Good post grappler, personally I think it will get at least 100,000 PPV buys. Yet, that is me just being optimistic.

EDIT: So, I guess 100k-200k is my pick. I voted but somehow clicked the 50k-100k option.

That would be nice to see, but I don't think they hit 50k. With Pride only doing 40k, I just don't see it...especially when you consider UFN 14 is in the mix for free. I hope they prove me wrong though.

It depends what time they are both on, With UFN 14 coming on the same night it'll be a bit of a squeez. But they always do Full Event replays, and plus, I can't miss Fedor Fighting Live. I haven't missed a live Fight of his ever.

Yeah, good points. I think that will unfortunately happen, so I'm trying to be optimistic.

The UFC certainly does sh!t gold don't they.
I love the UFC but it's sad that Franklin v Okami will do twice as well as this card in all likelihood.

75K-100K. I think this card will actually fare better, buys-wise, in foreign countries just because of Fedor. He's still not well-known here beyond the diehard MMA fans. UFC countering with UFN definitely will hurt.

There is no way i see them doing close to 75k, very much doubt 50k either

My best guess is 35,000

Yep. Before UFN 14 was announced, I thought they could do 50-75k if they advertised the hell out of it in the coming weeks...but now I'm guessing 25-40k.

The best comparison are the non-UFC MMA cards up there. They did between 13,000 and 40,000 buys and I think the strong card for the WFA and for Pride's Las Vegas show the year before were in that range.

I'd love to see them do well, but I've yet to see a non-UFC promotion do so in the PPV market.
