With the announced Bellator NYC PPV i thought it'd be interesting to see what numbers the first attempt did and what the line up was.

Bellator 120 lineup

(Main event)Lhw tourney Final
Rampage vs King Mo

(Co-main)Interim Lw title fight
Michael Chandler vs Will Brooks

(Lhw featured bout)
Storm Shlemenko vs Tito Ortiz

(Hw Tourney Final)
Blagoi Ivanov vs Alexander Volkov

(Ww featuring bout)
MVP vs Rickey Rainey

They also had fights leading up to the PPV

Cheick Kongo vs Eric Smith,Nate Jolly vs Marcin Held,Shahbulat Shamhalaev vs Fabricio guerriero and Goiti Yamauchi vs Mike Richman.


Live gate numbers = $578,684
Ppv buys = 65,000 or 100,000(dave meltzer initially estimated 65,000 buys but it was later reported to be 100,000 buys)

Before paying fighters or other expenses the assumed money made is...

$2,853,684 or $7,078,684(depending which buyrates you want to believe)also im doing this at 35$ ppv price since it fluctated from 30-39 depending on what provider you had.




I dont know exact fighter payouts or venue expenses etc but it looks like they made a decent profit.



The current billing of Bellator NYC is as follows...

(Main Event Lhw Grudge Match)Wandy vs Chael

(Co-Main Hw bout)Fedor vs Meathead

(Lw Title Fight)Michael Chandler vs Brent Primus

(Ww Title fight)Douglas Lima vs Lorenz Larkin


They also announced a full 4 fight event bellator 180 to lead in to the Ppv,as the fights are announced i will fill in the card.

Aaron pico vs ????

Chinzo Machida vs James Gallagher
My question is .....do you think this coming ppv will do better numbers?



With a much lower overhead then the UFC,Bellator can actually make a good profit if they are able to get a solid card and interest going for this event.

What do you guys think?
