Earlier this week word began to spread via the L.A. Times that last weekend’s stacked UFC 225 event had been something of a flop, drawing less than 150,000 pay-per-view buys.

However, just a few days later, one of the UFC’s Attorney’s, Hunter Campbell has spoken out in a follow-up article to deny that the initial report was accurate.

According to Campbell, the event actually did, “in excess of six figures” more than the 150,000 that had been reported in the Times, describing the article as a, “material misrepresentation” of the facts.

So, the suggestion would appear to be that the event did in the region of 250,000+ pay-per-view buys, which is a little more respectable than before, though certainly nothing overly impressive for a card that featured middleweight champion Robert Whittaker against Yoel Romero, plus an interim welterweight title fight between Colby Covington and Rafael dos Anjos.
