    Of course it would've done better!

    Bad blood between Colby and the Brazilian people would've done at least over 150k buys. It's not much but it's much better than 85k......

    Nine finishes in a row has to be above average.

    I doubt it would have done better *just by removing the headliner*

    If people wanted to see the rest of the card they would have paid for it and tuned out before the main event.

    Nunes not being a draw doesn't mean that wmma as a whole doesn't sell, that's like me saying the men don't sell because of Mighty Mouse and Woodley but we know there's big draws like Conor.


    Cyborg v Holly did 350k.......the same as Stipe v Ngannou/DC v Volkan.

    We are up to 11 Champions. There is no reason why every PPV can't have at least 2 title fights. Pair up the weaker ones with the stronger ones.

    Or if there where a main event consisting of female fighters who where even remotely popular?

    So it hasn't got to do with wmma vs mma but it's more a case of popular/known fighter vs unpopular/unknown.

    It's too late for that. The UFC would face a lot of backlash for removing WMMA from the mainstream audience. Even people who don't watch MMA (think CNN/MSNBC) will chime in to criticize the UFC's decision.

    True, especially in SJW-infested America.
    We have reached the point of no return.

    This fucking sucks.

    But seperate WMMA cards would be benefitial to everyone, imo.

    If anything, WMMA should be used as co-main events (assuming that it is a title fight).

    If ufc is still alive after 30 years we will have former men vs former women title fight , also straight mans would not be allowed to hit gay mans in the fight because of "homophobia" lol

    That's a lot of sexist, misogynist pigs out there who didn't buy this great card for the only reason that they are intimidated by strong, powerful women who would kick their asses.
