Gus-Jones went 5 rounds. Does that mean that fight wasn't Fight of the Year last year?
Why does a decision on this mean its going to be a letdown?
PPV numbers are never reported but general consensus is that less than 10 have ever
hit the million buy mark. Stop trying to imply that the million PPV buy was the norm and not a complete outlier.
As for the casual talk, I think the PPV will do some great buys.
Most hardcore's will buy the card because its stacked with great fights
Even the prelim fights with Green-Masvidal, Cote-Wonderboy, and Doomsday-Ebersole will corral a lot of last minute buyers as they are fights setup for exciting finishes.
There is a lot of Casual interest in this as well. I don't buy your reasoning that casuals have not heard of the hype. I had my 40+ year old Mormon boss asking me what this is about and hes never watched an MMA event before. No one is saying it will be beat a million buys, but you are crazy if you think if it doesn't have a lot of hype behind it
