Even as MMA hardcores continue to cream their collective jeans over the unbelievable awesomeness of new light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, early estimates indicate UFC 128 didn’t quite live up to expectations in the sales department. Stalwart fight journalist (and the kind of dude who keeps track of this stuff) Dave Meltzer reports his numbers show Saturday night’s pay-per-view notching between 415,000-470,000 buys, which puts it pretty much exactly on the nose of the UFC’s “average” buy rate of 445K. What’s that mean exactly? Well, to borrow a phrase from Scott Coker, it means UFC 128 didn’t really “move the needle” with casual fans.

Article is spot on. The MMA hardcores all wear one collective pair of jeans, the biggest jeans in the universe, and we've recently been suffering inside the jeans due to an overabundance of cream, a sort of cream tsunami. I'm surprised Cage Potato caught onto this since they are banned from entering the jeans.

 Memory is hazy, but I recall Bert Sugar using that line to describe his reaction to Hagler-Hearns rd 1.

Ah yes, the "I'm winning!!11!" tactic.

 He's got the interwebz message board toughguy thing down pat, I have a feeling once he leaves the computer that life smacks his bitch ass up quite nicely.

While the PPV didn't "move the needle" the impact from that event should be felt for quite some time. Jones put on a great performance, and with the Tonight Show appearance I'm sure he as well as the UFC will probably gain a few more fans. Regardless of the numbers of that PPV, the payoff from that day should be quite high in the long run.

 Exactly this.

I'm not a Jones fan, but he'll become a draw.  He's young with a personality and dynamic in the cage...the benefit from Saturday night and it's aftermath will be felt going forward.  Jones/Evans will do a big number.

Shogun not really a big draw and Bones still wasn't that well known.

I guarantee the next John Jones fight will do damn well.
