    The standard numbered events were usually around 20k, Bushido events about 10k, Shockwave/Final Conflict/Total Elimination/etc were the ones consistently pulling 40+k

    Basically the RIZIN numbers are on par with many of the PRIDE numbers but well short of PRIDE's peak numbers. Will be interesting to see what the ratings were like this time around.
     
  6. Not anywhere near the old numbers some of those events were 60,000. But those weren't 60,000 mma fans. Not that that matters, money is money

    Attendance numbers are good numbers for sure, but gate is the end game.

    How many are they comping vs how many are being sold. Gate tells you more than audience numbers do imo.


    Still, glad to see them drawing crowds, and tending upward. I hope they hold more and more successful events.

    The crowd was pretty great. What you'd expect from Japan. Went from very quiet to very loud when something big happened. A couple times Aliakbari three those huge hooks and it was cool to hear the "ooooOOOOooooh!!" live.

    They went nuts every time a Japanese fighter won. And if course Crocop got a huge reception. Krons win is when they were the quietest.

    Andy had the most awkward moment. It was clear what she was trying to say in Japanese, but said something like "I am salt sauce" and followed up with "see, I don't need an interpreter". In the US that would be memeworthy and gain her fans. In Japan they just kinda facepalmed.

    I feel we in a new Era of JMMA

    Where guys and girls work hard for thier ratings and not hard to win a match

    Sakakibara's RIZIN is now about gaming the ratings system which is an absurd and wonderful outcome of PRIDE's collapse

    That has more to do with an overall problem at FujiTV. It also doesn't help that people are still essentially socially shaming PrideFC owners. But people still love Takada. He was all over TV the week leading up to the event.
