Chuck Liddell vs Tito Ortiz III Did Just TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND Pay-Per-View Buys
TheMacLife- Oscar De La Hoya’s pre-fight prediction of selling somewhere in the region of 400,000 pay-per-views to last weekend’s much-maligned third bout between Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell appears to have been substantially off the mark.
Per separate reports from Yahoo! and The LA Times, the event sold somewhere between 25,000 and 30,000 pay-per-views at $40 a pop.
Hey Tito, how many pay-per-view buys do you believe your third fight with Chuck Liddell will do?
“To be a real success, a low number is 200. I mean, that’s shooting super low. If me and Chuck do 200,000 pay-per-view buys, we shouldn’t even be in the business.”
What about you, Oscar? As the promoter of this event, how many pay-per-view buys do you believe Liddell/Ortiz will do?
“Well, I mean – 200,000, 300,000, 400,000 is a no brainer given the fact they’ve been involved in huge events over at the UFC.”
