Early Estimates Show UFC 148: Silva vs. Sonnen II May Have Done 1 Million Buys


The show broke a number of UFC records, but not the big one. Early estimates have the show doing 1 million buys on PPV, which would put it in the same range as the Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez fight on October 21, 2010, and be the largest UFC number since that time. Thatís a very early number and could vary greatly, as noted by the Mania numbers. But it handily beat Mania numbers as that show is estimated at 670,000 in North America.

Early estimates have the show doing 1 million buys on PPV,

Cuz it is not a confirmed number. I am sure a final number will be out in the next few days and will get posted.

I think this PPV did well to accumulate 1 million buys. I thought it would do between 900K and 1 million. The all-time record (UFC 100, 1.6 millions buys) could have been challenged if Silva vs Sonnen II had happened according to the original plans (Brazilian stadium show, co-headlined by Vitor vs Wand).
