Nah, that sounds low. Maybe, because it's the holidays,more people will consider buying the PPV, and THEN they wonder:
"hmmm I wonder who's fighting... OMFG lol its Furrest Griffan and the black guy who KO'd Liddlle!!! ANd there's that other black guy who KO'd Chuck Liddlle who's fighting that Brazilian who fought an awesome fight with Chuck Liddle!! ANd there's the two TUF coaches I think... sh!t I'm so buying this!"
And then buy it. I think that the UFC don't want to spend much money on the MArketing AND on the names. At ufc 91, only Randy and Lesnar were the highly paid fighters on the card mind you. While here, we have 3 fights with star-fighters which will cost the UFC a great deal more money. So they expect the fights to more or less sell themselves and pay themselves off. Marketing perhaps wouldn't have been that profitable...
Anyways, if the casual fan could just use the internet to check the fight cards and check up the fighters on wikipedia or whatever, we wouldn't have this marketing problem we have now...
