Reports have been circulating concerning the number of pay-per-view buys for the recent UFC 159 card.

The event featured UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones defeating Chael Sonnen – sorry if that was still a spoiler – in the main event.

According to MMAFighting.com’s Dave Meltzer, the event generated between 520,000 and 550,000 buys. The UFC does not confirm those numbers, so they are just through sources.

If the number is true, it would place second in terms of PPV buys so far in 2013 behind only the Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz main event fight from March.
