Quoteworthy:

"I think in the U.S. Brock is still number one as a draw. I haven’t seen those numbers after his loss, but I would reason—looking at other top draws and their records—losses don’t always have a negative effect on their drawing ability. Even though Georges is more popular and more respected than Brock, I think Brock still has an edge in terms of his drawing capacity. I’m working hard to help Georges overtake him in that capacity, but I have to admit that he has the edge right now."

Georges St. Pierre's manager, Shari Spencer, is working hard to make him the top draw in the sport. Perhaps no fighter in the history of MMA has been able to break into the "mainstream" more than GSP. The French-Canadian has endorsement deals with mega companies like Gatorade and Under Armour. His recent trip to the Philippines was likened to the Beatles coming to town. He's currently coaching on season 12 of the popular Spike reality show "The Ultimate Fighter" and he is the UFC Welterweight Champion. Despite all of this, Brock Lesnar remains the highest draw on pay-per-view. Will his losing of the heavyweight title to Cain Velasquez at UFC 121, not to mention the manner in which he lost it, affect his drawing power? Will "Rush" finally surpass the former WWE star?
