For the prediction that UFC President Dana White made about UFC 162 trending to about 800,000 buys was a little bit off.
According to Dave Meltzer from MMAFighting.com, UFC 162 featuring Chris Weidman knocking off Anderson Silva to win the UFC middleweight championship did about 550,000 buys on pay-per view.
The promotion based around the fight was that fighters were picking Weidman to knock off Silva and it seems like it was a success for the organization.
The number of buys for UFC 162 would be right around the projection of UFC 159 when Jon Jones defeated Chael Sonnen to make the second highest number of buys in 2013. The highest number of buys would be 950,000 buys for UFC 158 when Georges St-Pierre defeated Nick Diaz.
