UFC 215 and UFC 216 Pay-Per-View Numbers Reportedly Bottomed Out
While 2016 was a banner year for UFC Pay-Per-View events, 2017 has seen a tremendous reverse in fortunes.
According to MMA insider Jed I. Goodman, Meltzer’s reports in WrestlingObserver‘s newsletter put UFC 215 at an estimated 100,000 PPV buys, while UFC 216 is only expected to do about 20-percent better with roughly 120,000 PPV buys.
The UFC reportedly drew more than 1 million buys for five events in 2016.
With UFC 215 and UFC 216 expected to be so low, the total number of events under 200,000 buys in 2017 is currently at three.
