    it takes a long time with ESPN+
    also, there's no info on 237-238
    350-400k at best

    They are not gonna tell us the numbers no more? Is it a new policy?

    UFC very rarely gave out any PPV numbers (and usually bullshitted when they did). The estimates we got were from Dave Meltzer using contacts in the PPV industry. Now with the ESPN deal everything's done in-house so those PPV contacts are useless now.

    Well, that can be indication of two things
    1. they don't want the fighters to know how much money they are making for the company
    2. the ppv numbers are really really low and they are hiding it.

    No one at all bought it that's why you can't find anything on the buys.

    My guess is they are really low after the ESPN paywall

    How did you manage to make a screenshot look like you were running with the camera.

    How does releasing the numbers help the UFC or Espn in anyway?

    Agreed, I mean to sherdoggers and the people who know the situation it'd be helpful and I don't see the harm but generally without even the best of those numbers would just look the UFC was on the verge of collapse.

    And there's the little thing they were about to shut 125 down over numbers no one except Jon and Khabib is probably hitting now.

    100=100k in google searches in "google trends" has nothing to do with PPV numbers
