platform using their electronic program guide, an
automated telephone system, or through a live customer
service representative. There has been an increasing
number of pay-per-views distributed via streaming
video online, either alongside or in lieu of carriage
through television providers. In 2012, the popular
video sharing platform YouTube began to allow partners
to host live PPV events on the platform.
distributed through PPV typically include boxing,
mixed martial arts, professional wrestling, and concerts.
In the past, PPV was often used to distribute telecasts
of feature films, as well as adult content such as
pornographic films, but the growth of digital cable
and streaming media caused these uses to be subsumed
by video on demand systems (which allow viewers to
purchase and view pre-recorded content at any time)
instead, leaving PPV to focus primarily on live event
programs and combat sports.

The battle between boxing and UFC - June 2018
On Saturday the two premier combat sports on the planet
boxing and the Ultimate Fighting Championship
(UFC) go head-to-head via two world championship
pay-per-view (PPV) bouts featuring rising Australian
superstars, Jeff Horn and Robert Whittaker.
undefeated Horn, 30, is the former schoolteacher who
shocked the world and 50,000 people packed
into Suncorp Stadium in 2017 when he defeated
boxing legend and WBO welterweight champion Manny
Pacquiao by unanimous decision in the "Battle
weekend he defends his WBO title in Las Vegas against
former unified lightweight world champion Terence
Crawford, who is unbeaten in 32 fights and ranks in
the top three pound-for-pound boxers globally. Betting
markets pitch Horn as a rank underdog, with a scant
11.8 per cent chance of winning.
the same evening in Chicago the UFC's middleweight
world champion, Whittaker, puts his title on the line
in the 70-square-metre "Octagon" against
explosive Cuban contender Yoel Romero. In July 2017
Whittaker unexpectedly captured Australia's inaugural
UFC belt when he prevailed in a close decision over
Romero, who was a silver medallist at the Sydney Olympics
in freestyle wrestling. A rematch was booked after
Romero knocked out the other top middleweight contender
at the UFC 221 event in Perth in February 2018. This
time bookies have made Whittaker the slight (60 per
the punches, the trash talk and the title belts, the
big fight night shapes as an important if somewhat
unintended test of the primacy of these sports.
With local heroes in each, which fighting "code"
will inspire the most Australians to pay $49.95 to
view the Horn fight or $54.95 to see the UFC? The
winner of that battle will be sitting pretty.
boxing is bifurcated by numerous conflicting federations
(the WBA, WBC, IBF, IBO and WBO to name but a few),
the UFC is unusual in sporting terms insofar as one
company owns its entire league. Other global exceptions
along these lines include the multibillion-dollar
Formula 1 and MotoGP franchises that run the premier
auto and motorbike racing competitions.
soccer, baseball, NFL, basketball, rugby and cricket,
teams are individually owned and the contest governed
by associations that may or may not be controlled
by their sport's participants. The UFC's ownership
of the world's richest mixed-martial arts (MMA) league
allows it to compel the very best athletes to go toe-to-toe
with one another (or else get kicked off the roster).
This brutal meritocracy contrasts with boxing where
leading fighters regularly accumulate long win streaks
by avoiding one another for years, much to the frustration
August 2017 the two domains temporarily combined in
the world's most lucrative PPV contest when Irish
UFC superstar Conor McGregor fought the best pound-for-pound
boxer of all-time, Floyd Mayweather. The event was
held under boxing rules in what was McGregor's first
professional bout. While Mayweather eventually triumphed
in the 10th round, experts gave McGregor the opening
fight itself was a staggering commercial success,
generating a record 6.7 million PPV buys. Coupled
with the gate, this produced more than $US655 million
($856 million) in revenue. Mayweather, 41, took home
$US300 million while 29-year-old McGregor walked away
with $US100 million.
an exclusive interview with AFR Weekend, the UFC's
long-time president, Dana White, reveals that Mayweather
will likely enter the UFC's Octagon in a rematch against
McGregor. Asked about this extraordinary possibility,
White says, "I think it is probably going to
sporting rivalry will explode again on Saturday when
Horn and Whittaker's world championship PPV contests
collide. According to both sides this embarrassing
scheduling conflict was never meant to happen. And
everyone blames Horn's legendary promoter and Top
Rank CEO, Bob Arum, who has had a notoriously toxic
relationship with the UFC.
frustrating," Horn tells AFR Weekend. "We
will definitely lose [financially] as a result,"
he says, pointing to Top Rank. His trainer and manager,
Jeff Rushton, who also runs $40 million in global
funds at Rushton Financial Services, confirms the
"annoying" clash "will cost Jeff",
suggesting the "promoters should have organised
a better date".
tried to change the date, but Top Rank said 'no way'
and we now accept we will lose some monetary value."
arguably one of the top non-tech trades of this century,
White and his two billionaire buddies, casino magnates
Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta, bought the UFC in 2001
for $US2 million and flipped it 15 years later for
$US3.8 billion (they retain small minority interests).
UFC's president does not pull his punches when asked
why PPV buyers must choose between two Aussie world
championships on the same night. "Bob Arum has
dementia and probably didn't even know that we were
staging a huge UFC event featuring several high-profile
Australians on that date," White claims.
is one of the guys who helped kill boxing," he
continues. "He's talked shit about me and the
Fertitta brothers for years: how much money we were
making; how this sport would never work; and after
decades of our success he's now trying to copy every
f---ing thing we do."
promoters are indeed trying to emulate the UFC's event
management approach that sells an entertainment experience
41 times a year in cities around the world rather
than two specific athletes. Whereas a UFC card normally
has 15 fights, including multiple headlining acts,
boxing tends to focus on promoting a single bout,
like Golovkin versus Canelo or Joshua versus Klitschko.
If either athlete drops out, the event is cancelled.
While it's also common for UFC cards to lose their
main event in the days prior due to injury, the show
always marches on, thanks to the UFC's deep roster
of more than 600 contracted athletes.
what could be a disruptive shake-up for the industry,
White says the UFC's parent entity, Zuffa LLC, plans
on taking on boxing's incumbents with a new league
that it will own and control. "We will not work
with the WBA, WBC, IBF, IBO, and WBO organisations,"
interest is definitely there all the fighters
have reached out, other promoters have contacted us
and everybody's keen," White says. "The
question is how I make it work with bandwidth maxed
out right now running the UFC's business."
Whittaker's UFC 225 title defence on Saturday there
are two other Australians on the main card: undefeated
Indigenous heavyweight Tai Tuivasa, who fights ex-UFC
champ Andrei Arlovski; and Megan Anderson, a world
champion at the female promotion, Invicta, who will
take on another former UFC champ in Holly Holm.
'Rough and tough'
what explains the wave of Australian fighters ascending
the UFC's ranks, White offers a primal response: "I've
said this for a very long time ever since we went
to Australia that it is a really rough and
tough land that breeds equally tough people."
things that live on this planet that can kill you
are found in Australia from great white sharks
to snakes, spiders, jellyfish and crocodiles,"
White says. "Aussies love the fight culture
whether it is becoming a fighter or being a fan
and it has quickly become our third biggest PPV market."
explanation is that Australian fighters, who are normally
powerful strikers, often have backgrounds in rugby
where the main game is avoiding being taken to the
ground. Whittaker, Mark Hunt, Tuivasa, and Alexander
Volkanovski were all professional or semi-pro rugby
fact I spent years playing footy trying to stay on
my feet helps a lot and creates a good athletic base
to defend takedowns for guys like us who don't have
the same grappling experience as opponents from the
US, South America and Europe," Tuivasa says.
barrel-chested Tuivasa, known as "Bam Bam",
has won all seven of his professional fights via dramatic
first-round knockouts. The 25-year-old was born in
Sydney to an Indigenous mother and a Samoan father,
and is proud of this heritage, carrying an Aboriginal
flag into the Octagon with him.
to play for the Sydney Roosters at age 17, Tuivasa
found "living away from family and friends hard"
and "started gambling more than I should have".
He left rugby league to return home and pursue a full-time
MMA career, and is now married to the sister of another
Aussie UFC prospect, Tyson Pedro.
biggest casualty of this weekend's clash between the
boxing and UFC tribes will inevitably be their diluted
PPV revenues. Horn's trainer, Rushton, who was ironically
a five-times national MMA champion, hopes most pubs
will screen both events simultaneously.
need not, however, lose sleep over the fighters' financials.
Horn will earn $2.5 million for stepping into the
ring against Crawford, making him one of Australia's
best-paid athletes. The relatively unknown Whittaker
took home $573,000 in his first UFC title challenge
in 2017. That number will multiply given he has now
negotiated a cut of the lucrative PPV pie in addition
to significantly higher base money.
the long run it is conceivable that we see these sports
combine into a single league if Zuffa achieves its
goal of taking over boxing, which could have a limited
half-life as a distinct discipline.
