Leading up to UFC 251, particularly after Jorge Masvidal was added to the event, there appeared to be considerable interest in the card. Now it’s being reported that the July 11th card sold well over 1 million, pay-per-view buys.

The Athletic recently reported that UFC 251 is believed to have sold approximately 1.3 million, PPV buys. If accurate, that would make it the best selling UFC event since UFC 229 in 2018, which is believed to have sold 2.4 million buys.

That event featured Khabib Nurmagomedov submitting Conor McGregor, in what was one of the biggest fights in history.

After news of UFC 251’s reported sales broke, Masvidal tweeted out this.

‘Gamebred’ faced welterweight champ Kamaru Usman in the headliner, and lost via decision. UFC 251 took place on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.
