UFC 147 was plagued by card changes and was widely considered to be the worst pay-per-view offering of the last few years. MMAmania.com predicted that the event was "set for massive failure" and they were right. Only 175,000 viewers bought the irrelevant event and who could blame them.
But what about UFC 150?
An early report from MMAmania.com indicates that the card headlined by a championship fight between popular stars Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar would pull in only 190,000 buys.
Are the elite fighters of the lightweight division unable to pull in viewers? Jonathan Snowden seems to think so. His article on the poor buyrates generated by main events in lighter weight classes has a lot of interesting points, but it begs a question: If the little guys don't draw, who does?
In the interest of optimism, here is a look at the top 10 PPV draws currently in the UFC.
