    It's a shame that the most bought card in a long time was such a snoozer.

    Yeah it will bring in a lot of revenue, but it won't create fans.

    He knew it was going to do more, if you think he said 750 with any threat to it being less your crazy. He knew it would be more and now he can gloat that it did more then expected.

    Glad Jones and DC did good, they deserved it.

    Please. Does he not realize there were nfl playoffs on tonight, with more money riding on them, that didn't cost $60?

    Doubt it. UFC is not hitting 1.6 million again.

    big upsets, controversial decisions, and/or losses by cult status fighters (BJ rings a bell) on big cards is what crashes Sherdog...

    Fedor losing crashed Sherdog and a lot more people watched this fight

    I don't remember Rashad-Rampage crashing the site... with that said, I would also guess around 800k

    If they both win their next fights and rematch, I think it will hit a million

    If UFC gives Anderson one more fight after Diaz to rebuild hype, guessing him vs Weidman could hit a million by years end too

    Wonder how many will ever order again after a main card with 5 decisions. No great moments at all.
