Yeah I hate to break it to you guys but UFC pay per views last year outsold all of the boxing pay per views combined, in a year that featured superbouts like De La Hoya/Mayweather.

It's likely that UFC's numbers will far outstrip boxing this year, with Couture/Lesnar maybe getting as many as a million buys all by itself.

I love boxing, but this thread feels like a bunch of people whistling past the graveyard.

I knew this would happen after watching there first CBS broadcast.

WWF feel with low quality overhyped fighters.

All I am saying is comparing Elite XC to HBO to dumb, Elite XC is second rate in mma.
not really considering that millions of people know kimbo and gina, but can't pick out perro angulo or gamboa from a load of beaners

you might not be able to compare the channels, but the fighters alone as far as popularity goes, goes to kimbo and gina....

Why can't people seem to see beyond ppv figures in the u.s. when sports are viewed all over the world??

i fell asleep during ufc 89 and was bored shitless, the hopkins pavlik fight had me wide awake, the ufc is putting on terrible shows these days and is also in decline with the loss and exposure of major stars ie, liddell

Of course not.... of course, 99% of the time, you don't get that in boxing either.

about 20+ from showtime
about 10 from tv azteka
about 30+ from hbo
another 10 from the vs network
about 50 from espn (counting both wednesday and friday night fights)
and ppv has about 12-18 a year
