According to mmafighting.com, early estimates put the UFC 158 PPV over 800,000 PPV buys. Georges St. Pierre and Nick Diaz headlined the event in a bout for the UFC Welterweight Title.
The company expected the show to the their most successful show since July's UFC 148, which featured Anderson Silva's return match with Chael Sonnen. St-Pierre had done numbers in the 750,000 to 800,000 range in previous fights with B.J. Penn, Dan Hardy, Josh Koscheck and Jake Shields. Due to early estimates, this show is expected to finish slightly ahead of those fights.
