Conor McGregor brags about UFC 264 ticket sales: ‘Sold out in seconds!’ – MMA Root

The trilogy fight between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier is already a success and the two lightweights haven’t even entered the cage.

Early Friday, the tickets for UFC 264: ‘Poirier vs. McGregor 3 ‘went on sale to the public. The event will take place on July 10 live on ESPN + PPV from inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and offers fight fans their first opportunity to watch the UFC live on “Sin City ”Since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

Unsurprisingly, UFC 264 tickets sold out in literally seconds. In total, 20,800 tickets were obtained in advance for one of the largest trilogy fights in UFC history. It seems the incredibly high ticket prices weren’t too high after all.

UFC President Dana White took to social media to brag about the initial success of the event:

“BOOOOOOM !!!!!!!! See you in Las Vegas. “

McGregor, who lost his rematch to Poirier at UFC 257 last January, also reacted on social media to the sale of UFC 264 tickets. “Notorious” compared the quick sale to a four-second knockout he had of Paddy Doherty in 2011. The former UFC champion may be looking for straws, but the early success of UFC 264 speaks for itself.

“Wow! I just beat the T-Mobile arena sell this time! 20,800 packed fans! Sold out in seconds! On the 10th anniversary of my KO of a faster hit in professional Mixed Martial Arts! Still one of the fastest in the history of professional mixed martial arts. 3.5 seconds “.

There’s no question that McGregor is still the UFC’s biggest star, but “Notorious” needs to remind fans that he’s still one of the best fighters in the sport today. McGregor’s loss to Poirier at UFC 257 was the first knockout loss of his career, so there is much room for improvement in the trilogy.
