Featherweight champion Conor McGregor, who has the chance to make UFC history at the event when he faces Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight championship in the main event, also echoed White’s statements, saying:

“We’ve broken the Muhammad Ali-Frazier attendance record of 21,000 – I’m hearing that. We’ve broken the gate record of $14 million set by Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield. So they’re two amazing contests and historical fights and I broke them both.”

“I’ll continue changing the game and putting it onto that next level like I’ve been doing since day one. That’s my plans.”
