Why are a whole bunch of countries watching for free while the USA and Canada pay the price. I think charging around 15 dollars worldwide would be a better alternative.
Half of those buys are live streams through ufc app on various devices. Cable and satellite services are not the only option for American audiences but we still have to pay full price. Thing is they make their money and the people who pay full price are the same who would pay at half price.
$45.5 million in ppv alone ain't too bad. That doesn't include any international deals, sponsorships, live gate, or any other income. Not too bad considering they spend (just speculating here) probably less than 5 mil in payouts to fighters, staff, and advertising
