In our latest polling here at BJPENN.COM we asked our readers which upcoming main event you are most looking forward to.
With the UFC booking more shows than ever it’s sometimes hard to keep track of all the fights we have coming up. Pay-per-views, FUEL TV, FX and FOX are all a part of the UFC’s ever growing expansion and with that some of the best fights ever are scheduled for the upcoming months.
This is exactly why we wanted to know which fight, particularly, main event, you guys are most looking forward to watching.
After 2,781 votes were cast on our weekly poll, the fight the majority of you are most looking forward to is UFC 143’s Georges St. Pierre vs. Nick Diaz. This fight in particular took the majority of the vote with 1,265 (45.5%). This proves, at least in theory, that the UFC is correct with their claims of GSP being their biggest draw.
Rounding out second place is none other than this month’s UFC 141 main event between former champion, Brock Lesnar and newly signed UFC heavyweight, Alistair Overeem. The gargantuan main event took in 23.1% of fan votes (642 votes).
In third place, next weekend’s Jones vs. Machida took in 16.3% of the votes (452 votes) and Frankie Edgar vs. Benson Henderson came in at fourth with 8.3% (231 votes).
Tomorrow night’s main event between Michael Bisping and Jason Miller earned the fifth spot with 5.0% (138 votes), Aldo vs. Mendes cane in sixth with a meager 0.8% (23 votes), Guillard vs. Miller came in seventh with 0.6% (17 votes) and lastly, Melendez vs. Masvidal (Strikeforce) round out last place with 0.5% (13 votes).
All the fights listed are excellent matchups that I am sure everyone will enjoy, but when push comes to shove, the epic welterweight bout between GSP and Nick Diaz is the most anticipated bout in the upcoming months, and with good reason. Between the unpredictable antics of Nick Diaz and the dominating style of the champion, George St. Pierre, if your budget would only allow for one pay-per-view purchase, this would have to be it.
Thank you everyone who participated.
