Is there any way to see how many people watched this in the UK on ESPN?

Seems most UFC events draw between 15-30,000 on ESPN.

Luckily UFC events are still free here, so lucky me I guess

But 350.000 buys is absolutely abysmal, poor Edgar, noone ever gives him a chance :/

Sherk did by not taking him down in their fight and the UFC did by shafting Maynard and giving Edgar a shot first.

350k isn't really bad when you consider the fact that UFC holds a PPV at least once a month. I think we're just used to hearing those gigantic numbers from Lesnar, GSP etc

That is a really good point that never crossed my mind before with the increasing number of PPV's been hosted by the UFC I guess a lot of people are been more selective about which ones to buy and don't just buy them all.
