February 2, 2011 at 3:33 am #25178
561,000 viewers (853,000 peak)
didnt the last ufc do 300,000?February 2, 2011 at 3:42 am #113359
Fight for the Troops peaked with 2.5 million viewers. Fail, son. Fail.February 2, 2011 at 3:45 am #113360
i don’t understand your posts. what are you trying to prove?February 2, 2011 at 3:47 am #113361
Seriously, this shit is just goofy now.February 2, 2011 at 3:51 am #113362
But one all strikeforce can muster and one is basically a fight night. Compare it with a challengers card.February 2, 2011 at 4:02 am #113364
I wonder if he’s in a competition with Volds?February 2, 2011 at 4:40 am #113366
Also, it just so happens you can get a free year of Showtime right now from most providers as a trial offer. They won’t do a fifteenth of that on PPV.February 2, 2011 at 5:13 am #113372
Fight for the troops was on free tv. I’m talking about the last ppv.February 2, 2011 at 5:14 am #113373
Phx – my point is youre a fucking idiot.February 2, 2011 at 5:22 am #113375
yeah 125 did 350,000 buys with a gate of 12,000 attendance.
iron prelims got 829,000
The fight for the troops was a free cable event with all the patriotic stuff going for it, so it’s hardly a good comparison.February 2, 2011 at 5:28 am #113376
Showtime is like $12 a month org basically free if you have the highest package. UFC PPVs cost like 4 months worth of a channel …of course there is going to be a higher turn out. Just like how a so called free card, its not free if you pay money jackass, gets 5x the views.February 2, 2011 at 5:29 am #113377
Nor is putting up a card with two championship fights on a premium cable network against a card beset by injuries and featuring the lowest-drawing champion in the organization a good comparison. See how that street goes two ways, chief? Your Strikeforce nuthuggery would be a lot more interesting if it weren’t always couched in the antiquated rhetoric of the UFC/PRIDE forum wars.February 2, 2011 at 6:42 am #113379
you don’t have anything left in the gas tank. you are regurgitating yourself. you are in a loop, cycling through everything you have already said before and getting the same feedback. it’s not about UFC vs. Strikeforce…Strikeforce vs this or that…i don’t watch shows for that reason. I watch it for the fights. I’ll shit on the UFC just as easily as Strikeforce if something is retarded, you are a retarded-master of fallacies.February 2, 2011 at 7:03 am #113380
Viewers vs. buys
Do you think every one of those PPV buys watched the event solo? Plus bars, etc.
guaranteed the actual “viewership” of that PPV matched SF’s, at least.
Or, switched around, if this comparison somehow “proved” SF being more popular or successful or something, why aren’t they running PPV’s?
Since, y’know, the UFC’s 300k PPV buys gets them more money than does SF getting 900k to watch on Showtime.February 2, 2011 at 9:58 am #113389
Oh oooh wow neat… So do you think their 561000 viewers will keep them in business?
Cable vs PPV? You have no comparison. The sad part is you just brought to everyones’ attention just how bad things are going for SF. I hope they can at least stay around long enough for this tourney to play out, I really wanna see it.
