    Way more bars then i expected are showing it down by me. Factoring in that I'm gonna say 120k buys. What do you guys think?

    If they do 50K they'll be lucky - I expect 25K.

    About as many buys as a good TNA wrestling PPV.

    Too lazy to Google but it won't be a lot.

    Oh yeah, all those bars that aren't showing the PPV are gonna do wonders for their buyrate.

    50-100k.

    Could see it doing less or a bit more, its hard to tell, Rampage is the sell here so this will tell you how big a draw Rampage still is. Also you have a good HBO boxing fight on that night but they do luck out since I believe there is no NBA Playoffs on Sat night.

    SO that will def free up some sports fans.

    But I think 50-100k is fair.

    Correct Game 7's would be on Sunday and Game 1's would be on Sunday (Heat) or Monday (Spurs)

    and

    The NHL Hockey conference final is on at 1p.m. so it'll be over before the fights start, so there is a pretty big sports void for those not wanting to watch boxing on HBO this Saturday night. All the more reason the Alvarez issue is a shame, they had everything going for them.

    The ones I called form the site aren't getting it, hoping someone comes through last minute, because the closest Dave and Busters is 2 hours away, so i'll be stuck buying it most likely.

    That's my concern. Bellator put that list on their site but didn't make it clear that it was NOT necessarily a list of bars televising the PPV.

    Yea, they would be wise to put a warning of sorts on their (Bellators) website because by them having the link it feels pretty official. I nearly just took it at it's word too (as calling a 21 year old waitress who I know won't know what i'm talking about didn't sound fun) but decided I better call after not noticing any advertisement of the PPV on the facebook pages of the bars.
