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.
