    A few weeks ago he said he would have the final number for UFC 194 ppv buys in the newsletter soon, but I haven't seen anything yet.

    Never posted updated number. I know Jeremy Botter posted recently that he heard 1.0-1.1 million.

    how would Meltzer even know? he just makes wild guesses

    I'm certain the UFC issues an official document stating how many ppv buys it does, in order to correctly pay commission bonuses to champions. If they really wanted to brag about their numbers they would just publish said document.

    Nope. Jones is actually the favourite.

    And it kills Cormier.

    Plus he has a documented history of being right.
    WWE had to publicly post their PPV numbers and his were pretty exact.
    There was one year WWE had a Wrestlemania early projection at about 150,000 over what Meltzer said and when the did the quarterly report the number was identical to Meltzer's.

    lol no I dont have names and social security numbers of Meltzers contacts sorry
    Do you not know what journalists and reporters do?
    Their job is to establish sources and contacts in whatever field they report on so that they are able to then relay this information to the public
    This is how the news business works
