The Main Event had a lot of hype so it was obvious it would draw good numbers.

Nick Diaz certainly helped. I had discussions with people who never watch MMA about the press conference.

Cable/satellite providers take half off the top of the PPV.

While Blockbusters, Tower Records and a whole sleu of other brick and mortar companies are going out of business Zuffa is on an upward surge. Amazing really!

800K would be a very good number. Diaz helped in the sense that he was an intriguing opponent, but most of the credit goes to GSP as he is easily the biggest draw out of the current fighters.

At this point it would probably have to be Silva-GSP to break 1 million and nothing else.
