    Dana Claimed "way more then 2 million".

    Do you believe him? If it was way more the 2 million, then why not just state the actual number as it was your "biggest event ever" ?

    I am not sure if I believe it.

    The leadup wasnt exactly spectacular either. And Khabib is not a draw. I would be surprised if it did 2 million buys. But even at 1.2-1.4M thats still huge by todays PPV standards.

    We’ll never know for sue. The buzz didn’t feel the same as before the 2nd Diaz fight, and WMe has even more influence to persuade Iole to fudge ppv numbers.

    Edit: I meant Meltzer not Iole

    There'd be no accurate way of telling (if people buy the PPV and watch with friends, or watch at a bar), but I'd be intetested in buys compared to viewers. The latter number will obviously be much higher, but there's no way to determine an exact figure.

    Wtf? You didn't research it in the internet first before posting? It's clearly 2.4 mil as reported. And it's the 4th biggest ppv event in ppv history.

    0/10 fail

    It's Dana so he probably said the high end of the range, but he's in the ball park.
