Can anyone confirm if in Brazil the fight cards are on a network/tv channel and don't contribute to PPV buys? I recall reading that somewhere but don't know if it applied to every event.
Don't know if brazilian sales counts. This is how it works here:
You can watch all events (including preliminary cards) by signing the Combate channel (54.00 reais/month, 1 real = 0.49 dollar). Buying just one event costs 69 reais. All cards placed in Brazil are aired on free television (TV Globo). Globo can also air 3 overseas events per year with a 30-minute delay.
