Lots of people mocked my totally not gay love for Ken Shamrock last week when I made the argument that Ken Shamrock was one of if not the biggest money maker for the UFC. I was originally gonna dig up some numbers, but instead I cried myself to sleep with your nasty comments ringing in my ears. But now, lo and behold: Ken Shamrock himself dug up the numbers to prove that I’m smart, U R dumb, fuck you, Shamrock rules:
And one of the facts are right here, Dana White says that Ken Shamrock did not make money for the UFC, but Randy Couture did. And Randy Couture is a great man, but for Dana White to say that about me, the facts are right here:
Shamrock-Ortiz I, UFC 40: 150k Pay-Per-View buys – double what Zuffa had done so far at that time, the highest in ’96.
Shamrock Vs. Ortiz II, UFC 61: 775k Pay-Per-View buys, second-highest UFC Pay-Per-View to date in history. Second-highest – no sports Pay-Per-View in history was first until De La Hoya and Mayweather.
Ultimate Fighter 3 averaged 1.7 for season average. For other seasons is 1.2. That included Randy Couture and Chuck Liddell – two of their biggest champions, we still outdid them.
So now Ken Shamrock and Ortiz III – rated top out of 5.7 million viewers during 9:30 to 9:45 period making it the most watched UFC event in the promotion’s history up to that date.
Now, what Dana White was saying was that Ken Shamrock did not make money for the UFC, but Randy Couture did. He knows these facts. He knows what I just quoted off. He deliberately lied to hurt my credibility. He knows these numbers.
