Default Can Zuffa create their own PPV draws?

Simple question, in nearly 12 years the only notable draw that have spent their entire career under the Zuffa umbrella are GSP and maybe Jon Jones Are Zuffa adept at creating their own stars without relying on a rub from PRIDE, WWE, Strikeforce ect...

Chuck, Tito and Randy were all good PPV draws were they not?

Indeed they were. But Tito was a draw after beating Shamrock. A big spike from 30k PPV's the number at 140 when Ken returned. That's often forgetten when Dana torts out his ''People phoned each other during Griffin v Bonner'' line. People were tuning in to see Ken, not too mention each made their debuts before ufc 33

How many UFC PPV buy rate featuring home grown talent have topped the buyrates of the guys who got a rub from elsewhere? Two guys who have fought exclusively in the UFC headlining the card..

Good point. UFC source a lot if their talent more than develop it.

Dana would probably give you a speil on it being an elite org

But now they HAVE to create 100% of their PPV draws... It's not my intention to be anti UFC. but can anyone name an event where the main or Co-main didnt feature a top nurtured Zuffa talent that topped 500 000 PPV buys...Zuffa have had 117 PPVs by my reckoning...
