    EXACT WORDING FROM HIS NEWSLETTER:

    Surprised the 189 numbers took a downturn (still good though considering Aldo dropped out)

    Oh & for all the dolts that say Meltzer is a paid shill for Dana (anytime he gives a decent number), I am guessing his 189 check from Dana bounced

    When you're here, I ask questions, YOU answer them
    Thread soon to be filled with retards celebrating the lower adjustment even though a reduction of great news is still great news in this case.

    Congrats to Honda and Conor.

    Of course
    If the numbers went from 700-850k they would say BS
    But they go down to 850k & it is "haha, Conor failed"

    UFC said that they did 1 million PPV's for Conor

    Meltzer is just a white knight Ronda lover

    Even at 800-850K, UFC 189 still had strong numbers and was a great event.

    sounds a bit high but very good - the investment in promotion will pay dividends as i expect connors numbers will be high as long as he keeps winning. aldo may put out the flame.

    The real question I have is whether Meltzer's numbers fall in line with what Jeremy Botter's sources are telling him.

    For those who missed it, Jeremy Botter says his sources told him that UFC 190 not only beat UFC 189, but clocked in over 1M+ buys and could actually be significantly higher.

    Starts at 33:00

    http://mmajunkie.com/2015/08/stream...-radio-2014-with-andrew-sanchez-jeremy-botter

    If Conor clocked in at 800k-850k and Rousey clocks in over 1M+ given it was in Rio, without a world tour, and standard levels of promotions that goes past amazing and into mind-boggling territory.

    Even if he loses to Aldo, UFC makes bank because all of a sudden an Aldo PPV breaks a million & after that Aldo (without Conor) should be doing double what he used to.

    Also Conor (if he loses) will still help any PPV he is on

    In a few months, when I bring up the flaws in Meltzer's figures, certain individuals will claim the number going around wasn't a million, just like it wasn't 800K for Rousey-Zingano, etc.
