UFC 193 On Track To Be UFC’s Second-Highest Grossing PPV Ever

Lorenzo Fertitta, co-owner of the UFC‘s parent company Zuffa, told Yahoo Sports that it looks like UFC 193 will be the company’s second-highest grossing pay-per-view ever, behind UFC 100.

“It was a record-breaking night,” Fertitta told Yahoo Sports. “In the history of combat sports, four females have never been able to drive the performance we were able to drive on Saturday. … It’s our third-largest event of all-time and it’s trending to be our second-largest. It’s not an exact science, dealing with pay-per-view, and the numbers come in very slowly.

“You kind of get the preliminary numbers and use some historical data points and you project out where you’re going to end up. It was a very big night and we’re more than pleased with the results.”

While Fertitta didn’t confirm any numbers, UFC 193 is estimated to be at around the 1.1 million buys mark so far. The highest-grossing PPV to date, UFC 100, did an estimated 1.6 million buys in 2009.
