    the only record this ufc will break is the number of times a reigning champion has lost in a row

    I honestly feel like this will break the UFC ppv record. A few weeks ago I didn't think it would, but as it's gotten closer, I've heard more and more people talking about it. Casual fans at that.

    Wasn't there a report just a few weeks ago that said there were still a lot of tickets left? Like 30% for 40%?

    "trending to do so?" Isn't that BS speak for "everything I'm saying is BS?"

    Both UFC 100 and UFC 196 did very well. I personally don't care which one was a bit more lucrative than the other.

    The UFC isn't stupid. There's a reason they were gonna let a non-title fight headline over 2 title fights.

    Interesting. I wonder if this really will top the ~1.6 million buy mark.

    I know alot and I mean alot of casuals who will be tuning in for this. People who ordinarily never watch UFC. Conor is a mega start right now in terms of popularity. People who don't even know what UFC is ask me questions about Conor. And they say stuff like "what kind of fighting is that? it's dangerous isn't it, guys throwing elbows and knees at eachother" And I just usually do the facepalm at that point. But still its cool to see how much interest it gets.
