    Looks like all their biggest draws are here except Jones

    We got Weidman vs. Machida
    Rousey fighting
    Chael gonna be talking a shit ton and now fighting Vitor
    California Kid Faber even in here.
    What kind of card has Faber as the #4 fight?



    This is the kind of main card both hardcores and even casuals can appreciate. This is what a ppv should look like. Will most certainly buy, not steam. I can find a few buddies even in this newish town to chip in $10 bucks

    800K max...No GSP,Anderson or Lesnar

    There isnt that much hype around this card and PPV buys are on the decline.

    Should be a good event though.

    No card without GSP, Brock or Anderson is getting over 1.25 million

    I said since 100. I don't think it will top 100 either, thinking this may put up Silva-Weidman 2 numbers or like Broc's other stuff?

    Not a chance its a good card but no way it outsells 168

    Weidman vs Machida neither are big stars on there own
    Ronda vs davis she can draw 300k -400k buys on her own
    Chael vs wand Chael only really should ppvs when against Anderson

    I predict 650k buys.

    Defo a solid card but there is no match that screams buy me,least not to me anyways

    It's definitely a big card, and for my money, a really good one. But I don't think it'll do as well as UFC 168, maybe not even UFC 114.

    Most stacked card for sure, but I don't think there is a big enough name for it to break 1 million which 168 did.

    I'd say about 850k.

    People ITT underestimating how big of a star Weidman is already.

    BTW, if you guys have watched, Chael doesn't really trash talk vitor, so I kinda think this will be less interest than if it was wand vs chael.

    Some people are, yes. I think this card falls in a 400-600k spread

    I know Chael used to say a lot of respectful things towards Vitor but I thought after Vitor said some stuff about Chael he was added to Chael's shitlist.

    It's a great card but I doubt it'll even be a top 10 all time ppv.
