    Canelo with two PPVs has garnered 2.5m buys
    The UFC with 9 PPVs so far has only brought in 2.41m buys.

    UFC 208-200K
    UFC 209-250K
    UFC 210-300K
    UFC 211-300K
    UFC 212-167K
    UFC 213-125K
    UFC 214-850K
    UFC 215-100K
    UFC 216-120K
    =2.412m

    Canelo-Chavez Jr-1.2m
    Canelo-GGG-1.3m
    =2.5m

    If we were to add the rest of the boxing ppvs:
    GGG-Jacobs-170k
    Canelo-Chavez Jr-1.2m
    Ward-Kovalev II-130k
    Canelo-GGG-1.3m
    Mayweather-McGregor 4.4m
    =7.2m

    Boxing is having a banner year.

    Since Mayweather-McGregor, the UFC has yet to have a ppv do over 130k ppvs. I think the casuals have walked away from the sport. Why not? McGregor did.

    Anyway UFC 217?

    Prediction? 325k ppvs

    I think 217 will do 500-600k.

    If Conor had fought Mayweather in MMA and sold those 4.4, the exact opposite would be the case.

    Not actually boxings best year, its just that boxing is never on the fringe of collapsing because of one guy while MMA is clearly on its way out

    I think one thing that will hurt 217 is there is FREE UFC cards on back to back weekends before it


    Ppl might get their MMA fix and not feel the need to pay....

    Those "trash cards" are better than Canelo vs Chavez, that's for sure.
