Report: UFC 229 Broke Previous PPV Record by Wide Margin
By FCF Staff
UFC 229 was billed as the biggest card in the company’s history, and according to early estimates for the event’s pay-per-view numbers, that label was correct.
The October 6th card, which saw lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov submit superstar Conor McGregor, is believed to have sold just under 2.4 million pay-per-view buys. Those estimates were recently reported in a story from MMA Fighting’s Dave Meltzer, and the total could rise in the coming days, as a result of late buys.
UFC 202 in 2016, which was headlined by Nate Diaz – Conor McGregor 2, previously held the PPV buy record of approximately, 1.6 million buys.
UFC 229 was hosted by the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
