While we will never know the truth of the matter, the lone source for UFC pay-per-view figures has and always will be, Mr. Dave Meltzer.
When people talk of buys, stating this PPV did this amount and this one did that, it is all based on his industry intelligence. The UFC never confirms figures, nor do the broadcasters, however, Meltzer’s time in the PPV business has gone on way before the UFC existed and therefore his estimates and contacts are widely considered as valid and on point.
With that being said, here is what he said via his subscription based newsletter about last weekend’s UFC139 event.
“Very early estimates indicate the PPV numbers are going to fall very slightly less than UFC 1387, so a first estimate would be around 270,000, although more accurate numbers won’t be available for two weeks.”
UFC 139 took place this past Saturday from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. In the main event Dan Henderson and “Shogun” Rua went to war for 25-minutes in one of the best fights in Mixed Martial Arts history.featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news
