UFC 205: Conor McGregor predicts about UFC 205
UFC 205: Conor McGregor predicts UFC 205 in New York City will ‘break the 2-million mark’. UFC 205 is going to be huge. With a slew of current champions, former champions, all-time promotional greats and a main event involving the insanely popular Conor McGregor, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has done a tremendous job in ensuring the Nov. 12 event will set New York City ablaze.
According to McGregor:
UFC 205 will do the biggest pay-per-view (PPV) numbers in the history of UFC. Remember, the Irishman has been part of some of the largest cards of all time, including his recent welterweight rematch opposite Nate Diaz at UFC 202 that did a whopping 1.65 million PPV buys. It broke the previous record held by UFC 100 and UFC 196, which was McGregor’s first tilt with Diaz.
“I’m almost certain we’re talking the 2-million mark,” said McGregor in a recent interview with MMA Junkie. “I feel it will break the 2-million mark. That’s what I’d like, and then go from there.”
“(It will break the record) 100 percent – I think the money is there,” added McGregor. “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.”
