Justin Goff sent along the following:
On Saturday December 8th, mixed martial arts and boxing both aired at the same time with a full card of fights. The UFC‘s Ultimate Fighter reality show on Spike TV featured a main bout between Roger Huerta and Clay Guida, while boxing had a pay per view event featuring Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Ricky Hatton.
Online sportsbook Bodoglife.com made a statement to MMAbettingblog.com that
“The betting handle for Ultimate Fighter 6 was small. Huerta and Guida was the most bet on fight of the event, but in terms of revenues it only drew what we normally see for a preliminary match of a UFC pay per view”
They went on to compare the handle for The Ultimate Fighter and the PPV boxing event of the night.
