    Great Card, glad I bought it. My guess was about 425k-450k PPV buys going in, but word of mouth during the broadcast might have driven it higher. If it hit 500k then it was a huge success for UFC.

    Amazed at the Canadian gates, guess that is why they are getting 3 cards a year. Suck it up Pittsburgh, no more cards for you.

    2012 is shaping up as the year of Fox (Fx/Fuel) as PPV numbers may not be great, again due to injuries, but 100 million is still 100 million (something tells me UFC may actual get a little more).

    Looks like Meltzer is reporting 480 thousand buys. Good, but not great numbers given estimate for Rampage was 475 thousand.

    Anyway, it will dwarf the 250-300 thousand for 141

Got something to say?
