    The early PPV estimates are surprisingly strong, as the estimate was only slightly below the last two shows, the Daniel Cormier vs. Anthony Johnson and the Stipe Miocic vs. Junior Dos Santos show at 290,000 buys. Keep in mind that anything this early could be off 20 percent, but even then, most figured this show as a 200,000 level show and every indicator would show this probably beat that number by a solid amount.

    Google trends point to a similar level of buys as it was very slightly below the last two shows.
    Google searches of 500,000 were also an encouraging sign as that usually indicates a number closer to 300,000 than 200,000. It was clearly the main event alone as this show had no marquee support. It looks like there were enough hardcore fans who bought this as a serious fight and that either McGregor made Aldo more of a star, and/or people have followed Holloway enough and seen his exciting wins to care about him chasing the title. The indications are the show did huge numbers in Hawaii, but that state doesn’t have the population base to make that much of a difference even if it was a big deal there.

    So it was in the area of bigger fights (at least as far as expectations go)
    Good sign for Max

    I'm surprised, I didn't expect this to do much better than DJ's 100k PPVs

    I thought this one would bomb hard because besides the main event this card was absolutely terrible

    It's interesting and relevant to MMA, get off Sherdog if you're "too cool" to talk about MMA

    I liked it. Just thought that it didn't have the names for the casuals to buy it.

    Agreed. Awesome that Max got decent exposure. He has a chance to become a pretty popular fighter, is young and should stay at or near the top for some time.

    Just keep him of the microphone. Definitely better with his fists than his mouth.

    Those aren't very good numbers.

    Anything under 300,000 and No ppv points for fighters right?

    290 thousand for DC/AJ that is awful. Amazing the UFC gave GSP shit about a new deal. Every time he fought you had 700 thousand easy, and usually more..

    Contracts vary. It might be 250k or 350k?

    The Conor McGregor effect

    There's a reason they featured him in every countdown and preview.

    Losing to Conor is the biggest commercial success either fighter has had.
