    The median revenue is more informative as to the overall health of the UFC's PPV income, as using average revenue could misrepresent everything due to outlier PPVs. Revenue is used as opposed to buyrates given the difference in PPV cost and split with cable provider.

    Correlations: the UFC had better median PPV revenues when number of events ranged from 20-33; I consider 2015 an outlier given the median revenues of 2014, 2016, and 2017.

    Interesting to note that the UFC had better median PPV revenues 10 years ago with half as many number of events.

    You put on twice as many events and make slightly less per show. Mind blowing stuff over here guys.

    I'm missing something, only 12 PPVs in 2018?

    And this does not even include the UFC's growing revenue streams. (Fight pass/National & InternationalNetwork Deals/Sponsors/Etc).

    Clearly the UFC is dying <Lmaoo>

    Conor had little to do with 2015's median revenue (evident by 2016's median revenue).

    I never said it was, but you can see how the number of events are affecting their PPV revenue.

    I was not directing this at you. I actually think this proves they're doing well, also the rule of supply and demand should be considered, the more events the less demand. Except of course the more events the more & more casuals or non-fans are exposed which should pay off in the long run.

    In addition to their growing revenue streams one should consider the fact that USADA (which I am completely in favor of) has certainly affected their bottom line. The impact USADA has however can be expected to go down as fighters understand the importance of having their supplements approved.

    All in all I think this is an optimistic report on the UFC's growth (when all factors are taken into account).

    so your one column is just PPV, and another column in the same graph is overall number of events. That wouldn't fly in grade 10 math.

    its the middle value of a series of values

    as opposed to mean which is the average of all the values

    so if you had

    1
    10
    22
    66
    77
    99
    90,000

    66 would be the median, the mean (average) would be about 11,000

    It's not dying, but it is in trouble.
