UFC 125 does 350,000 buys

UFC 125 was a barrel scraping effort for the promotion that has gone mostly glossed over. Nearly 6,000 tickets were comped and over 1,000 went unsold for an event that took place in Las Vegas, Nevada -- the modern Mecca of MMA. Preliminary reports on the event's pay-per-view buy rate have it tabbed at only 350,000 buys.
Worst buyrate for a UFC title fight since UFC 90. Now I know why Rampage and Frank Mir are on the undercard for the rematch.

The rematch will do better numbers. Believe it or not, the casuals buy in to what the media and the hardcore fans are saying about the fight.

Every hardcore fan was dumping on the fight, calling it garbage so the casuals didn't buy either.

Nobody wants to see two featherweights punch eachother 5,000 times.

A lot of people missed some great fights if that is the case(that source looks sketchy and I see it mentioned no where else).

UFC 125 had no big names.

Edgar and Maynard, no one knows of them much or are not interested in them. Edgar was really under the radar in many peoples eyes(casual fans) until he beat BJ Penn.

It was a great main event, and many of the casual fans missed out but this just shows us again that the UFC needs big names to sell even a good PPV card.

Thats why Brock,GSP,Rampage and a few others make the big bucks in the UFC.

If i had to pay for the ppv i wouldnt have bought 125, turns out it was amazing.

Luckily we get all UFC events for free because it is banned on television

Not surprised by that number. I'm in Atlanta and there was no buzz whatsoever about this card.

Neither guy is ever likely to be a draw like BJ Penn was, but the rematch should gain much more interest. Not surprised the arena didn;t sell out because the ticket prices in the US are pretty damn high, but 350k PPVs is weak.
