    UFC have been releasing their PPV numbers tell everyone how well their events are doing, they said that Conor-Dustin did 1.6 million PPVs
    They said Usman-Burns did 500 to 600 k PPVs
    They said Adesanya -Jan did 800 k + PPVs
    For some odd reason they won't release how much UFC 260 did, Stipe- Francis.

    I am thinking it bombed and they are embarrassed, maybe under 400 k PPV.
    Anyone in the know or has a different view?

    They never release the number. People are making estimates and reporting them. Those numbers aren’t official just guesses

    They give vague ranges. Sometimes Helwani reports rumors he heard from sources. Nothing verifiable. We don’t get numbers due to the ESPN move

    People don't care about the biggest trained killers in the world kicking eachother's asses

    They'd rather pay to see some little gay kid beat up a retired dad from a different sport

    No they almost never release numbers. If theres a huge ppv Dana will sometimes say its trending to be huge but they never release actual numbers

    I don't buy Francis vs Stipe 2 doing worse than Usman vs Burns

    Dana and ufc dont release ppv info. Dana might brag about things from time to time. But the numbers come from journalists who calculate the trends, google searches etc. Dave Meltzer used to be the official source but espn has made things difficult.

    That's not horrendous but proves Ngannou isn't a draw despite the UFC trying to hype him up as the MMA equivalent of Tyson. Maybe if he knocks Jones' head off he'll become a ppv star, don't think beating Lewis would give him much of a bump ppv wise.

    If the Heavyweight champion can't do more than Adesanya, the UFC will need Conor and nate a lot longer.

    Wonder if they'll partially cave into to Jones and end up giving him say 20 million in the hope he loses and the card gets enough eyeballs to turn big Frank into a ppv draw. Think the guy has a bit part in the next Fast and Furious so it's clear the UFC is going to do a full court press to try and make this guy a star, not sure he achieves it without taking Jones out.

    This articles is talking about TV ratings which are public and they were bad cause they were going up against the NCAA tournament

    ESPN doesn’t have to report numbers. We used to know the numbers when UFC PPVs went through traditional PPV providers but the ESPN deal put an end to that.

    The numbers reported may be correct or they could be way off. The point I’m making is that we should at least be skeptical.
