FACT: Nunes is a bigtime draw. She pulls in over 1M PPV buys every card she headlined.

    Well the numbers don't lie.

    If Amanda managed to get those PPV numbers without actually been promoted by the UFC.

    Imagine what numbers she would generate if the UFC actually promoted her?

    Diaz was basically a nobody before their first fight. No casual fan could tell you he was. 19-11 record he is a good fighter but never beat any of the big names except Conor. Everyone watched the rematch because they wanted to see if Conor was a fluke. Then they said he couldn't beat Alvarez and you no how that went.

    BRO. Bro.

    Yes bro, that's exactly what happened. D.C. Vs Jones 2 was cancelled hours before the event, and casuals all over the world stood up from their table at Buffalo Wild Wings and said " no you know what, fuck that, there's a girl from Brazil fighting a girl who lost to Ronda twice, im still buying the event, because that girl, is totally worth it"

    Wake the f up. Casuals only found out who Tate was when she beat Holm and none of them were reasons bought tickets, airfare and hotel to see UFC 200. I dunno about your broke ass but I actually go to Vegas cards and was just at 207. $700 for a single ticket, $180 for hotel, $90 bar tab (drinking slow), plus food + a flight from Oakland. Easily spent $1400 for less than 24 hours in Vegas all for 207. Now I'm no OR surgeon making $200,000 a year so that's a pretty big commitment, even from a hardcore fight fan. You really think people who aren't hardcore fans, are gonna travel and spend that much money for someone who isn't a massive draw? You really think people who only partly follow the fight are gonna order the card without star power? The UFC brand is a stronger sell than Tate and her gorgeous ass and tits ever were. Stop kidding yourself.

    By the way, TS was having a laugh, and instead of calling him for the troll he is, you took the bait and tried to engage a troll with mom jeans logic. You're the reason the YouTube comment section is fucking hilarious. Unchecked ignorance at its finest.

    You're a fucking casual. Kill yourself for that statement. Their first fight did 1.5/1.6m. Conor barely broke 1 million. If ur dumb ass thinks no one knew Nate before Conor then u are the problem with the fans and casuals in the sport.. U so dumb...I bought that PPV because of nate

    Those are actually 2 of the most recent cards I bought and both weren't for the women fights.

    Well she is an immigrant lesbian who is the epitome of the american dream. She speaks fairly good english, has charisma, and isn't bad looking(for a butch) I think that is equal to or even better then big bad ass DNB gets smashed, hides for months on end like a coward, but now is going to come back and save humanity. And daddy Dana with his idiotic comment that no one knows Amanda like she won the belt on fight pass and not that the fucking bicentennial show is bad.

    Again I don't know what you mean. You believe with proper promotion she could become a Ronda draw?

    This card prob has 300k buys without Ronda and still does close to 1m without nunes.

    Why do you keep bringing drawing power and PPV buys into this? I'm not even remotely saying she is or can be like Ronda. My post was a direct response to Dana saying no one knew Amanda and thats why the focused promotion solely on Ronda.

    Promotion is all about ppv buys and drawing power. I'm still not following your point. The purpose of promotion is to get the buys.
