The most watched UFC fight so far in 2007 on Spike TV outdrew the most watched boxing match on television this year by 73%.


"To me the records were just a starting point," recalls John Paul Jones, "The most important thing was always the stage show. So many great nights. At our worst we were still better than most. At our best we could just wipe the floor with the lot of them. It was just a very good live band."

Mayweather vs. De La Hoya will be huge, I agree, but that's it.
Those are the only two boxers who could outsell a MMA event.

Am I right in saying that Tyson / Lewis was the most purchased PPV in history?

I thought that I remembered hearing that somewhere... But do ya'all think that PBF / Oscar will break that record (if that wasn't it than just the record)? Just curious

it could break the record, but i have no idea who has it right now....this is a huge fight though, hardcore and casual fans will be tuning in. the bad thing is with it being cinco de mayo i see a lot of people having parties and going to bars to watch it so the numbers may be a little down from what is expected by some
