Nick Diaz didn't just send Georges St-Pierre to his "dark place" at UFC 158 – he also propelled GSP to a personal sales record. Dave Meltzer is reporting that UFC 158 is trending to top 800,000 in pay-per-view buys, which makes it the top selling PPV headlined by St-Pierre.
800,000+ buys for UFC 158 would place it 11th on our all-time top selling UFC PPV list. It also is the company's best selling pay-per-view since last summer's Anderson Silva-Chael Sonnen rematch. GSP's "dark place" = $2 million plus in PPV bonuses for him. Not a bad tradeoff.
