    damn they didnt break even on the fighter pay. I hope they made enough on the ppv sales to cover the fighters salarys

    Well this company doesnt seem to be run by retards, so I'm pretty sure there ready to be in the red quite some time.

    they would need to sell about 40,000 ppvs at 49.99 to make up the other 2 million (numbers might be off). What was their goal in ppv sales?
     
  5. little known fact: Anderson Silva KO'd Julius Irving after his quick win over James Irvin
     
  6. cable providers take roughly 50% of PPV sales
