With UFC 103 and a boxing bout between Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Juan Manuel Marquez both set for September 19th, which sport will get more PPV views? and will the UFC finally not only be known as “the fastest growing sport” to just bein “The Sport”?

Boxing, Floyd Mayweather, UFC on September 2, 2009 by thatmmaguy
Neither Dana White (President of UFC) or Richard Schaefer (CEO of Goldon Boy Promotions) seem to be concerned about the others brand. Dana White has gone on record to say that he isn’t concerned because of his belief that Mayweather only sells when he is fighting another name and Schaefer says he is also not concerned because Mayweather pulls in an average of $900,000 in PPV buys. All this hearsay being said but which is more probable?
To be honest, I havn’t heard anyone who is excited about this Mayweather bout. It’s a waste of money and we already know what is going to happen. Another KO for Mayweather. Not even those hardcore boxing fans are interested in this fight. This boxing bout is like if the UFC were to headline a match between Brock Lesnar and Tim Hague ( most recently got KO’ed in 7 seconds at UFC 102). It makes no sense to have the fight and also makes even less sense when you put it up against the constantly rising UFC.
This is also very exciting for me though because of all these “sports guys” that I argue with that claim the UFC will fold in due time. If the UFC surpasses this boxing bout then that will further state my case that the “UFC is here to stay and is getting bigger by the day”. MMA guys can rhyme too Don King.
