Perhaps Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Conor McGregor really was the biggest fight in MMA history. Dave Meltzer reports that last Saturday’s UFC 229 extravaganza sold approximately 2.4 million pay-per-views. These numbers break down to about 1.9 million sold via traditional PPV, and another 470,000-480,000 via online streaming.
This destroys the previous UFC PPV record, which was for UFC 202 (McGregor vs Diaz), which sold in the 1.5-1.7 million PPV range. So you can pretty much guarantee a Khabib-McGregor 2 will become a reality in the near future.
