    Well, with all the drama surrounding this one and Woodley not a big draw and an average card I think this could be in bottom 3 of the year. I’m guessing 125-150k for this one. I’ll watch but will head down to local sports bar to watch instead of buying this one.

    50k of Black sons raised in White America will buy it. Tyrun will be rich.

    This is a fucking terrible PAY PER VIEW card, good lord! Look I'm as much a fan as anyone but with the talent available on the UFC roster having cards like this and charging 60 bucks for them is just fucking ridiculous. There's 1 and a half fights on this card I want to see and I have a feeling the 1 I want to see (welterweight title fight) is going to be boring as fuck. Promoting shit like this is why Bellator has been gaining momentum.

    If the numbers turn out to be as low as y'all are saying then Darren till ain't that big of a star, wasn't he supposed to be a big draw or whatever?

    150K. It's gonna be low, especially after losing the co-main title fight.

    The card was weak before the co- main got canceled. I'm guessing south of 200k

    Pssshhhh, the co-main getting cancelled will probably boost buys by a couple thousand. WMMA is so terrible it actively repels fans of combat sports.
