“Proper incredible” – Conor McGregor reacts to top PPVs of 2021


Despite not being in the best of form, Conor McGregor continues to be the PPV king

Conor McGregor has fought twice in the year 2021. The first was at UFC 257 in January, against Dustin Poirier and the next, UFC 264, in July, once against Poirier.

UFC’s holding company Endeavor recently stated that they had the most successful nine months in their history.

A large part of their success was due to some marquee UFC PPV events. Although a chunk of UFC mega-events contributed to the success, only two stood out – UFC 257 and UFC 264.

In fact, these were the only PPVs that crossed a million buys. Both were headlined by McGregor.

The exact PPV buys for UFC 266 and UFC 268 haven’t been revealed yet. UFC 268 would have certainly hit the 1 million mark.

The Mac Life Twitter account posted the same on their handle. Quote tweeting the same, McGregor wrote:

“Proper Incredible! Congrats @Endeavor, @ufc.”
