We americans like fighters, not stallers. Not to many GSP fans over here, mostly its the fags who watch the occasional UFC unleashed that like GSP.


No, we Americans like winners.

I would say Chuck Lidell but GSP and Lesnar are very close.

Yep, not only is it dumb, it's also false, simply because GSP dominated the bests they could find for him to fight, was it by wrestling, standing or simply putting a more intense fight (fighting intensity and stalling don't seem to work well together imo).

Judging from PPV buys it appears it is Lesnar and/or GSP. Can anyone confirm PPV buys popularity?

that is a great measure of popularity among mma fans. unfortunately the great majority of americans are not mma fans and sadly both lesnar and kimbo are easily in the top 5 most popular and possibly top 3

i can remember some of my friends at work thinking that kimbo slice was a badass. i simply replied no and told them that he is about to start fighting trained fighters and he will get his ass handed to him :lol: they didnt believe me :lol:
based on skill set, jose aldo is the best p4p fighter in the world

Kimbo is not any longer. I am guessing according to current numbers. Kimbo is out of fashion nowadays. He has experienced his hay days few years back. Lesnar is on decline but still current (He won't be in a year or so, but that's neither here nor there). GSP has always been popular all over the world not only in USA.

are we talking about most liked or most well known. for me i would think most well know would be the long time champs like AS GSP older champs like Randy and Chuck and even Penn. then there is also lesner and tito and Shamrock that are well known, but not liked.
