Anything under 1 million, unless it does over a million then under 2.
Friday night, international card, Holiday weekend. The excuses are baked in. But Rousey has never been the biggest draw in the UFC. She's up there, but her stardom is about her crossover appeal more than her ability to sell PPV's. She gets attention in places no other fighters do. That doesn't always translate to record gates or PPV buys to her events, but it brings a lot of attention to the UFC all the same.
card will not flop
is she really quoteworthy? media not required
Conor has skewed people's views of what a flop PPV is. If she does over half a million buys, that's still more than the vast majority of headliners in the UFC.
Beat me to it!
I came to say this. gonna be Saturday in the UK too for the PPV portion.
Lol guys working at UFC just don't give a fuck. It's like you can't get fired there
if this doesn't reach 1 million likes I may have to kill myself
Never cared for the female division to begin with. Nor do I care about the mens flyweight division. Its like watching little kids out there. This fight card is not interesting at all. UFC put too much into their Madison Square Garden PPV that it didn't leave a whole lot left for the remainder of the years cards.
We'll see what kind of draw Ronda is on a shit card with no other fight that could be considered a main event, on a Friday, with very little promotion.
Casual Sunday haven't turned on her, Hardcore/purist/dickhead fans have.
I disagree with that. Hardcore mma fans care about the fights not someone's mental health or whether they shake the hand of someone that hates them. It's the people that are new to mma that came over from wwe that care more about the storyline than the actual fighting.
any fight with Dominick Cruz is main event material because he's the BW champion
Its a decent argument.
You got very little press about this fight due to ronda and her requirements. You couple that with the fight being on a different day and you got yourself low ratings.
Im not sure that it NOT being on NYE helps the sales. People will be out at bars...and bars show the event.
The world has moved on.
You can't do nothing for a year and expect people to remember you.
Do people still talk about that bed intruder guy?
The lack of fight week promotion and the fact that it's on Friday will hurt this card.
Ronda has a lot of haters these days who are even more likely to buy the card than the fans. It is not going to flop.
But those people don't stop watching because someone acts like a dick. It's the purists, or rather the people that claim to be purists, who pull the whole "fuck this fighter I'm never watching ever again" bullshit.
Friday? HH derailment? Ok, yes I have been out of the loop for the last month. So what the hell are you talking about?
