Naturally, the main card has the fighters with the largest Twitter following. Aldo (867K) is the headliner, but it’s his countryman Belfort who has the most followers with 1.55 million. The dropoff is a major one from there.
Silva is at 131K and Gadelha has 130K while Marquardt has 104K. No other fighter has close to 100K followers. In fact, three have less than 250. That tells you a lot of what you need to know about the lack of widespread appeal for this card
On average, the fighters on the card have 6.6 UFC fights on their resumes. Belfort and Marquardt are tops, follow by Holloway and Alcantara. Here’s the complete list:
