Conor McGregor is one of the highest paid MMA fighters and has earned an estimated $10 million fighting American Nate Diaz, even if he lost the much publicized fight. A UFC featherweight champion, McGregor was moving up two weight divisions or 25 lbs to the welterweight division in order to face Diaz.

Gavin and Joe Maloof are the brothers who were the ones who placed their bet of $880,000 on Mayweather to defeat McGregor. And if the Maloof brothers will win their bet, they will give the proceeds to charity. The wealthy businessmen were the former owners of the Sacramento Kings.

Brock Lesnar has 7.7 million PPV buys, an extra ordinary feat since he has a few fights in the UFC compared to the other fighters who are mentioned.

McGregor’s first three headline fights was able to outsell the entire UFC promotion for a whole year. McGregor's last four mega matches against Jose Aldo, Nate Diaz twice, and Eddie Alvarez have combined for an estimated 6 million PPV buys.

While GSP Georges Saint-Pierre owns the record for the most total PPV buys, Conor "The Notorious" pactically grabs every other PPV record. McGregor has sold an amazing 6.85 million buys in a period of fifteen months only. Brock Lesnar’s 970,000 buys per event average paled in comparison to McGregor’s estimated 1.35 million per event.

The year 2010 was the UFC’s best ever in PPV sales. It garnered 8 million buys with GSP and Lesnar being their most popular commodities. In 2010 GSP and Lesnar fought 4 times and gathered around 3.5 million buys. McGregor drew 4.85 million buys in 2016 in just three fights. Conor McGregor not only sells better than GSP and Lesnar, he sells better than both of them combined.
