This according to the LA Times Lance Pugmire who recently reported that Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz 3 buys could be as low as 30,000.

“Industry source tells me the Liddell-Ortiz PPV buys may be as low as 30,000….but the Tiger-Phil golf might reach 1 million (all refunded, but a glimpse of what a low price can generate).”

That is a far cry from the 200,000 pay-per-view buys the former UFC light heavyweight champions were hoping to obtain from their trilogy.

Adding salt to the wound is the fact that Yahoo Sports is reporting the Golden Boy MMA promoted event resulted in just 25,000 buys.

“LAT reporting #LiddellOrtiz3 PPV buys may be as low as 30k. Yahoo reporting they’ve heard 25k.”

Tito Ortiz defeated Chuck Liddell in the very first-round of their fight last Saturday night in Inglewood. “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” dropped “The Iceman” with a right hand and then promptly put him away with ground and pound.
