    UFC can barely get May/Pac numbers when airing on FOX. I think that should give you some idea how far away the UFC is from being able to attain that number on a PPV.

    Not anytime soon. The UFC isn't there yet, and that fight was a unique situation with all the stars aligning that boxing can't expect to match that number anytime in the foreseeable future.

    Also, I think Mayweather/Pacquiao was such a disappointing fight for so many people that it hurt the overall PPV business. A lot of those people who shelled out $100 to see a stinker of a fight are going to be pretty gun shy to buy another PPV.

    194 will be huge,

    UFC is already in mainstream talk again which means people will be paying attention to 194 promos.

    Along with TUF McGregor show

    There will be millions tuning in to see him get destroyed by Aldo

    What are you new to watching Floyd? Every fight he has its the same thing. Floyd promotes the shit out of it and gets casuals hyped for a "war". Fight happens and Floyd fights like he does every fight and dominates. People who know boxing like it and appreciate the unbelievable skill, while more casuals and MMA fans call him a "boring point fighter" and swear never to buy a Floyd PPV again. Then Floyd fights again and sells a ton of PPVs

    I don't think so but to get closer would have to have
    McGregor v Aldo
    Lawler v St pierre
    Weidman v Sonnen
    Rousey v cyborg
    Cm v Diaz
