UFC 264 featuring Dustin Poirier vs. Conor McGregor 3 scores reported 1.8 million buys

The numbers are in and it confirms a successful night all around for the UFC and ESPN.

According to Dana White at the UFC 264 post-fight press conference and a tweet earlier today from the Sports Business Journal, UFC 264 had approximately 1.8 million buys, 500,000 of which were international orders, which leaves a 1.3 million domestic take.

That puts it behind UFC 229, which featured Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor in November 2018 and just ahead of the Poirier vs. McGregor 2 at UFC 257 in January, which had 1.6 million buys.

Poirier (28-6-0, 1NC) defeated McGregor at UFC 264 via doctor’s stoppage after a McGregor broken ankle forced his retirement after the first round.

In addition, UFC 264 had a crowd of 20,062 and $15,759,800 USD at the gate.

The company’s next pay-per-view event UFC 265, is scheduled for Aug. 7 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. Derrick Lewis battles Ciryl Gane in the main event for the interim heavyweight title.
