    This is probably the greatest fight in the history of the UFC. Could this possibly do 1 Million PPV buys? If not, then close.

    How could it not with the GOAT fighting for the title?

    If they put Rhonda on the same card, this could be devastating for PPV. They might break it.

    Maybe if they pair it up with Brock's return fight or CM Punk's debut.

    Unless they put Brock Lesnar on the undercard, there is zero chance it breaks 700k.

    Just because sherdog rides his nuts doesn't mean everyone does, Aldo has never been a huge draw i will be shocked if this goes over 600k unless they put CM Punk on the card or something

    I don't think cm punk will be ready to fight but Brock is done with the WWE in April. Maybe Brock vs overeem II as a co main event?

    I would think it gets more like 500K. Which is pretty good these days and much more than Aldo usually draws.

    500k, at best. Probably around 400k

    Remember, Ireland doesn't pay for PPV

    Greatest fight in the history of the UFC? Are you joking? The only reason I'm looking forward to it is because I want to see Conor face a quality opponent. And no, I don't think it gets close to 1 Mil unless there is another huge draw on the card, because Conor can't bring that in on his own. Even with a huge co-headliner, still probably wouldn't be close

    So there will be 400k PPV buys but we will be told how 10 millon people were watching in Ireland, it literally shut Ireland down

    the majority of people don't like watching little guys and girls fight, especially headline, and conner mcgregory is hardly a draw to anyone but his legion of shertards

    No chance of a million. It will be by far Aldo's biggest PPV seller. he's topped out around 330,000 in the past.

    * McGregor
    * Ronda

    And no, they will be lucky to get close to 500 K IMO

    Overrated and overhyped fight that's not going to live up to this make believe hype.

    Even if zyGOAT were actually capable of beating Aldo (which I do not believe is the case), he'd have to win for another 5 years of consistent fighting in order to even be considered a great.

    Zygotes should not be given the rights or praise of a person. zyGOATS should not be given the rights and the praise of great men.

    Perfect

    Why is there no chance of a million? No chance?! Of course there is. Do you know how much they will hype this? I'm not saying it will happen but dismissing it out of blind hatred for Conor seems crazy to me. People on here also said Dana was being optimistic at 750k buys for jones v dc. Estimates said circa that amount. I wouldn't be that shocked it it reached 1m

    They will get to 600k-700K with only Aldo Vs Conor, maybe if they put some strong names like Rashad, Rampage etc they could get to 800K

    maybe 550k 600k.. but it really depends on who else is also on the card, if its a really strong co-main and other top fights then it could do very well

    It could if they stacked the card properly (aka a better main event) but knowing the UFC it'll be more like Misha Tate vs somebody as your co-main, some old heavyweight, a flyweight bout nobody cares about and instead of a 5th fight we are going to have a 15 minute CM Punk interview.
