    59% of the pollers think that UFC 103 is gonna outsell the Mayweather vs. Marquez fight on Sept. 19th. Yes, MMA is getting popular, but nowhere near as popular as a champ from MEXICO CITY fighting Mayweather. Are these people just so delusional or whats going on? UFC 103 is gonna come nowhere near the PPV buys from that one fight.

    still, 59% is a high number for 18,000 people or however many took the poll.

    i was considering making this thread because it easily easily the most accurate way to tell what percentage of sherdoggers are mentally retarded. I'm baffled.

    Marquez/Mayweather Jr. isn't going to break a million buys; Marquez isn't as marketable to the mainstream crowd has Mayweather Jr's last two opponents were and only the hardcore crowd knows of him.

    When the tickets were sold it didn't do anywhere near what promoters expected it to be and even now there's plenty of seats to be had if you wanted to attend.

    UFC 103 is a pretty shit card for a PPV, even if it was a decent card it probably wouldn't outsell

    The numbers will be disappointing for Mayweather, but it will still beat UFC 103:ugh:

    Uhh what the fuck? I voted for Marquez/Mayweather Jr. without thinking twice. I meant to say the numbers aren't going to be anywhere near Mayweather Jr. wants but it'll easily beat out UFC103.

    Funny thing is that I had tickets to go to the fight but of course it got delayed. Then I got tickets to UFC103 and had to sell them off since a friend of mine is having a wedding on the same day. :wtc::wtc::wtc:

    I couldn't guess how many buys the boxing match will get with it being shown in theatres but it's going substantially larger than 103 IMHO.

    you're telling me that a poll on a MMA website is predicting that an MMA event is going to be bigger then it's rival?

    MY GOD.

    I don't know. It's not likely, since 103 isn't a really awesome card, but not ridiculous, either.

    The all-time boxing record for PPV buys is 2.15 million, for Mayweather vs De La Hoya. UFC has had 4 events sell over 1 million PPV's, and UFC 100 did over 1.7 million. Mayweather vs Hatton only sold 850,000, and UFC 91, 92, 94, 100, and 101 all passed 800k.

    Mayweather vs Marquez will very probably outsell Franklin vs Belfort, but it's not completely unthinkable that it won't.
