Despite the show being on a Friday night, instead of the more familiar Saturday and the lack of promotion of the show by Rousey, the early estimates are that the show did 1.1 million buys on pay-per-view. The number would be similar to both the Rousey vs. Holly Holm fight, which was her biggest show to date, and also in the same range as the far more heavily promoted Nov. 12 show from Madison Square Garden headlined by Conor McGregor vs. Eddie Alvarez, which was the most loaded lineup in company history.

Really hope Cruz got PPV points for this fight since him and Cody did the most work promoting this event. Still a huge Cruz fan!!!!

Honorable in victory, defeat and on the sidelines.

When this card came around, I knew about the whole "Rousey thing" (as it was called in my circles) but personally was fixated on Cruz & No Love. I knew Ronda was fighting Amanda and all, it registered it my mind that I would see that bout, the same evening as Cruz & Cody. No disrespect to the women but this card could have broken all records had Ronda did media. Sorry, it's the truth.

Ronda did no media and still pulled in over a million buys, pretty amazing. She needs to keep fighting, just change up that camp and start from the ground up. Gotta build that confidence back up and that comes with Wins.

I might be in the minority but I find that number extremely disappointing.

A million buys for a horribly promoted card where the only fighter they were promoting didn't even partake in her media obligations because she's a spoiled, disillusioned, disrespectful brat who didn't even last a minute in the ring with the person they should have been promoting. I just have to shake my head at the people on this planet sometimes...

I bet any money this starts becoming a trend with fighters they give special treatment to...
