Whereas the WWE moved to PPV based events, the UFC's end game is to move to free television. The product is hot right now, and people will buy anything. Showing what kind of profits they can turn by pumping out the PPV's makes a strong case to premium sports channels like HBO that the UFC is something worth picking up. If they kept the current pace indefinetely they would burn out, but Zuffa has bigger plans than that. They want to be like NASCAR and have weekly events on free television.
