Belfort vs silva ppv buys??

With the news of Aldo staying put at UFC 149 that leaves Belfort vs Silva the main event at 147, is this a strong enough ppv main event for the UFC??. The ppv buys have got to be low for this card now with a main event like this, or will the UFC set up a last minute match to try and make the card abit stronger?.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

Yah it should have been a stellar card. What are ya gonna do...

They'll just book a smaller venue and it'll still do well. The Brazillian fans are probably the best. I never understood why one would spend hundreds of dollars and only show up for the main fights. The Brazillians are there from the get go to get their moneys worth!

Somewhere between 225,000 and 300,000.

I'm going to buy it, regardless but I know what everyone knows and that is sadly Wanderlei is gonna get ****ed up. They could add Machida vs. Bader and Shogun vs. Gustaffson and maybe go over 300,000 but I don't know. I kinda hope the two TUF Finales aren't on the PPV though.

Maybe they will put it on Fox and not have it be a PPV. I can't see them selling out a soccer stadium withou Aldo or Anderson though.

I doubt they'll be putting it on FOX since it's the finale for TUF Brazil - Which airs on GloboTV in Brazil... It's gonna stay a PPV, but they'll have to do something extra if they want this card to get even a half-way decent amount of buys
