Dave Meltzer via Wrestling Observer (subscription required):

We don’t have a number for 1/19 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, but it’s not close to sold out nor very big. That surprises me since it’s the first time UFC has been in that city, and even though it’s a weak card (Michael Bisping vs. Vitor Belfort on top with nothing else star power wise on the show other than Daniel Sarafian who came off TUF Brazil), I’d have thought first time in Sao Paulo would be an immediate sellout. The 11,000-seat arena is less than half sold with less than two weeks to go.

Just goes to show that even Brazilians can spot a weak card when they see one. Don't get me wrong, as a fan watching from my own house, it's a fun card. No way in hell I'd pay to see it live, though.

What else is there to do in São Paulo??

Soccer? Meh
Crime?? Bad idea

Bisping whooping some ass? Must see live entertainment.

I wonder what the crowd who slammed Rousey vs Carmouche has to say about this...

I'm in no way surprised by this the card is poor there has been little to no promotion for it. It seems the UFC either doesn't care about the card or they expected their first time in Sao Paulo to instantly sell.

If it was a fx card I wouldn't give a shit. Fx cards aren't like ppv. Fx cards are free so I don't pay
Ppv are money. I want my moneys worth

I think Dana banks on guaranteed success just because it's Brazil.
