Kevin Iole predicts 100,000 - 150,000 buys for WEC 48: "On paper, WEC 48 has a great card, with Jose Aldo defending the featherweight title against Urijah Faber, a rematch between Benson Henderson and Donald Cerrone for the lightweight championship and former featherweight champion Mike Brown meeting Manny Gamburyan. But what are expectations for the sales on this? I think it does around 100,000, maybe 150,000. Is that a bomb? For the first time out, I don’t think so. But in any event, I don’t think the WEC will merge with the UFC, even though I like the idea. WEC general manager Reed Harris, matchmaker Sean Shelby and UFC matchmaker Joe Silva are all strongly against it." HT: sports.yahoo.com WEC 48: Aldo vs. Faber coverage

The first week cable estimate on UFC 106 was 330,000, which is even lower than earliest projections we had. UFC 104 with Lyoto Machida vs. Mauricio Shogun Rua came in at 450,000 in a cable estimate and 460,000 in a trending estimate. Keep in mind the general rule of thumb by nature of how numbers are reported in the U.S. is that the final number since most UFC buys are in the U.S. will wind up 10-15% above these original numbers, so it’s likely Machida-Rua ends up at 500,000, which isn’t bad, and UFC 106 winds up 360,000 to 375,000, which for that fight is a gigantic disappointment. Trending numbers right now are indicating about a 27% drop from 104. The top per capita markets were Burlington, VT, Las Vegas, Halifax, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto, Honolulu, Oklahoma City, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Antonio and Phoenix.

The Wrestling Observer(subscription required)is reporting(via MMAPayout) that UFC 104 PPV buys exceeded expectations, while UFC 106 was a bummer. Especially considering what would have been if Lesnar would have fought on the card.
