    Why would that affect PPVs around the country? Were some MMA fans in New York or Florida or Tennessee or Oregon grieving too much to buy the PPV?

    Losing the main the day before 215 probably did it no favors. And Tony vs Lee wasn't a huge big fight to draw in fans.

    About what was to be expected. They will need 217 to deliver.

    These are shows that would normally do at least like 200k. But it has been such a down year, it makes these rates even lower.

    Connor sells no matter who he fights so I don't see the UFC caring.

    That, too many weight classes, and commentators I don't care for. They are shit compared to before. I treat the UFC just like boxing now. I will watch some fights but few and far between now.

    well technically it got better from 215 to 216.........




    But yea, its been a rough year for them. Nate vs Conor will get booked cause of these shitty numbers. I also think GSP return fight hits 500 range

    This should be a lesson to everyone who acts like dozens of fighters are bigger than the brand. And like they should get paid more. And like they need to just shut up and fight, and not worry about being famous.

    Not surprising. However ...

    you can't attribute those 1M+ buyrates to Nunes. She fought Miesha Tate on UFC 200 and then Rousey, so it's the other fighters who are responsible for the big numbers.

    If Conor fights Tony it'll still do big numbers. Conor will sell no matter who he fights, and a title unification can be marketed to hell for sure.

    Ufc PPVs are simply doing bad nowadays because more and more people know how to do this on Google and put that 60 bucks into their piggy bank

    Because they’ve took a sharp turn down in the last few years, they keep getting lower and lower which means less profit which is never good for any business.

    213, 215, and 216 all bombed horribly.

    UFC needs money to survive, just like all other businesses and people.

    218 (Holloway-Edgar, Reem-Ngannou, Alvarez-Gaethje, Cejudo-Pettis) will probably be about 180k
