Midnight Mania! UFC 274 best-selling event of the year, breaks 400k PPV buys


Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Perhaps unexpectedly, UFC 274 proved to be rather big business for the promotion. Sports Business Journal reports that the event sold over 400k pay-per-view (PPV) buys, making it the best-selling UFC event of 2022. While this is the first event of the year in which PPV numbers have been leaked, we now have a ceiling for the previous four events of the year.

UFC 270-UFC 273 were headlined by Francis Ngannou vs. Ciryl Gane, Israel Adesanya vs. Robert Whittaker 2, Jorge Masvidal vs. Colby Covington, and Alexander Volkanovski vs. Chan Sung Jung. Neither the Heavyweight title unification nor a grudge match featuring a proven PPV draw surpassed Charles Oliveira vs. Justin Gaethje, an excellent title fight with little additional drama.

It’s a big win for “Do Bronx,” who received PPV points despite his issues on the scale. Interestingly enough, Oliveira’s previous two title fights also had the buy information released: UFC 269: “Oliveira vs. Poirier ”sold 500k while UFC 262: “Oliveira vs. Chandler ”clocked in at an estimated 300k. Oliveira’s reputation as a hugely entertaining champion and consistent finisher is really paying off!

The next major PPV for the promotion is UFC 275 in Singapore on June 11, headlined by Glover Teixeira vs. Jiri Prochazka and featuring a second title match between Valentina Shevchenko and Taila Santos.
