Top Selling UFC PPVs of All-Time

Dana White has vehemently denied that the man pictured above, Mr. Brock Lesnar, was the UFC’s  best pay-per-view draw of all-time.  White claims that title belongs to Georges St-Pierre.  While it is true that GSP is the company’s best draw currently, the facts just don’t support White’s claim that GSP sold better than Lesnar (but, then again, White never lets facts get in the way of an argument).  How else can you explain why Lesnar, not GSP, is the headliner on four out of the top ten selling UFC cards of all-time?  A coincidence?!

Here are the top 20 selling UFC PPV cards of all-time.  This list will be constantly updated, so check back often.
