Now Conor has revealed the financial stats of that event. According to the receipt, the pay-per-view event collected 1,504,737 buys – 4,449 more than the projected buys of 1,5000,238. UFC 257 reportedly sold around 1.6 million pay-per-view buys and this number is just under that number for worldwide sales. The total pay-per-view sales also decide how much McGregor gets paid by the UFC, which is typically configured based upon a particular dollar amount per PPV buy over a certain threshold. Those figures are not made public by the UFC.
Conor Mcgregor is now recovering from his surgery after he suffered a gruesome injury in his last fight. After his loss at UFC 257, the series between Mcgregor and Poirier was levelled at 1-1 and the duo decided to settle the rivalry. The pair fought at UFC 264. The ending of this fight was very surprising as Conor Mcgregor broke his foot by the end of the fight and Poirier was declared the winner by TKO [Doctor stoppage]. Conor then went on to get surgery on his broken foot and got himself a titanium shinbone installed.
In his recent talks with Adam’s Apple, Conor revealed his health status and how his recovery is going.
“I feel like I could kick right now,” McGregor told Adam’s Apple. “I honestly feel like I could kick right now, but I’m just got to listen to the doctors and listen to the people that guided me. That’s what I’ve done so far. I’ve committed myself to the work. I’m back on the feet. It feels so good to be back on the feet.”
“When I left my son (for training camp), I was jumping 360 flips, and then, the next time he sees me, I’m in this seat and I can’t walk. That was kind of playing on me a little bit,” McGregor said. “Then as the weeks have gone by and I’m getting better and stronger, my son and my children are seeing. My son is the older one. He can understand a bit more. My other two are still a bit too young. But (my son) can see the work I put in. He can see the rewards and I know that’s going to rub off well on him. He’s going to be able to see his father. He put the work in. You rise back to your feet.”
