Not bad, not great.
Maybe there is hope?
Nah.. They will be done after their next show.
What was the buy price? $50? So that pulled in $10 million from PPV? not bad, not great.
Yeah I think it was $45..
But the PPV company takes either 50 or 60% - so we're talking about $4 million'ish in PPV buys.. The live gate wasn't much either..
They paid Arlovski $1.5 million for that fight, so 1/3 of their budget was spent on him alone.
Didnt they pay out over 1/3 of that in fighter salaries alone? They have to be getting killed.
revenue, not budget
Are you sure the PPV company takes 50-60%? That seems ridiculously high. Any sources?
Thats pretty accurate
everything I have always heard was around 50%
jesus that sucks for them.
are those figures domestic or international?
It was only offered in a few countries. That is total. It was broadcasted on Bravo in the UK and apparently 82k viewed it - but I'm unsure if they were pay viewers or if it was available on cable.
production wise, it was much better than their first show,
but they need to lose that guy who sounds like he's 98 years old doing the interviews
and Golden Boy gets 20% cut from their PPV deal
I doubt PPV takes 50-60% of the revenue. thats just RIDICULOUS.
Based on what? What you personally think is fair?
You're a fucking faggot. Stay in the main forum.
"I'm leaving forever guys..... My girlfriend is mad at me"
Didn't they say they needed 150K to break even?
And 50-60% cut from this mysterious "PPV company" seems a bit high.
Mysterious PPV company? Its all one fucking company
What's the name of the fucking company?
I know all the old sporting events used to go through a company called Sports View, but I am not sure if they are the only/same one still used
Just looked it up and Sports View was the first but there's a bunch of them now.
And 50-60% still seems like a high number, it doesn't even make sense.
its probably between 45-60% gotta realise they have to pay all the cable companies for unning it
afflicition probably walked away with 25-30/for each buy
