New UFC flyweight champion, Sean O’Malley, has revealed UFC 292 tournament sales after Henry Cejudo claimed the numbered event failed to break the half-million PPV bar.
“I have friends at ESPN, and you want to know how Sean O’Malley’s presence affected pay-per-view sales? He sold 300,000 to 350,000 and that’s it. That’s how many pay-per-views Sean O’Malley has sold,” Triple Crown Champion wrote on social media.
O’Malley, who took the championship belt from Aljamain Sterling in the main event of the tournament, issued a rebuttal to this information, and at the same time reported on how many pay-per-view broadcasts the title fight involving Sejudo sold.
“Henry says that Aljo and I only did 350,000 PPVs. I just talked to the UFC and they told me the amount is over 570k. I was also told that Aljo and Henry have sold 135k. Also Henry is 6’5″ and a half feet tall, lol,” the UFC champ wrote.
On August 19 at UFC 292 in Boston, Sean O’Malley took the UFC flyweight title from Aljamain Sterling, finishing the champion by technical knockout in the second round. Sterling made his third successful defense of the belt three months earlier, defeating Henry Cejudo by split decision over five rounds.
