Early estimates for UFC 217 PPV buys are high, but not ‘Notoriously’ high

UFC 217 was a stacked pay-per-view card with three UFC title fights.

For those that didn’t tune in to the action, it was a thrilling card where new champions were crowned in each title…

The main event of the evening saw the return of former UFC welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre. With previously last competing in 2013, GSP returned to the Octagon up a weight class and challenged Michael Bisping for his middleweight title. “Rush” ended up securing the win in the third round by choking Bisping unconscious after dropping him with a punch and some ground and pound. With the win, St-Pierre became the fourth fighter in history to become a two-weight UFC world champion.
