Ratings Report: Jones vs. Cormier Pay-Per-View A Massive Success

Jon Jones UFC 182 weigh in

‘UFC 182: Jones vs. Cormier’ was the most successful pay-per-view for the UFC in over a year’s time.

Dave Meltzer of MMAFighting.com has the report:

As was expected with the buildup, UFC 182 was the most successful event for the company since UFC 168, with early cable estimates of the show headlined by Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier for the UFC light heavyweight title coming in at between 740,000 and 820,000 pay-per-view buys.


Dana White had predicted 750,000 buys before the show, and then after the show said that the preliminary word he got is that they would beat that number handily.
