    Not bad really, shows Jones is a good draw no matter what he does, sometimes any news is good news as long as it brings eyes to the game...not to mention he is still one of the best and no one has ever beat him.

    Yep, clearly Jones is still a draw, the second biggest in MMA right now
    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Like I said pre fight, the shitshow just added a whole bunch of buys. That's how PPV works these days, probably always did too.

    It now appears as if the buy rate will be closer to 700K

    Still a very good number......likely lost 200k buys so the UFC don't need to pony up PPV points!

    I would normally agree with you in regards to UFC being shady but with PPV buys, it's very closely monitored as it is an "official" form of payment for the fighters and the UFC would have to show numbers from the providers to the fighters and their management team

    Yeah, but they don't just use providers any more...….PPV is also done via UFC.com/Fight Pass......those numbers are only available to the UFC brass.

    I would say not if a fighters salary is dependent on those numbers, they would have to provide proof of numbers
