UFC light heavyweight champ Daniel Cormier mentioned in a recent interview that a rematch between him and Jon Jones could do over a million PPV buys. Cormier previously lost to Jones at UFC 182 by unanimous decision. Cormier mentioned that their first fight at UFC 182 did between 700,000 and 800,000 PPV buys.
“Way over 1 million,” he estimated their rematch will do in terms of PPV buys. “I would love for us – for Jon and I – to do 1 million-and-a-half (buys). In our first one, we did 700,000, but there are a lot of factors that could make this one really big. Not only our rivalry, but Jon coming back from his legal issues.
“I believe that it can be a really, really big pay-per-view,” Cormier told MMAJunkie.com.
