UFC 220 took place on January 20, headlined by a pair of title bouts as UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic defeated Francis Ngannou and UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier defeated Volkan Oezdemir. The show was the first pay-per-view of 2018 and only the second event the promotion put on this year.
The estimate buy rates are in and MMA Fighting is reporting that UFC 220 brought in around 340,000 to 380,000 buys. This is similar to the estimated buy rates for UFC 219, which was headlined by UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cyborg defeating former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm.
Other fights on the pay-per-view saw Calvin Kattar defeat Shane Burgos, Gian Villante defeat Francimar Barroso and Rob Font defeat Thomas Almeida.
It should be noted that since the UFC isn’t a publicly traded company, pay-per-view buy rates do not have to be released publicly.
There has already been a second UFC pay-per-view this year and that was UFC 221 in February, but the estimated buy rates have yet to be revealed for that event.
Up next for the UFC and pay-per-view is UFC 222, which is going to be headlined by a UFC Women’s Featherweight Title bout as Cyborg defends against Yana Kunitskaya.
