Has meltzer or anyone else released any estimates yet? I was at the event but 3 of my friends who don't even really watch UFC all ordered the fights. Apparently casuals really like this Jon Jones fella. Phone Post 3.0

less than 600k is dissapointing.  you had a full season of tuf building up the fight, the supposed great promoter in chael sonnen and they couldnt even break 600k?

Not Chael's fault when Jones fails to promote the fight

What are Jones' previous numbers? Aren't they usually 700-800k range?

Could you imagine if Eddie Alvarez got on that card? I think he could've pushed the buys to 600K and would've walked away with a very nice payday. Phone Post 3.0

Only Jones vs Evans hit 700K. Belfort and Machida were below 500K. Phone Post 3.0

his fight against rashad was over 700k.  his fight against vitor was around 450k.  Chael didnt add much. 

This is dissapointing for a circus fight.

It is Chael's fault when people here say Chael Sonnen is a draw.

Hell, Dana said he was a top draw.

Looks like all the Jim Rome appearances equaled no buys and even when facing the best in Jones; he still doesn't draw money.

Sadly this means Jon is no draw either as his grudge bout with Rashad did 700K and this one did 550K.

The UFC still hasn't replaced Brock Lesnar and what he drew on a consistent basis. Phone Post

in the UFC 700k and 550k means youre a draw.  In the UFC anything over 400k you're a draw.

The non draws pull around 300k or less.

Right now, all the original ufc titles (ww to hw) plus ronda are ppv draws...  LW and below are not ppv draws.

Bendo may be one now with all the exposure he got on fox but that remains to be seen until he headlines a ppv.

I thought that superstar Chael was going to carry the entire event and was singlehandedly responsible for UFC 148 (allegedly) doing a million buys?

This fight was a fucking turd, and everybody knew it. Jones going WWE and shit talking Chael after the two of them pretended to be buddies on TUF wouldn't have changed a goddamn thing.

Zuffa wasted a year of Jones' career and deprived him of a fight with Henderson for this nonsense. Hope that they're happy.

thought they would reach 600K but read UFC spent for a 500K card so they didn't loose money.

I think Bendo post Nate Diaz could have been a draw. His fight with Melendez would have brought over 400k buys. Now I don't know. Too many split decisions in that division.

Even if he wasnt a draw, it was still a great fight that the UFC bombed. You dont think they knew who the big favorite would be in the Henderson vs Machida fight?

Jones doesnt have many opponents left in the division, and a win over Henderson would have been sweet for him(another former champ in the bag).

550k buys is pretty good. The card itself was very weak considering the UFC on Fox card they put on free tv a week prior was considerably better, so I'm sure Chael did boost the buyrate. Phone Post

True, but Zuffa was still bitter over Henderson's role in cancelling the previous fight (ie not disclosing an injury to them when it was known).
