*Ufc 155 is tbd

2009 & 2010 were killer years obviously. 2009 had UFC 100 and then 2010 had two Lesnar title fights and the Rashad/Rampage fight. 2012 was better than 2011 but on total buys (two less shows) and average.
I broke down 2009-2012 for any card over 500k buys, as you can see Rampage, Evans, and GSP cause major jumps when they fight.

Ufc Events Attended:

Ufc Fight Night: Davis Vs Nogueira, Ufc 131, Ufc 143, Ufc 148, Ufc on Fox 5, Ufc 156, Ufc on Fox 8
