    The boxing blockbuster event, Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao, shattered the previous record for total pay-per-view buys and now ranks as the highest-grossing pay-per-view of all time. Initial reports from distributors indicate that the event generated more than 4.4 million U.S. buys and more than $400 million in domestic pay-per-view revenue alone. With additional revenue from the live gate at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, international television distribution, sponsorships, closed circuit and merchandise sales, the event is expected to generate in excess of $500 million in gross worldwide receipts. The news was announced jointly by Showtime Networks Inc., a subsidiary of CBS Corporation, and HBO in conjunction with event promoters Mayweather Promotions and Top Rank, Inc.

    So what PPV has been confirmed then?

    Showtime and HBO are publicly owned, so they damn sure can't lie.

    Chael also called himself the King of PPV and the highest paid MMA fighter of all time.
    Chael also claims he is undefeated, despite having double-digit losses.
    Chael also accused Tito Ortiz of verbally tapping out during their fight in January.
    Chael claimed that if Jon Jones beat him at UFC 159, he was gonna reveal something intensely private and life-shattering about Jones' past that Jon didn't want anyone to know about (to no surprise, he didn't deliver on his promise.)

    Chael is a massive troll.

    It's surprising.. Chael ain't no goof when it comes to PPV buys numbers and stuff like this he is very business savvy.

    Not yer sure what to think about this info he also suggested the speculation numbers we get for MMA aren't close to reality (real they are less).

    Why can't I go anywhere without hearing from Chael Sonnen? This guy is a nobody and a cheater. He's a pathological liar, too.

    He should move up in the mountains and stop bothering everybody.

    Yeah, I really do think he is a pathological liar, and also a sociopath. I don't listen to anything he says anymore. Funnily, I used to be a fan of his awhile back.

    It's true. This is why Mayweather owes the IRS.

    Chael Sonnen keeps saying Mayweather's PPV numbers and his networth is a lie he did it again today and said the only thing truthful is his spending habits.

    Chael makes it out like Floyd was only getting paid 5 to 10 million a fight like he only made 40 million dollars his entire career, yet Floyd showed a ESPN reporter his bank slip and it was well over 100 million dollars and he has multiple bank accounts with money in them.

    yeah Chael is a good trash talker probably the best in the game, but his story telling is weird he reminds me of that clout chaser Keith Middlebrook who keeps paying papparazi to interview him about Floyd Mayweather and claiming he is the lead on the money team yet Floyds business partners never heard of the guy before.

    I think Chael said that he spoke to Manny after a bible study or church service at the hotel and warned him about Marquez being juiced lmao

    Ask Dave Meltzer!

    If he says it done 1.8million then that's the official number.

    It's true. Chael is both those things.

    He still makes me laugh though. But you can't take some of what he says seriously.
