    February - UFC 208 (200,000) 15,628 in attendance.

    March - UFC 209 (300,000) 13,150 in attendance.

    April - UFC 210 (350,000) 17,110 in attendance.
    May - UFC 211 (300,000) 17,834 in attendance.

    June - UFC 212 (210,000) 15,412 in attendance.

    July - UFC 213 (130,000) 12,834 in attendance.

    July - UFC 214 (860,000) 16,610 in attendance.

    September - UFC 215 (N/A) 16,232 in attendance.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Predictions for 216 & 217 since they have a main event.

    October - UFC 216 (250k - 350k) I honestly think Ferguson/Lee could sell this card a little.

    November - UFC 217 (550k - 650k) 700k if Bisping really goes in on GSP during the lead up.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Overall the UFC is doing good on a local level. They're defenitly getting people to show up to these cards. Especially when you compare it other products like the WWE who can barely draw 5,000 for their shows.

    A few pics of the WWE's latest attendance.

    Overall, the UFC just needs to promote more fighters with personality, and the belts off of Nunes/Woodley/Conor as soon as possible.

    It's not bad year, and UFC 213 and UFC 215 were damaged by cancelled main events.

    Whut?

    Last year UFC did 5 million + shows.

    Conor alone could outdraw 4-5 of these PPVs by himself.

    doesn't hurt either, it's completely irrelevant in this case.

    yeah and that was the first time in the history of PPV that happened. Can't expect that every year.

    So? UFC copromoted May/Mac, I guess not for free.
    They need new stars and that's all. Sooner or later it will come.

    Of course not.

    Still doesn't make this year good.

    Other than the Jones/DC card, the UFC's ppv numbers this year have been atrocious.

    If you think they're atrocious then you're just not realistic, they're definitely not something to call home about, but by no means are they embarrassing. 300k/350k would be considered a major success for a boxing match with no huge name these days.

    UFC have only done 2 ppvs this year to hit that 350,000 figure.

    Compared to previous years, I'm going to guess that they are doing way lower numbers.

    I could be wrong though, I don't have the numbers in front of me.

    Yeah that makes sense. People like Conor need to go if the UFC wants big PPV numbers

    Definitely a down year, but they're making money on most of their events.

    You can't really compare it to 2016 which had 3 Conor PPVs. He's a bit of an anomaly. Just like when people say UFC fighters should get paid $100 million because Floyd has made that.

    UFC is fine. No they're not doing huge numbers but they're profitable
