    And yet I'd bet money the average American couldn't name a current women's tennis player outside of the Williams sisters.

    what did they expect? they were on the verge of making it a FOX card until they got Cyborg on it, so by doing that they think watching Cyborg crush a can is worth $65? Apparently it isn't.

    Unless Sharapova retired you'd be wrong.

    Most of those fights were very tough to watch. It wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if it did bad numbers, because the quality of the fights would directly reflect those numbers.

    Umm... you could say the same thing about Tyson and Ronda.

    Ultra dominant fighters who destroy their opponents are typically draws.

    The geniuses at WME strike again. They possess the greatest fight roster ever assembled and can’t do shit with it.

    Cheating multiple times, including attempting to alter a weigh in scale. And all three times she was busted it was to fight a smaller woman.

    That is not just cheating, that is utterly pathetic.

    There are no numbers within 48hrs

    Plus if you look into it, this is the "report"
    Early internal projections from inside the UFC during fight week, show UFC 222 doing worst than expected at the box office and on PPV. The final UFC 222 buy-rate may be the lowest for the promotion in over 10 years.

    So before the PPV someone said the total looks bad to someone else ;)

    No one should be surprised. There was plenty of talk BEFORE the card that it might struggle to break 100K buys..
