    Make my words

    UFC 157: Rousey vs Carmouche sold 450k and she wasn't even that famous, her first UFC fight.

    UFC 170 sold 350k and the same as 157, she wasn't as famous as she is now.

    UFC 184 (Zingano) sold 600k and UFC 190 sold 900k (Bethe) and it was a pretty bad main card with quantity over quality

    I don't see how UFC 207 can't sell over 800k even without media BS, now we have 2 "extras", one is her return and the other is that her haters no longer think she's "invincible" and many of them will buy it to maybe, and just maybe, watch her lose again since now it's a 50/50 fight

    Also we have a pretty good fight between Cruz and Cody for the BW title and TJ Dillashaw is on it too, so much better card than UFC 190 and 184 were

    I think it would if it were on a Saturday, but the Friday showtime is going to hurt them.

    Probably does sound 600k. There is not nearly as much talk for this fight as her last 2. A good chunk of her fan base has moved on now that they know she is not invincible

    Werdum vs Cain was probably a bigger draw than the 2 men's bantamweight fights. It was the one fight the stereotypical sherdoggian haters of manlets and WMMA were excited to see. I still think it's a solid card but I'm not convinced it easily clears a million buys like I was previously.

    900k to 1.1 M is my guess.

    I think it does around 500k because it's friday.

    People said the 190 PPV would bomb as well because the hype wasn't there until fight week. That could be the case here.

    I don't know though. It's hard to predict this one.

    Ronda was a way bigger star then. She still had that "once ever' most skilled fighter ever thing going on. She doesn't have that now and allot of the casuals that bought Joe and Dana's hype have moved on

    Being on a Friday might throw some people off. But with the apoeal of Rousey's return. I think the intrigue of not really seeing her talk will make people more invested. Cruz and Cody will bring the heat in interviews and weigh ins.

    I think a million may be too much due to the date. But think it will do well.

    It's on a Friday. I'm thinking 750k-1 million. If it hits 1 million, it will definitely be impressive. Ronda had a lot of fairweather fans and when she lost, they went away. We'll see if they give her another chance.

    Same, I think it will do 600 - 900k, I could be wrong, but I just don't see Ronda being a bigger draw then she was or even the same draw.

    I think there's a great story behind her, but her lack of media really hurt the cards drawing potential
