GSP and Silva are the UFC's biggest draws. As I mentioned in a previous post, GSP is able to touch more fans because of his canadian roots. However, for a super fight, I don't think there would be a big difference.

The low end fan that only watches the UFC because GSP is making headlines in Qc probably won't watch any other event without GSP. But I don't think those guys represent a majority or high percentage, if anything, they're a small group.
The casual UFC fan will tune in for a superfight, no matter who it is.

So as I said, for a superfight, I don't think there would be much of a difference in the drawing of viewership.
