    A bit less, 600-650k IMO.

    Too bad they don't release the numbers.

    I agree ppv isn't dead, just put on better shows. Dc vs jones is the greatest lhw fight on paper but the overall card isn't that strong.
    I would be surprised if it did 750k

    I wouldn't pay for this card. But then, there have been few I'd be willing to buy in recent years.

    Seeing as they don't release the numbers, he can say what he wants. Although if they did, he's probably in the ballpark at 750

    Pay-per-view ain't dead but you're killing it with sub-par cards. A main event is nothing if the undercard sucks balls. How many REALLY stacked cards did we have last year? Compared to like 2010-2012. DW you spreading the cards too thin. Stop putting big name fighters on Fight Nights and start stacking up the PPV events again and you'll see a rise in PPV numbers.

    I think that if it hit the 1 million mark Dana would release the numbers to validate an immediate rematch and to validate how great the UFC is doing. that being said I consider what dave Meltzer says as fairly accurate.

    500k seems optimistic.

    I agree. the free UFC on fox, FS 1 and FS 2 just benefits the casual fans and it's obvious by the numbers that they don't help the PPV numbers. I guess the UFC likes the guarantee Fox money than taking a chance on relying mostly on PPV buys. UFC 182 should have a co main event of JDS vs Stipe and cerrone vs Jurry should kick off the ppv.

    Meltzer is very accurate
    He also reports WWE PPV numbers & those are public & he is usually 5% within the exact number released.
    Meltzer's only bad UFC number was Lesnar/Overeem.
    Also some PPV numbers were record in court cases & Meltzer's numbers were almost exact.
    Dolts say he uses 'google trends' only, but he doesn't.
    He has a lot of cable/sat insiders & that is why it usually takes a few weeks. He does report trend figures the day or so after (he is a reporter after all) so dolts get confused.

    181 looks to have done 380k.
    This fight is much bigger & 10x the buzz

    500k would be a disaster

    Its probably going to take a HUGE hit going against Ravens/Steelers in the playoffs. Theres a decent chance the football game doesnt end until after the co-main has started.
