Read a bit of it, sounded great on paper. Am I right in thinking it said they want 155000 buyers for each PPV and at moment are getting about 55000?

Close, they have 50,000 now and want 150,000

And Dogg, their plan is to try and make the fighters more well known through TV with a weekly show and to win over more state commissions.

"In August it ran two hour long shows on Fox, which says the heavily promoted fights got a spike in viewership from the boxing show that normally ran in tht slot. The brothers are looking for a cable network to air a weekly show, the major broadcasters are a poor bet, thanks to an already fulll schedule of programming and NBC's calamitous adventure with the XFL."
