Report | 19 Million Brazilians Tuned In To Watch Anderson Silva Beat Chael Sonnen | UFC NEWS

Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen 2 brought the biggest numbers yet for a UFC pay-per-view airing in Brazil.

UFC 148 aired a 30-minute tape delay on Globo TV pulling in 19 million viewers.  A contractual agreement between Globo TV and the UFC caused the air delay.  The numbers reflect only the ratings of the tape delayed free broadcast shattering the record last month of 10 and 15 million viewers for UFC 147 which took place in Brazil.

President Dana White stated prior to the show that he expected UFC 148 to break the one million buys mark.  The UFC has not yet released the U.S. pay-per-view estimates.

    So PPV cards air on regular TV in Brasil???? WTFSHITBALLS

    • IceMan says:

      No such thing as PPV in Brazil. They don’t tune in to watch MMA they tune in to watch anything that’s hyped up or has a brazilian athlete involved otherwise they don’t give a flying shit about it.

    • Clay says:

      Basically global tv buys out the contract of ppv then shows it. So they are making more money than they would regularly with no brazillians watching

  2. GET RID OF GUIDA (forever) says:

    both these fighters cheated in this fight, Sonnen hit the back of the head in the first round and silva grabbed his shorts in the second round.

    I recently read am article that says “wrestling” in college and high school has the highest rate of HOMOSEXUALS than any other sport. GEE and I always thought you Lay n prayers just like taking long showers with each other and it turns out you guys really do like lay n praying and LEGUMPING each other. What a disgrace to athletics bunch of HOMO’s join wrestling so they can wear tights and rub their junk on other faggots. Damn now i know why all wrestlers in scholl always walked like tehy hada stick up their asses. Well us NORMAL guys will have last laugh when all you WRESTLER FAGGOTS go to hell. God may forgive murderers but he don’t forgive FAGGOTS. If everyone was weirdo buttfucking faggots like you wrestlers then the human race would have died out million years ago. keep on buttfucking all you wrestling faggots and we will keep on laughing at you

  5. MMA FAN says:

    Aside from the Silva win, does anybody ever think that the ufc is rigged? This was a great opportunity for Brazil and boosted views by a lot. Not saying I definitely think its rigged, but I am just baffled on how easy Sonnen went down. Look how much Silva is invested by sponsors: Nike, Burger King, etc. If he lost it would have been devastating for sponsors, ratings. The people in the mob could of had millions invested into Silva. I may just be talking out of my ass, but the thought came across my head and was wondering if anyone else thought about this. Especially after watching the Pacman fight, I have grown suspicious.

  6. FALSE says:

    Who really gives a shit, JDS fight over 50 million Brazilians witnessed. ANDY is a CHEATER, from his Shoulder at Weigh Ins, to Vaseline like Grease St. Pierre, to Short Grabs to ILLEGAL KNEE. listen here guys Keith Keizer hates this guy and if Chaels corner goes through with this, it will be a NC.

    • DanaWhiteTheBoss says:

      You’re an idiot.

    • Xaninho says:

      knee was legal. learn the rules before spewing nonsense dumbass.

    • barney says:

      he dislikes the vaseline on his face and always rubs it off. he can’t leave it on his hands, so he rubs it into his skin on his arms and upper chest. the two least offensive places. if he wanted to cheat like GSP, he would buy a tub of it and slather it all over his shoulders and back….or put it on his legs and shorts, to prevent a takedown. besides, the commission ruled that the relocation of applied vaseline is legal, since it gets redistributed by the fighters as soon as they lock up and grapple anyway.

      shorts grab? chael grabbed andy’s shorts as well. they were both warned. move on.

      illegal knee? i’m guessing you didn’t see the fight and just read some tinfoil-hat wearing idiotic post from a butthurt fan. if you had seen it, you would know there wasn’t any illegal knee.

      there’s no way this is a N/C, even if Chael was dumb enough to file a complaint, which he’s not. your accusations hold no water.

      nice try though.

  8. Killa87 says:

    whats with Get rid of fitch fucker talking shit about wrestling?? you are def one insecure mothafuka and let me tell you something tough guy, All the best fighters in the UFC are wrestlers so i dont know why you even open your mouth cuz you make no sense. Wrestling is one of the toughest combat sports in the world. Are you butt hurt that you can get your ass whipped by a wrestler? I bet you are you Fag, and let me tell you something you idiot, if you want to see MMA fights end up by knockout then go watch K-1 or something. This is mma and if you dont want to get taken down and layed and prayed on the learn how to defend it or take some extra jiu jitsu classes you uneducated moron.

    • B-rad says:

      Although i disagree strongly with get rid of fitch, your wrong about saying all the best fighters are wreslters, because a lot of current champions are primarily strikers, Dos Santos, Silva, Aldo and a ton of ex champs too.. But most of the fighters in UFC have a wrestling background

  9. Payperview says:

    There is pay per view in Brasl, but the numbers are yet to be revealed. The show was on broadcast tv 30 minutes after the pay per view was over.

  10. Pedro says:

    I am soooo sick of people talking about grease… here is the full fight which you can CLEARLY see yves whipes it off of anderson. knee was legal which is also shown, and as for the shorts getting grabbed…well that’s what chael gets for running away. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVCxsw6jQB4
