What? 400k nowadays is a damn good PPV draw. Miesha will likely be her next opponent in a rematch, and they should improve even more on this number where they can easily sell the fight with the bad blood between them.

Lesnar's first PPV buy rate was at 600,000 and he was the co-main to big Timmeh and Big Nog.

I'm very impressed with those numbers, and If she continues to dominate I see her buy rates going to the 750,000 level maybe more who knows!
