    I only watched Olyenik choke out Albini then I caught the full Lomachenko fight, what a scrap. He was fighting a much bigger fighter, he got knocked down, the fight was extremely close and then in the 10th all that body work Lomachenko did paid off. The guy might be the most skilled boxer I've ever seen. I had no desire to watch that terrible UFC fight card after seeing such greatness on display inside the boxing ring.

    Not even that. He is combining both networks which is a misleading statistic. The CMT viewers are basically people who forget to change the channel, not bellator viewers looking for the bellator card. The only number that matters, for actual viewership, is the Paramount one.

    Holly Holm, Cyborg, and Ronda have all done well in PPV buys. Nunes does bad and you want to say women aren't good for business. Good thing you don't run the UFC..

    LOL, I dont think so. UFC gets paid per show a flat rate, just cause Bellator did better ratings doesnt mean they made more money.

    UFC is getting 10 million a show from ESPN+ on their new deal, they're are doing 15 shows with them and that is the equivalent in revenues of a ppv that does close to 300K. Put that in perspective, the UFC will get the equal of a 300K ppv for a simple fight night on cable.

    And that is the first part of their new tv deal, they are still signing with either Fox or NBC for another estimate 200 million a year which will give him another 12/15 million per show.

    Still dying??
