History of UFC PPV buyrates (UFC 33 - UFC 100)

source: upstandingcitizens.com
 

 I was looking around and nobody has compiled a list of all the UFC ppv buyrates, so I put this together. Almost all of these are estimates, but I tried to use the most reliable sources when possible - ie. Meltzer or directly from Zuffa. Anything between UFC 10 and UFC 32 is usually considered to be about ~25K buys since they were only on limited PPV carriers during that time. The early UFCs peaked with 260K buys with UFC 5 and went downhill from there.
