Mayweather/Marquez wins the PPV war against UFC 103…by miles

It was fun. Two of the best linguists in the pugilists sports industry verbally smacked each other in the face for the past month as to who would rack in the most PPV buys. Dana White told everyone ‘Boxing is trying to sell you the fight that no one cared about‘ while Floyd Mayweather uppercuted with:

“What you’re getting here is two of the best pound for pound fighters in the world going at it to determine who is number one, what they got there is two journeymen, bar room fighters who can’t tell a fish hook from a check hook…I’m gonna give the people at home something to talk about the next day; everyone is going to be talking about the Floyd Mayweather fight that was on last night. Ain’t gonna be no one talking about those two guys who rolled around on the floor for 3 rounds. That’s why I was and still am the PPV king.”

Well the PPV numbers were just released (Kevin Iole ftw) and…wow. Mayweather/Marquez pulled one million PPV subscribers which accounted for $52,000,000 in PPV revenue alone. UFC has not released their numbers but it’s estimated to be…well not even in the same zipcode as that ballpark. So who really wins? Everyone with a DVR. [Source]
