The Irishman called himself the “PPV Monster”, which was no exaggeration on his part. McGregor is not only the headliner of the most successful UFC tournament in terms of broadcasts sold, but 4 of the top 5 UFC events by this indicator owe him their high numbers.

When the long-awaited feud between McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov finally moved to the octagon at UFC 229, it brought 2.4 million pay-per-view to the promotion, significantly surpassing the previous record held by McGregor’s revenge with Nate Diaz. In what is still the UFC’s best-selling PPV event. McGregor lost to Nurmagomedov that night, surrendering in the 4th round.

This was proven in his comeback against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC 246 on January 18th this year. That fight sold over a million pay-per-view streams, making it the first PPV streaming event in the world to break that mark.

Official UFC 246 figures released by Disney CEO Bob Iger showed that between December 2019 and January 18, ESPN + had 500,000 new subscribers who joined the steaming platform just to watch McGregor return to the UFC.

  • McGregor’s fight for the UFC lightweight title with Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205, after which Conor made history as the first fighter to simultaneously own UFC belts in two different categories, took 5th place with 1.3 million PPV.

However, all of these numbers seem pale in comparison with the numbers that showed his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather.

McGregor lost the “money megafight”, but only after having spent almost 10 rounds in the ring. The fight saw huge sales, becoming the second largest in the history of pay-per-view tournaments with 4.3 million PPV.
