    Honestly i think 226 will sell 400k at best , They should start to promote skilled and elite fighters not unskilled “models” like sage and paige lol

    dc and stipe are not the best ppv sellers unless you have jones in the fight.i think it is going to bomb like 225.

    Of course it will. There was a TUF season to build the fight up.

    No, cards sell on the UFC's brand or on the fighters' drawing power. UFC's brand doesn't mean anything anymore for PPVs because of cards like 224. Only 3-4 fighters have major drawing power. It won't do as bad as 224 or 225. DC and Stipe do have some drawing power. If 225 really did only 150k buys, I predict 200k for this card.

    Not really. It is a fight hard-core fans are very excited about. But the casuals probably don’t care. They are still probably hanging back and waiting to find out if or when Conor McGregor is going to fight again. There is no star power in the UFC right now.

    I really hope they are going to promote the shit out of this one. I wasn't impressed by their promotion on UFC 225. It's like they are cheaping out and putting less and less on promotion.

    Actually, the last event they did good promotion for was UFC 217.

    They did some decent promotion for Ngannou before he fought Miocic but that's about it.

    UFC 226 has

    Miocic Vs Cormier
    Holloway Vs Ortega
    NGannou Vs Lewis

    And several others

    Chiesa Vs Pettis
    Uriah Hall Vs Paulo Costa (Rising star)
    Medeiros Vs Mike Perry (Trailer trash)

    This card is FIRE. It really would be in their best interest to promote the hell out of this one.

    All signs point to it bombed hard.


    DC v Stipe isn’t going to sell either. 250k is where I would put it.

    This card will bomb just like 225. UFC spent 90% of ts budget promoting Conor all these years and now he's the only recognizable face in this sport. Only he'll get them PPV buys.
