A slight miscalculation

Looks like those mad scientists Zuffa hired to estimate PPV numbers for UFC 91 forgot to divide by 2:

Although initial estimates peg the event’s total number of pay-per-view “buys” at approximately 800,000, a source within the cable industry told that the figure is likely closer to 700,000 with the possibility of rising to 750,000 to 800,000 in the coming weeks.

It’s not like 700k+ in PPV sales is anything to be unhappy about. And it’s not like we expect fight promoters to lay off the hyperbole when hyping up a fight. Still, just to make sure: you heard Dana’s spin on the numbers, and now here’s the reality of the situation.
