    Just read they only reporting 85,000 buys for UFC 224, which is worst buyrate in 10yrs!
    Not surprising, but I thought the the card well surpassed my expectations

    Shouldn’t have been that many for that sheet card

    225 & 226 should make up for it

    I don't trust the accuracy of any "news" that comes from whoever it is that does Cyborg's social media postings. There is quite a history of false "news" from that source.

    Cyborg: Nunes is not a draw!

    I think Cyborg beats her up bad to be honest.

    When a preliminary card fighter ... fights on the UFC PPV main event...

    who fooking gave "Rocky" the title shot needs to be fired.... most undeserving title shot....in UFC HISTORY !!!!!

    probably was some moron in marketing... "2 gay fighters headlining a PPV ... once in a life time "...

    So you don't think that Pennington being on a four fight win streak, the most recent win of which was over former bantamweight champion Miesha Tate, had any relevance for Rocky deserving a title shot?

    So we had 10 pages of pontificating based on nothing more substantial than some guesswork which may or may not turn out to be close to an actual figure ...... but never mind, let's do it again, woohoo.
