04:41 PM ET 12.19 | In November, UFC 167 was the promotion's 20th anniversary event and one of the biggest draws in the sport, Georges St-Pierre, was in the headlining bout. After digging through the numbers, it is estimated that the pay-per-view buy rate for the event was an estimated 600,000-650,000. It is obviously a lower number than would have been expected for a show featuring St-Pierre, but it is still a solid number that the promotion should be happy with. For next weekend's UFC 168 pay-per-view featuring two title fights -- Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva II for the middleweight championship and Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate II for the women's bantamweight title, we should expect to see a larger number. Many believe that this could be the UFC's largest event, which would mean the show needs to do more than 1,600,000 buys.

Could not care less about the ladies match.

But I've got my popcorn ready for Silva-Weidman Redux.
