Just proves Jones doesn't sell more than anything else. Maybe because the public looks down upon DUIing.

Those are decent numbers for such a crap fight. Sonnen makes people believe he had a chance. Or both he and Jones fool people into thinking there is a beef all of a sudden when they were just buddy buddy on a show for months. The whole thing was goofy and Bones and Sonnen are both jokes out of the cage.

They would have had more buys if they both kept their fake faces on during the show.

Jones would sell more if he didn't fight 185lb leftovers that already did decent PPVs against Anderson.

Those are decent numbers and right in line with Jones average ppv's.

GSP VS Silva will sell better than Jones vs Silva.

I don't think it has anything to do with his DUI. I think it has everything to do with this being an incredibly predictable fight. Try explaining to a casual fan they should chip in $10 to watch a middleweight fight outside his weight division, while coming off a loss, against the most dominant champ the LHW division has ever seen.

Look I am a 50/50 kind of guy when it comes to buying ppvs. I don't like to front the entire bill so usually some of my friends will chip on and we will order the cards that interest us. The hype for this title fight from the fan I know was simply not there. It was more like a "you guys gonna watch Sonnen get his ass kicked tonight?" kind of mentality.
