Not surprising. There was only 1 real title fight since most didnt care about the flyweights. And the main event was considered a mismatch on paper. So an average 400k seems right.

I don't get why people always tout this as if it's an accomplishment. It's the fastest growing because it's the newest sport, how is that something to brag about? If you want to talk about size it's still one of the smallest sports in the world...

MMA isn't the newest sport. There have probably been a thousand sports which have never took off since then. By your standards, we should watch out for XARM to be on PPV any day now.

Watch UFC 1 and watch UFC 153. Boxing has been around for what? A minimum of 100 years? MMA has been around for like 20, and the UFC is already beating the majority of world title fights in boxing.

Silva/Belfort did 725k; that is more than Rashad and Bones which is his biggest number thus far. Bones just isn't a huge draw yet. He does consistently good numbers but he has only really been in the spotlight for about a year and a half now.

These Silva/Bonnar promos are great I wouldn't be surprised if it did 500k despite almost no one thinking Bonnar has any kind of shot at winning.

Bonnar is selling the fuk out of this to me. And then couple that with a fantastic undercard, it will do pretty well.
