- Dana White hosted a Periscope Q&A session today, and had some high expectations for next month's UFC 189 card. The show features a highly anticipated bout between UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo and challenger Conor McGregor, as well as a huge Welterweight title fight.
"They'll do over a million; it's already tracking at over a million buys," White said. "Conor thinks he's going to do the biggest number ever, but to be honest and realistic, I think it's going to do over a million."
For reference, the UFC PPV record is 1.6 million for UFC 100. That show featured Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir, Dan Henderson vs. Michael Bisping, as well as a title defense from Georges St-Pierre.
- A reminder that tonight on Spike, current TNA talent and former TNA Champion Bobby Lashley has an MMA bout. Also in action is former NWA World Champion Ken Shamrock, who is taking on internet sensation Kimbo Slice in the main event. The show will air free on Spike. We'll have full results and coverage of Bellator 138 after the show.
