    1. UFC 246: Usman vs. Masvidal 1.3M
    2. UFC 251 McGregor vs. Cerrone 1M
    3. UFC 253 Adesanya vs. Costa 700K
    4. UFC 249 Gaethje vs. Ferguson 700K
    5. UFC 254 Khabib vs. Gaethje 675K

    Source MMA Focus

    I'm floored that Khabib vs. Gaethje didn't do better. I thought the matchup was intriguing enough to have stronger PPV buys. I'm shocked that Adesanya vs. Costa didn't break a milli. I blame the UFC for a weak build-up for that fight.

    Had Burns fought in UFC 246 instead of Masvidal I wonder how many buys that PPV would've generated? I'm guessing Masvidal added an additional 700K PPV buys.

    No way Usman vs mad sold that much and if it did it's bc of mad not Usman.

    Being on in the middle of the day severely hurt 254.

    Masvidal is a massive draw.

    The rest of those numbers aren't bad really. Million buy cards are the exception rather than the rule. The majority of PPV's don't break 500k.

    Numbers don’t lie. Conor vs Masvidal would be the biggest PPV of all time.

    Yeah, Masvidal is a star and the fight against Nate/BMF belt just added to his popularity.

    With a normal start time UFC 254 would of hit at 1 mill give or take. Not sure why ppl are still questioning why it was low knowing the start time

    Didn't think about the start time, I'm wondering why Dana chose it.

    Afternoon ppvs always struggle. There were literally thousands of people on social media who were shocked it was in the afternoon.

    Didn’t PPVs move to ESPN+ after the last Conor fight?

    if so I would have expected a much bigger drop frankly, not sure how reliable those numbers are.

    Either way you’re comparing samples and oranges.

    I think to cater to his international fan base, plus I believe a bunch of rich important ppl that support him came to watch

    Sadly I just assumed the start time, and Didn't realize it was on till the main card hit. Alot of last second scrambling to get everyone together and get food ready it was insane.. I hope they never do that again.

    -UFC 246 Usman vs Mas had 3 title title fights on it, and was the most stacked card of the year. Plus Mas is a real star imo.
    -UFC 251 Cerrone vs McGregor was a complete shit show of a card (go look it up). It's crazy that thing sold 1 million PPV's
    -UFC 254 Khabib VS Justin had a shit time slot or it would of sold 1 million PPV's imo....

    The vast majority Khabib's fan base is Russian. Russian's do not PPV. This is why you never see a UFC event in Russia. He is not that popular in the US. Not surprised by the PPV, actually surprised it is a high as it is.
