Will Conor McGregor dominate the PPV numbers in 2021?

The Irish superstar marked his return to the octagon after a long lay-off earlier this year against Donald Cerrone. It took him all of 40-seconds to knockout ‘Cowboy’ and in the process set a record for knockout victories across three weight divisions. 

The event was also the most successful PPV of the year with 1.35 million PPV buys. UFC 251 headlined by Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal was a close second at 1.3 million PPV buys.

‘The Notorious’ returns to the UFC octagon a year after his last fight. He takes on a former rival in Dustin Poirier, albeit at a different weight class. There is a lot of hype surrounding the fight, and the bout will have massive implications on the title picture. 

MMA fans could not have hoped for a better start to the year than with Conor Vs Dustin 2. Any card with ‘The Notorious’ on it does well in terms of PPV buys. However, with Jon Jones’ move to heavyweight and Adesanya’s move to light heavyweight, there are other super fights to look out for in 2021. It will be interesting to see if Conor can sell the most PPVs two years in a row.
