BE Roundtable: Will 'Rousey vs. Holm' break 1 million PPV buys?

The Bloody Elbow roundtable debates whether or not Ronda Rousey will break the 1 million buys mark for her UFC PPV main event vs. Holly Holm this weekend in Melbourne, Australia.

UFC 193 is just two days away, and all eyes are on Ronda Rousey. The undefeated UFC women's bantamweight champion and global superstar headlines a stadium show in Melbourne, Australia against unbeaten former boxing champion, Holly Holm. Rousey is a massive favorite to defeat Holm, which is understandable considering ... well ... you've watched Ronda Rousey fight.

There's no denying Rousey's starpower anymore, as she's spent the past several months appearing on TV talk shows, sports networks, radio programs, magazine features, and everything else under the sun. Her last pay-per-view (UFC 190 vs. Bethe Correia) exceeded all expectations by raking in an estimated 900,000 buys. Now the next goal is to join the likes of Georges St-Pierre and Brock Lesnar as 1,000,000 buy PPV sellers in MMA.

So will she do it? The Bloody Elbow roundtable is debating that right now. Be sure to refresh regularly for updated responses. There's also a poll for you to predict the UFC 193 buyrate at the bottom of the page, and this time I actually provided more than one option.
