UFC is that big? I never even heard of Mir. I only know Brock becuase I use to watch the WWE. I guarantee, EVERY hardcore UFC fan has heard of both Manny and Mayweather.
Is UFC big in other countries? I.E The Philippines
JD is right...it probably will do close to those numbers. Yes, UFC IS that big. They've consistently been doing 500-800,000 for pretty much all of their PPV events. Sure, every hardcore UFC fan has heard of both Manny and Mayweather, but it doesn't mean they're going to watch them fight. However, as you just mentioned, EVERY hardcore WWE fan has heard of Brock Lesnar and they're DEFINITELY going to be tuning in tonight to see him fight. That's part of the reason why UFC 100 will likely do more than 1 million buys...because not only are they pulling in all of the MMA fans, but they're also pulling in a lot of wrestling fans as well. Not to mention, UFC 100 in and of itself is a pretty big event...the UFC Fan Expo that they're doing in Vegas right now is HUGE...Vegas is buzzing right now. This is a HUGE weekend for the UFC and yes, it is big in other countries...Brazil, UK, Germany, Japan...a lot of countries.
