Thier business is centered around fights, and revenue from those fights. PPV is only a portion of the revenue. Over the past three to four years it has slid more and more towards FOX/Cable/Network television. Only a portion of the world even has to buy a PPV to see the numbered events. Only the people who want to pretend that the UFC is not growing anymore will ignore the global expansion and try and crib it down to only PPV buys.

I suppose I take PPV into account more than I should being American. I always forget that the rest of the world gets to watch those events for free. Phone Post

Yep. Well they pay for the cable and the cable providers and networks pay Zuffa. 

I would bet that less than 50% of thier revenue is PPV. Much less than what most people probably think.

No its foolish because PPV is not the only revenue stream for the UFC. This is not 2001 genius.

Its especially ignorant when people compare a single event to boxing and ignore that the UFC puts on almost three times as many PPV per year then it did a decade ago. Let us also ignore that FOX deal for Americans, the deals with Brazillian TV as well, and that they now basically have thier own channel that plays UFC stuff every single day for hours.

And I have no "agenda" at all. I hate a lot of things the UFC does. If anything my "agenda" is to lauh at idiots who try and claim the UFC is "growing stale" or people are "losing interest". The UFC is more popular today then it has ever been. Whether we like it or not. Phone Post

the UFC is not growing just because it keeps goingt o new places. that ust means places it has been wont have them back for having shitty cards & insane tickets prices. they arent growing anything. do you really think places like calgary, vancouver and countless others will get anther UFC? no. and thats why they can do 13 events in brasil, because brasil isnt tired of their game yet. but north america is.

Lmao@ "north america is"....

No one can take you seriously and objectively. You cried like a little bitch for months because a bunch of fighters got injured on your card and you paid for tickets.

How are ticket sales for 166,167 and 169?
Hint: the 2000-5000$ vip packages are already sold out for the first two.... Phone Post

who said I was only looking at ppv buys? I'm looking at the fact I live in a HUGE College town and no one gives a fuck anymore. BWW is the only place left to go now and other than a HUGE fight with GSP or Anderson its like no one even knows its on. and you used to not even be able to get in the place for the fights. dont see walmart flooded with tapout mma stuff anymore. Spencers used to have life size cut outs of fighters during the Brock days. the action figs were everywhere, now they are at kmart only or clearance racks. my best buy carries about 4 ufc dvds and used to have an entire shelf dedicated to them. and I never hear anyone new talk about ufc/mma. only the same old guys I know watch it.

Let me ask you a question noob - now that Alistair is with UFC, are you going to root for him or stick by your guns and claim he's overrated ???   Do you have a position or just ride the nuts of anyone who's winning and signed with Zuffa ?  Where's your loyality ?
