The Notorious one

UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor has been active on twitter Monday revealing a lot about what is on his mind.

“The Notorious” has been all the buzz after being pulled from UFC 200 by the UFC for refusing to take part in media obligations to promote the fight.

McGregor replied to fan on twitter that asked, “@TheNotoriousMMA you think it’s safe to say you’ve overtaken Brock as the single biggest draw in MMA history?”

McGregor laid out all of his records he holds in the UFC saying, “It is not safe to say. It is fact to say.
I hold PPV, Gate, TV, Fightpass and Embedded record.
Even Title fight KO.”

Another fan went on to call out McGregor on Brock Lesnar’s numbers from UFC 100 saying, “@TheNotoriousMMA UFC 100 holds the PPV record.”

McGregor’s reply for this one was very interesting as he affirmed, “Incorrect. I beat it by 400,000 buys.
Which alone was 100,000 more buys than UFC 197 made IN TOTAL. #KillShot”

While no official pay-per-view numbers are ever released, UFC President Dana White also claims that UFC 196 broke all records. However, White has gone on record to say that UFC 196 did 1.5 million pay-per-view buys, while UFC 100 is believed to have had 1.6 million pay-per-view buys.
