Guess the Buyrate for UFC 157

How well do you think this PPV will do? At best, I see it doing 400,000. Dana is acting like this is going to be huge because of the coverage it is getting but I don't think it'll mean much when it comes to buys. More people will know who Ronda is, doesn't mean more people will like MMA. I could be completely wrong. Maybe casual fans really like cat fights. Who knows.

Buyrate aside, the main card looks like it'll be boring. Of course I really want to see the co-main event but I also really wanted to see Diaz vs Condit. Menjivar vs Faber looks to be the only exciting fight on paper.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

375k I think the fact Ronda isn't a bad looking chick will help her out.
