I m going to throw out some random main events, and you tell me how many ppvs it would sell. Also, would you buy it? Some of these fights will make sense and some won't. Just suppose their was another b level fight on the card such as bisping or Guida as a co-main. This should spark some debate as to drawing power and revelance.

 

 

Nogueira vs. Barnett 3

 

Dan Henderson vs. Lyoto Machida

 

Tito Ortiz vs. Rampage Jackson

 

Nick Diaz vs. Diego Sanchez 2

 

Frank Mir vs. Alistair Overeem

 

Chael Sonnen vs. Rashad Evans

 

Jose Aldo vs. Korean Zombie

 

Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir 3

 

Wandy vs. Rampage 4

 

Gilbert Melendez vs. Frankie Edgar

 

Chuck Liddell vs. Jon Jones

I think the one that would sell the most is Ortiz vs Rampage. I wouldn't see the other ones really getting past 700K.

Hmm perhaps I need to look at recent buy rates for a gauge

 

Tito/Page is definitely the biggest easily. Two of the most mainstream fighters with a history of agreeing to never fight each other... They could make a killing off name recognition and playing up a "broken" friendship

Yeah I need to go check the buyrates too.

 

I'm pretty confident Aldo vs KZ would do somewhere between 200-300k. UFC 136 and 142 were between 200K-300k. Aldo's not too popular in the main stream really. If Penn vs Diaz only did 280,000 I don't think Diaz vs Sanchez 2 would do any better. It would be a lower number for sure though. I'm gonna stick with the numbers I put, I think those are pretty accurate.

Didn't know that about BJ/Diaz.. Lol let me revise my number

 

Mind you I feel these are number that would result from a properly marketed card with all the fixin's (countdowns, primetimes, etc)

Hendo vs Machida would do the best imo....Diaz vs Sanchez 2 close second, and Page vs Tito 3rd. Overeem would murk on Mir, Chael vs Rashad would be a boring wrestling match, I wouldn't wanna watch Nog vs Barnett, and Aldo vs The Zombie would be a sleeper I think but wouldn't hold much weight compared to these other fights imo
