1. Boxing: Oscar De La Hoya vs. Manny Pacquiao, Dec. 6, 1,250,000

2. UFC: Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Couture, Nov. 15, 1,010,000

3. Wrestling: WrestleMania, Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Paul “Big Show” Wight, March 30, 670,000

Lesnar clearly drawing alot of attention as his 3 events are in the top 5 PPV #'s so far in 2008. This of course does not take into account, Dec. 27, which should be a substantial draw.

I wonder if next year they will beat boxing with the Top PPV of the year. I'm assuming that DLH won't be in a massive fight next year, like he has been these past two years with Floyd and Pacman. And Boxing is struggling without DLH, he's their biggest draw by a street.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Hatton - Pacquiao is the biggest boxing PPV set for next year.

Not having an American in it will drop the alot.

Cant believe 84 was number 10! Before it happened and now I think it was the best event of the year



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

I agree. Pac-Man definately pulls viewers but doesn't quite have the draw that DLH did. I suspect this list will be dominated again by the UFC in '09 with Wrestlemania stuck in there somewhere.

Well it can't really be denied now, Lesnar seems to be great for the UFC.
