Do you want the highest grossing or more PPV Buys? One doesn't not necessarily equal the other.

True. It would probably be from 91 or 92 as both were over a million buys and the UFC had the biggest sponsors that they've ever had (Harley Davidson, Bud Light, etc). Not sure how they did at the gate, but I'm sure it sold out or got really close to.

Ya, gate factors in plus the fact that 92 had a triple main event therefore it probably had a larger expenditure in fighter salaries.

Well, costs are not figured into gross revenue... only when considering net revenue ;)

True story, it's too hard to gauge considering a lot of pay in undisclosed anyways.
