I’m going a little more conservative: 1.1 million.
If they line up a great co-main, maybe it does better than that. But the way the UFC is stretching its roster with fights almost every weekend, I think they will let Conor/Chandler carry this PPV and put much lesser-known names on the main card.
And I believe the Conor mystique has largely worn off. He has lost 3 of his last 4 fights, getting stopped in all three losses. And he’ll be 35 by the time the fight happens this summer.
If it does anything under a million its a giant failure.
UFC is badly in need of a good ppv since the numbers have been down horribly. I know ESPN doesnt pay them just for ppv buys but overall viewership but I would guess a contract renewal might get them paid less.
My favorite midget wrestling federation is charging 9.99 for their first ppv and they run like a full federation with storylines like they’re just a midget WWE and I will be giving them my money for live content on February 25, 2023.
