According to the latest reports, UFC 274 pay-per-view event was a great success and it became the highest-selling PPV of this year so far.
Sports Business Journal reported that ESPN+ sold more than 400K PPV buys for UFC 274 that took place last Saturday at the Footprint Center.
The card of UFC 274 topped all the PPV events ranging from UFC 270 to UFC 273. These events featured bouts like Francis Ngannou vs Cirly Gane, Israel Adesanya vs Robert Whittaker, and Jorge Masvidal vs Colby Covington.
Charles Oliveira vs Justin Gaethje headlined the PPV last Saturday. Oliveira missed the weight and hence he was forced to relinquish the title. Currently, the title is vacant, but it was confirmed by Dana White that Oliveira would be one-half of the title fight.
The co-main event of UFC 274 featured Rose Namajunas defending her title against Carla Esparza. The highlight of this event was Michael Chandler’s KO against Tony Ferguson. He also earned a Performance of the Night bonus for his lethal kick.
