Eye vs Davis is a preliminary while Thompson vs Whittaker is on the main card. Makes sense.

Pretty much this. There's no debate that more people probably see the free show and then drop off when it comes time to pay money. When all things are equal, "free TV" will beat out PPV.



Being on PPV though is more of a status symbol thing in some respects. If you're on free TV then you're JUST a fighter. Even if you're the opener on a PPV, it's held in a higher regard in the eyes of the public.
