Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor managed 4.3m PPV buys

That means the fight failed to beat the record of 4.6m set by Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao

And what about the WWE?

Although the Mayweather-McGregor pay-per-view total is nearly double the third biggest fight of all time, the 2007 bout between Oscar De La Hoya and Mayweather which had 2.48 million buys.

A one billion deal seems no where close to what UFC main event fighters have made in the past. Mayweather has been enjoying retirement, while the UFC star has been involved in a number of controversies in recent months. What's a real fight?

UFC president Dana White quickly refuted those claims and even stated he'd sue Pacquiao and his representatives if they attempted to do so.

Conor McGregor taunts Floyd Mayweather during their bout in August.

Diaz has been chasing a rubber match ever since McGregor avenged his defeat and that fight is certainly the one that the majority of UFC fans want to see most.

Instead, he elected to take on Floyd Mayweather in a highly lucrative boxing match this past August, suffering a TKO defeat to "Money" in the 10th round. Having broken the novelty against Mayweather in his first foray into boxing, however, it would be highly unlikely that there would be anywhere near the interest that last summer's "Money Fight" managed.

Last week, Pacquiao admitted he'd opened talks with McGregor over a big-money fight in April next year. He has not fought in the Octagon since November 2016, and he has never defended a UFC championship.
