UFC 66 Draws Over A Million PPV Buys, Breaks Other Records

Reported by Matthew Boone on 01/31/2007

The following is an article from www.*******.com:

UFC 66 Destroys PPV Buys, Live Gate Records

According to the Wrestling Observer newsletter, UFC 66 "Liddell vs. Ortiz 2" fell shy of the expected 1.2 million pay-per view buys, but not by much.

UFC 66, held on December 30th in Las Vegas, Nevada, did over a million buys on PPV - making it the biggest MMA event in PPV history.

The records didn't stop getting smashed there. There was 14,607 in attendance making a live gate of $5.4 million, some two million dollars more than the previous live gate-record.

-----------------------------------------------------------
Dana and the gang are kicking ass and taking names..gotta love it, the UFC is putting MMA at the top.

Good post man. Chuck and Tito are unbelievable draws. Imagine the drop off for 67? Silva vs Lutter....

well thats the title fight. 67 is still a good draw b/c people wanna see rampage and crocop make their debuts. plus GSP was gonna fight on this card until the injury. its a pretty good card.

Yeah, that's a great find.

New Years Eve cards tend to get huge draws, that's one of the reasons why the UFC used 2 huge names like Chuck and Tito for that card.

There will be a drop off at UFC 67, it's super bowl weekend and this is America.

IowaMFSFan has a little shameless behaviour in the past
The date is kinda of weird. Its not even Jan 31 2007 yet. Even in a different time zones it wouldnt be the 31st yet.

I thought that was peculiar.
