Most poepel say that I am being generous, but I feel it'll get 120,000 buys. Mainly with the UFC push.

I think not. Few is the key word.

I think they will do alright. Several of the bars that pick up UFC will be showing the fights. I think if they get 100k buys it will be a win for Zuffa. The Countdown was well done as getting some good play on three networks.

People are mad because they think WEC should be free. But the top fights are never going to be free anymore. Either the WEC sells enough to make it worth a PPV or Zuffa will just put some title fights under the UFC banner, but one way or another the days of seeing Faber/Pulver 1, Faber/Brown 2, or Cerrone/Henderson for free are over.

I'd be really shocked to see it do under 100k. I'm guesstimating around 140-160k.

I don't think it will hit 140k

200,000 I think. I think the UFC is overmarketing it and pretty much shoving it down our throats. But anybody who has watched the WEC is telling everybody how badass the fights are so I think a lot more people then you think will buy it. While 200,000 isn't a fantastic number, it still is a hell of a start.

Yeah they where talking on Sherdog radio like 85,000 would be the high number by the reports they where getting.

That might be a generous estimate considering Yahoo may be streaming the event. They have ads suggesting it'll be a PPV but when I clicked on the links for it I get redirected to their MMA blog, suggesting maybe they'll show it for free. Who knows.

If Buffalo Wild Wings and other bar/grills buy it, than it will pass 120,000 buys. if not 80,000. It is a stacked card!

Looks like at least some will buy it, Joe Hand Promotions is distributing it as usual and already has their usual list up of bars that will be showing it.

This is so true it hurts.....I am mad at the loss of free quality fights. I even used to watch the IFL because it was free (and that was mostly crap!), now I am pretty much being reduced to Bellator (which is mostly crap until the finals!). I have to admit, WEC definately spoiled me rotten!

For a stacked card like this they should bring in a lot but people are still upset because they are use to getting WEC free on the VS channel. I think they will get enough buys to call it a success but far from calling it a great success.

So you estimate there are about 40,000 buffalo wild wings in the world??

If BWW does pick it up in all their restaurants that'll only increase the buy rate by 4 or 5 thousand. I honestly doubt any BWW will play it though.

I called a Buffalo Wild Wings the day before the event and the woman who answered probably never said the world "no" faster in her life. They had NO interest in buying it.

Buffalo Wild Wings. You DON'T Have To Be Here (at that location anyway).
