I was hoping the results would be lost forever so I could get back in the race.  I just have a hard time keeping up because of work sometimes and if I miss one event it's not too bad but more than that I quit posting picks because it's too much ground to make up.  Oh well.

I'm not sure if I should start a new thread, but they are boxers and MMA fighters that have been listed as Biogenesis clients. The only person from either sport whose name actually got out when the story first broke earlier this year was Yuriorkis Gamboa. Everyone seems to be expecting some Earth shattering names, but it could be some guys from MMA past with a history of PEDs like Ken Shamrock who are on the list. So far, a lot of people are going with a bunch of people from the Blackzilians.

Meltzer reports that UFC 161: Evans vs. Henderson did 150,000 buys, setting the all-time low for PPVs since 2005.  Also, he pulled one of his classic Meltzer moves by readjusting UFC 162 from 800,000 buys to 550,000 buys.  Eh, what's 250,000 here or there?

That low buy rate for Evans vs. Hendo is a good thing, and hopefully a wake up call for the UFC. That card would have been crap for a FOX show, let alone PPV. Maybe a few more buy rates in the 100k range and they'll start stacking their PPVs a bit more.

 

Also that seems low for Silva vs. Weidman, but they really didn't do a good job explaining to causal fans who Weidman is and why they should watch. I think most people thought it would just be Silva vs. The bum of the month part 8,201. I know I had to convince my brother (who's an average casual fan) it would be worth watching.
