PPV buys for 148 - prediction

Prediction.

This is the most hyped up UFC event ever but I think it will fall shy of UFC 100 PPV numbers which was estimated at 1.7.

My guess is 1.2 million.

Im interested to see if thats true. My guess right now is Fox sports jumped the gun claiming that. Possibly because of what Dana said at the post fight conference.

Yeah, I would say they would have to have a reliable source to be making such statements, but this is Fox afterall

Id say 750 - 900k PPV buys although I think it will be at the lower end of that. You have to look at the PPV trend as a whole its not going to jump from 300-400k to 1.5 million. I will be happy to be wrong though.

It probably did very well considering it set a United States live gate record.

I have a hard time seeing this sell more than a PPV that had Brock, GSP, and a TUF Coaches fight on it.

My guess is just shy of a million, 900k+

And it was all Chael Sonnen, which is pretty funny, without him trash talking Anderson the way he did, and created this hate between them, not to mention going 5 rounds last time. Anderson should thank him for making him millions, since I don't think Anderson has topped 800k any other time, and I doubt he will ever again unless its Anderson/JBJ.

Not too many fighters can sell 800k-1000k consistently, GSP and Brock were the only ones. Rampage was a pretty huge draw also, considering he didn't have the belt for too long. Anyways, its cool to see Anderson finally get some recognition, being sponsored by Nike/BK in Brazil. Wonder how much he gets from that alone, must be a nice amount.

Sonnen did a good job building this fight up. Would never have sold nearly as well if it weren't for him.
