UFC 159: Jones vs Sonnen PPV estimates come in at 520-550,000 buys

Quote:
Dave Meltzer is reporting at MMA Fighting that the projections for the card are in the 520,000 - 550,000 buy range. Here are some of the details per Meltzer's report:

If those numbers hold up, it would be in line with most expectations going into the fight. Sources in UFC had, well before the fight, indicated the company's budgetary prediction for the show was 500,000.

...

There was hope for bigger numbers in the days after the fight, due to the strong ratings of UFC 159 shoulder programming. The weigh-ins were the second-highest rated since Fuel began airing. The event also drew the highest ratings for post-fight coverage of a pay-per-view on Fuel. Prelim match ratings on FX were 32 percent above average.

The number would be the company's second largest of 2013, trailing UFC 158, with Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz, but ahead of the now No. 3 event of the year, UFC 157, headlined by Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche.

Was hoping for lower, but I guess this will have to do.

Atleast it's not what you feared it could have been. Still more then it should have been.

That sucks, a champion like Bones and a trash talker like Chael should be able to pull at least 800k. 520-550k is pathetic, UFC PPV buyrates used to have higher standards.

I never knew how much UFC made per event but I thought will be way much more ...
If you think about it ... they make like 1mil 1.5 mil / gate
and 550k ppv... they pay like 1 mil, 1.5 mil to fighters , staff...
Thats all they make ? like 500k / event ?

Um, it's the # of buys, not the amount made.

No, it was likely 550k buys, @ $60 or whatever per buy. Plus gate. Plus endorsements. Plus souveniers. Plus... plus ... plus...
