I have to disagree with you that it would reach 600k buys...

Hendo/jones would have had similar numbers to Belfort/jones 400-500k, dispute the Ufc's wishes, the fans don't buy into Jon Jones..

The rumoured 3000 tickets sold for Ufc 151 is telling,

Ufc 139 sold 290k buys, And that's including Rua/Hendo, wanderlei and Faber who is a decent draw..also following the marketing hype of Ufc on Fox #1...

Had Ufc 151 gone ahead with Hendo/Jones, Ufc 152 would have got Ufc 147 or 150 #s 140-190 buys
