UFC 170 was not the first time women have headlined a major MMA show, but according to UFC President Dana White, Ronda Rousey vs. Sara McMann was the biggest women's fight ever:

“If we did (just) 750 pay-per-view buys, it’s still the biggest women’s fight ever,” he said following this past Saturday’s event, which took place at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Center. “And this gate is still a quarter-million dollars bigger than her last (headlining) gate.”

“Did you see the building tonight? Will Smith flew in here. Him and his wife flew in and wanted to meet Ronda. Tell me in the history of combat sports, two women headlining a card that did what tonight does.”

Carano vs. Cyborg drew more eyeballs as there is no way Rousey/McMann did over 576,000 views/buys.

the size of the arena matters to gate, it would take identical arenas to compare gates.

Not only that but ticket prices, the HP pavillion is a big arena but if the ticket prices are not the same as a similar attendance it also has no comparable.

I bet this broke 600k. I had a lot of people at work asking me questions about that one and that rarely happens. There was a lot of interest in casual fans Phone Post 3.0
