  • Boxing, UFC competing for pay-per-view Fight

    The UFC president was not afraid to make his exact prediction for UFC 229 October, an event that presents the most anticipated fight of the year.
    And it is not often that we see Dana White doing this. The promotion he runs is really experiencing a poor year in terms of its pay-per-view numbers with its pair of best-selling events to date that yield an estimated figure of 380,000 purchases in the region.
    It seems that there is something of a drought in the power of the UFC in recent times, or at least it did until the brightest star of the sport rushed to reinject the game with a much-needed boost of cross-attraction.

    So with the return of Conor McGregor to Watch UFC 229 Fight Live in October, the question now is how much interest it can generate in a year in which it does not seem that people are so willing to put their hard earned money on the table.
    However, Dana does not seem to be too concerned about that, and she tells Yahoo Sports that she is "sure she will make 2 million Pay-Per-View.
    Whether Khabib / McGregor can summon a higher level of interest remains to be seen.
