    Knowing the official buy rate numbers for UFC 234 won't be released at least for a
    few days I can start the party at my best estimate of 80,000 plus or minus a few.

    I'm thinking between 200-300k. And that is generous.

    Silva has drawn in the past, but this fight was with a relative unknown to most casuals and had nothing to back it up. Bad card on paper. And PPV still has it as Whitacker vs Gastelum, so many didn't know Silva was actually main eventing the card. And Whitacker isn't a draw himself, so...

    The buy rates are never "official". The UFC doesn't release those numbers. The numbers that we see are usually provided by Dave Meltzer or some other journalist.

    I'm thinking 200k. Silva can somewhat draw and I know some people purchase cards in advance, not to mention if you planned a viewing party at your place.

    160K seems about right. Silva still has some nostalgic drawing power.
