White: ‘PPV’s not dead, Jones To Do 750k Buys’

White upset

UFC President Dana White plans on proving the UFC still has the power to draw.

And after a terrible showing in 2014, the UFC boss plans on getting their ground back with the first show of 2015, Jones vs. DC.

“I think this fight will do 750[k buys], that’s where I place the line.¬†Everyone thinks the pay-per-view thing is dead. Pay-per-view isn’t dead. We just had a bad year.”

UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta also touched on the topic:

“This year has been the most challenging year we’ve ever had.¬†

About 80 percent of the fights we wanted to put on got canceled for whatever reason. Injury, drug test, somebody had a baby, who knows. If it could happen, it happened in 2014. I can’t wait to get to next year.”
