Showtime Confirms Buyrate For Floyd Mayweather Vs. Conor McGregor


Earlier in the week, Dana White said that the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight did 6.5 million buys. But, it appears that the UFC president’s 6.5 million number was a bit of an exaggeration, to say the least.

On Friday, Showtime confirmed that the Mayweather vs. McGregor buyrate was somewhere in the 4.6 million range.

“It’s too early to declare a hard number,” said Stephen Espinoza, the executive vice president of Showtime. “[It’s] tracking in the mid-to-high 4 million pay-per view buys.

“If we don’t reach the record, we’re going to be very, very close,” he added. “We consider it a massive success.”
