Report: UFC 231 Pay-Per-View Does Approximately 240,000 - 300,000 Buys


Earlier this month, UFC Featherweight Champion Max Holloway successfully defended the title against Brian Ortega, scoring a fourth round TKO in the main event of UFC 231.

The show, which is one of two UFC pay-per-views that air in December (with UFC 232 being the other), brought in approximately 240,000 to 300,000 pay-per-view buys according to Dave Meltzer. Other fights on the pay-per-view saw Valentina Shevchenko defeat Joanna Jedrzejczyk to win the UFC Women’s Flyweight Title, Gunnar Nelson defeat Alex Oliveira, Hakeem Dawodu defeat Kyle Bochniak and Thiago Santos defeat Jimi Manuwa

If the report is accurate, it would be Holloway’s highest selling pay-per-view of the four events the featherweight champion has headlined. This was also the only pay-per-view card that Holloway headlined that had two title bouts on it. This was also the first pay-per-view main event for Ortega, who has previously headlined “Fight Night” cards on Fox Sports 1.

There is no word at this time as to whom Holloway would fight next, as former UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar (#3), Renato Moicano (#4) and Chad Mendes (#5) are the only fighters left in the UFC Featherweight Division top fifteen that have yet to challenge Holloway for the UFC Featherweight Title.
