    Social media following is NOT a measure of drawing power. If it were, Paige VanZant would be ATG. That's number one.

    Number two, Instagram is the exception to the rule. Punk has millions of followers on Twitter, for example. It still doesn't matter.

    If the guy weren't worth what he's worth, Fox would not have begged him to work for them.

    Done

      So what exactly is a measure of his drawing power? The PPV that did 450k buys in a year where five different UFCs did over a million, or the PPV that did 250k buys in a year where Conor/Khabib did 2.4 million? in what ****ing universe is CM Punks brief and basically inconsequential presence in the UFC the same as the two ****ing biggest boxing PPVs of the last 6 years not involving any active boxers anyway? The biggest boxing match of 2017 didnt have anything to do with current active boxers, the biggest boxing match of 2020 had nothing to do with current active boxers. The first boxing PPV of 2021 has ****ing nothing to do with current active boxers and unless we get AJ/Fury finally theres a good chance one of these freakshow cards will be the biggest boxing PPV of the year too. This would be like if in the 1970s Ali et al couldnt draw **** and the biggest boxing matches were David Bowie vs one of the ****ing Bee Gees or Joe Louis coming out of retirement to fight Burt Reynolds.

        Mir shouldn't have taken this fight. If he doesn't quit, this will be worst beating of his whole career.

          Mir is the same height as Cunningham and they're both old as ****.

          Cunningham UD's him.
          UD? i thought it would be a lock that he KO's him. Isnt Mir a submission guy? matey cant box for **** and he has no chin. USS sparks this dude out cold.

            Sure, but he's more of a natural heavyweight than Cunningham and Cunningham was never the hardest hitter. Also, Steve is pretty damn long in the tooth at this point as well.

            I expect them to both look like ****, but Steves actual experience in boxing will allow him to box, move, cruise to a UD.
