The Real Main Event
Hate to say it but Whittaker's career seems to be going the Cain route
But sillier. Cain never had to pull out of a fight due to chicken pox or a hernia magically appearing 24 hours before a fight.
Both are sad but Bobby's is downright absurd.
Yeah you really can't make this shit up
UFC is apparently offering refunds to anyone who bought tickets.
From the bar to the cage, baby!
yeah, a little suspect to figure out u have a hernia suddenly.
WTF are they going to do about Refunds ? Will there be ? All those people , last minute emergency ? Not sure if UFC is liable.
Thanks , wasnt sure.
Over but it needs to beat 85k to not be the lowest PPV of modern era UFC (Nunes/Pennington)
I think Izzy vs Anderson brings it over 100k
But what shitty start to UFC's PPV year
Meltzer has the O/U at 125k btw
A few things ...
this was the first PPV with ESPN promotion behind it, so should add a few more buys.
But I wonder how the ESPN-era fans feel about a main falling through?
I could and probably am very wrong, but i can't see Silva doing under 300.
They would go absolutely insane if it does that
i don't know how others felt, but I thought this would do 300k+ before the main event loss.
There was a decent buzz & with no Jan PPV card I thought that helped
Plus ESPN exposure.
If it breaks 200k I would think UFC would be happy, 300k even more
But i can see about 150k
I was most stoked about the main event. But all the casuals I know were talking about Silva fight. Crazy to think 300k is a homerun now.
After the belt thing I don't believe Whittaker suddenly had a hernia...
Mayweather vs Berto did 400k in between Pac & Mac.
PPV is a tough sell unless it is an event
The fact that UFC is still profitable with PPV is amazing considering both MMA & PPV interest is down.
With almost all of boxing leaving PPV, I wonder if that hurts or helps UFC going forward
That was a terrible uncompelling matchup. You need a dance partner to sell.
Usually that is correct, but ...
Conor vs anybody will do 1m buys though
Ronda did 900k vs Bethe a month earlier than Mayweather/Berto
Told you motherfuckers
All he had to do was take it from a 125er.
And Henry couldn't do shit about it
