Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche UFC 157 bout brought in an estimate 500,000 buys,
The early estimates coming in from UFC 157 are that the pay-per-view headlined by the first ever women’s bout in the UFC brought in around 500,000 buys.
While Zuffa (the UFC parent company) does not release it pay-per-view numbers, UFC president Dana White mentioned that the event drew 40 percent more buys than the previous pay-per-view, which was headlined by a featherweight super-fight between Jose Aldo and Frankie Edgar.
UFC 156 was estimated to have brought in 350,000 pay-per-view buys. Rousey vs. Carmouche broke the record for the most pay-per-view buys for a female fight, which was previously held by Laila Ali and drew 125,000 buys.
UFC 157 is estimated to be the sixth largest pay-per-view card in the last year (14 events were held), and trailed only Silva vs. Sonnen II, GSP vs. Condit, Jones vs. Evans, JDS vs. Velasquez II and JDS vs. Mir.
