UFC 202 500k viewers less than 200....

I would assume this is referring to the prelim numbers, because I doubt there's a PPV estimate available this early.

thats what I thought.  i read the prelims did over 1 million and considering it was up against the Olympics, thats pretty good

Prelims did 1.3 million, which is down from UFC 196, but not anywhere close to the 500K OP states.

down from 1.786 which is 486k rounded to 500k to not confuse some here. 

 

will be interested to see the ppv results, but this is a fair indication

He wasn't comparing them to 196, he was comparing them to 200.

 

(And I don't know what 200 did off the top of my head, so I have no idea if his claim is accurate... I'm just guessing that's what his claim is)

2 Million. But I doubt there is a correlation between prelim ratings and PPV buys for McGregor fights. He attracts a lot of casuals who only watch to see him. Plenty of them probably didn't bother to start watching until the PPV.

this is true, when you have a fighter that attracts the casuals, they don't give a **** about the other fights, they just want to see that one fight. Loads of people on my facebook was saying they was only tuning in to watch the mcgregor diaz fight.

Same here, I had numerous texts from mates asking if I'd seen the 'McGregor fight'. I tried to make em watch at least the whole main card as they were pretty awesome fights/KO's (apart from the wimmins one).... No-one did, damn filthy casuals lol

UFC 196 according to wiki done 1,9 million but according to Dana it was 1.5 million which is probably the better indication obviously, Going by the figures and current trends UFC 202 probably done between 1.3 and 1.4 million

Will say this the prelims for UFC 202 were a great introduction to MMA for the huge amount of viewers who tuned in and will have brought some new fans into the sport.

 

Though its still shocks me that less than 2 million Americans out of over 300 million would watch two fit guys fighting it out in a cage, This sport should capture the publics imagination because fighting is a primal thing and the want to fight lives in us all

You have got to remember that most people don't buy it and watch on their own, most people have friends over to watch it, plus all the bars ect that having viewing parties, so all in all, what ever the number of ppv buys are, you can multiply that number by a few to get an indication of how many people actually watch it.

it was able to be stacked because the ufc didn't need to blow 5mill on the cans headlining it. they had plenty spare for real talent

 

No they just blew 4 mil on the two headliners instead of 5. Brock got 2.5 mil and Anderson got 1.5 mil.

 

Do you have any other brilliant theories to enlighten us with?

**** the prelims!

 

 

Casual.

 

 

Whaaa... often times I enjoy the prelims more than the main card.. I feel like the fighters have more to prove so they are willing to take more chances.. in turn making for more exciting fights IMO opinion

 

 

 

 

 

I can't bring myself to watch 5 hours of UFC fights at one time.

um....that 4 is somehow greater than 5? 

 

and that's before ppv clicks

 

Yea 4 is greater than 5, that's what I was saying.

 

The point is it was 80% similar pay structure for Brock as Conor so your point about left over money is invalid.

great thanks for confirming your maths and logic are both ****ed up.

 

anderson's disclosed payment was 600k. if you want use co-headlines as your defence rumble + glover just cost you another 400k

Let's just do it this way.

 

Amanda Nunes ($100,000 + no win bonus = $100,000) def. Miesha Tate ($500,000)

Brock Lesnar ($2,500,000 + no win bonus = $2,500,000) def. Mark Hunt ($700,000)

Daniel Cormier ($500,000 + no win bonus = $500,000) def. Anderson Silva ($600,000)

Jose Aldo ($400,000 + $100,000 = $500,000) def. Frankie Edgar ($190,000)

Cain Velasquez ($300,000 + no win bonus = $300,000) def. Travis Browne ($120,000)

Preliminary Card (FOX Sports 1)

Julianna Pena ($32,000 + $32,000 = $64,000) def. Cat Zingano ($35,000)

Kelvin Gastelum ($53,000 + $33,000 = $83,000)* def. Johny Hendricks ($80,000)*

T.J. Dillashaw ($25,000 + $25,000 = $50,000) def. Raphael Assuncao ($42,000)

Sage Northcutt ($50,000 + $50,000 = $100,000) def. Enrique Marin ($13,000)

Jim Miller ($59,000 + $59,000 = $118,000) def. Takanori Gomi ($55,000)

 

This is a good deal more than the ufc spent on fighter purses for UFC 202
