Top 5 PPV Events in UFC History | Sanabul

You may not like it, but you have to agree… Conor McGregor sells Pay-Per-View Events. Out of the top 10 revenue generating events in UFC history, Conor was headlining 8 of them. Now, Conor can’t sell a PPV by himself of course, there were many factors involved with these events such as feuds between him and his opponent, the speculation surrounding the outcome of the fights, as well as those on the Co-Main, and undercard. 

1. Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Conor McGregor

This event speaks for itself, possibly the best P4P fighter the UFC has ever seen, against one of the top Featherweights in UFC history, and the Notorious himself. There was an abundance of drama surrounding this event, from Conor throwing the dolly at a bus full of UFC athletes, to the many personal shots thrown back and forth at the press conferences, this event made for a must buy Pay-Per-View card.

2. Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz 2

Conor and Nate will forever have a competitive rivalry, in the first matchup, Conor made the move to welterweight almost immediately after knocking out Jose Aldo at Featherweight, (145 to 170) and losing via Rear Naked Choke in the second round. For obvious reasons, Conor had a bad taste in his mouth following the first loss, and decided to accept a rematch five months later, winning the second fight by Majority Decision.

3. Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier

4. Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 3

At this point, I’m wondering if the UFC should just keep having Conor and Dustin fight each other until they are in their 40s and can retire peacefully with matching titanium shinbones. 

Jokes aside, Conor and Dustin have one of the most entertaining and deep rivalries in UFC history, Conor having won the first fight in 2014, Dustin made some great improvements in the next 6 years, beating Conor McGregor by KO in the first rematch, and TKO (Doctor Stoppage) due to a lower leg injury for Conor in the third bout.

5. Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone

Last but not least, we have the legendary 40 second finish, with possibly one of the coolest comeback walkouts of all time. The vibe leading up to this comeback fight for Conor McGregor was breathtaking, and the performance was even more impressive. Possibly one of the cleanest and most pure shows of talent and technique in a long time, Conor finished off Donald Cerrone in less than a minute, without a scratch on his body, giving him the number 5 spot on the all-time PPV list.
