Reports have been circulating concerning the number of pay-per-view buys for the recent UFC 159 card. Jon Jones defeated Chael Sonnen in the main event.
The event generated between 520,000 and 550,000 buys. The UFC does not confirm those numbers, so these are just through sources.
If this number is truly correct, it would place second in terms of PPV buys so far in 2013 behind only the Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz main event fight from March.
