Championship doubleheaders are good for business.

Not bad given it was a shit card with two title fights

But if they think that 177 will pull the same numbers think again. They will do half of 500 k buys

There you have it
Weidman/Rousey vs Silva/Tate = 1m
Weidman/Rousey vs Machida/Davis = 500k+

So Rousey and Weidman are not the UFC's biggest stars.

The only times the UFC have broken the 1m record:
Liddell Ortiz 2
Lesnar Couture
Griffin Evans
Lesnar Mir
Evans Jackson
Lesnar Carwin
Weidman Silva 2

Lesnar - 3
Double Title fights - 3
Evans - 2
