Much of the talk ahead of UFC 157 was how many pay-per-views a show headlined by female fighters could be. Some were predicting in the 700,000 buy range, leaning on a large number of non-MMA fans buying simply to see a historic moment or having been captivated by Rousey's "mystique." Other's predicted a low 200,000 number...

I predicted no more than 200K and I'm quite happy to be way off.

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!
