The longterm goal for UFC is to run PPV shows as WEC to showcase the fighters in WEC and at a lower weight class.

The first WEC PPV is tenatively set for May, with a headline match of Jose Aldo Jr. vs. Urijah Faber

There is concern about competing with the Mayweather/Mosley fight in May, as well the May UFC shows from Montreal and Las Vegas.

They were going to budget the show to expect a low buyrate, around 50,000 to 60,000, so expectations would be temepered.
