    Am I the only one that feels there's very little buzz for UFC 207? It's Ronda's return and I don't see nearly as much promotion as I saw for UFC 193. All the hype and momentum she had prior to the Holly loss seems to have fizzled out. After falling off the face of the earth for a year, people have forgotten all about her. Any thoughts?

    I think it'll do in the 600-750k region.

    Which, would be pretty decent.

    Her return lost a lot of steam given her opponent is an unknown

    I'll watch it only because #1....My son is buying the PPV and #2....I think Nunes is going to destroy her....and that always makes me smile.....I am still smiling from Ronda's Holly Holm fight!!!

    I've always felt Ronda was a bit of a fad fighter, a curiosity to many non MMA fans, even if she hadn't lost I think her numbers would have started to trend downwards as these type of fans lose interest quickly.

    She hasn't been doing all the publicity she was doing before.

    Being on a Friday will hurt the butyrate a bit but I think this does 1.1 million buys. There was very little hype for Rousey-Correia and that did 900k. Much stronger undercard compared to UFC 190. We'll see but I'd be shocked if it didn't do at least 600k.

    I think it'll do fine but probably less than Ronda's last few. I think it being on a Friday night will be what harms it the most.
     
  13. you guys are idiots.

    rondas fight with bethe did over 1 mill.

    this fight is destined to do atleast 1.2

    I think Ronda being away for a year probably will have an effect. How big...I'm not sure.

    I'd be very surprised if the number of buys is less than a million. But I really don't know what the number will be.
