Conor McGregor already proved his matches break all PPV records. He also predicts that PPV 205 at which he is to attack the lightweight title, is going to set a new PPV sales record.
“I’m almost certain we’re talking the two million mark,” McGregor said to MMAJunkie. “I feel it will break the two million mark. That’s what I’d like, and then go from there.”
In his last Octagon appearance, McGregor fought an immediate 170-pound rematch against Nate Diaz at UFC 202 and according to early estimates, the show is believed to be among the most-purchased PPVs in company history,
“[It will break the record] 100 percent – I think the money is there,” McGregor said. “For UFC 202, they backed it with no money. UFC 200 is where the advertising dollars went. UFC 202 was worth double what they spent in advertising dollars. UFC 202 broke the pay-per-view record with very little push. A very, very weak undercard. Now you have me, you have New York, you have history and you have many factors. They’re pushing the advertising dollars on it.”
UFC 205: Alvarez vs. McGregor kicks off UFC action in the state of New York on Saturday, November 12th from the Madison Square Garden arena in New York City.
