywhere else.

 

Copy and fill in this form please:

An Irishman in the US still sells.  Them Gypos love a good plane trip across the atlantic to watch someone bang

Flyweight: None

Bantamweight: None

Featherweight: McGregor

Lightweight: Pettis

Welterweight: Nick Diaz

Middleweight: Nick Diaz

Light heavyweight: title fight

Heavyweight: title fight

 

I would say there is nobody fighting right now who draws large. 

 

Weidman/Macida and Jones/Cormier were both really good title fights and both drew fairly large audiences. But nothing large.

 

None of those guys are known outside of MMA.
