Conor McGregor Lost Three UFC Records At UFC 200

Conor McGregor Lost Three UFC Records At UFC 200
By Conor O'Leary Updated

Records fell last night in Las Vegas. UFC 200 broke two Conor McGregor records at once in terms of the biggest guaranteed payday ever, and the biggest gate of 2016.

First, Brock Lesnar's fee for appearing on the main card will make your eyes water. The Dubliner's record for the most guaranteed money of $1 million after his fight with Nate Diaz was blown out of the water with Lesnar's £2.5 million payday. That doesn't even count Lesnar's bonus for beating Mark Hunt, or the PPV bonus.

In comparison, Lesnar's opponent Mark Hunt made $700,000; Miesha Tate earned $500,000; Jose Aldo $400,000; Daniel Cormier ($500,000), and Anderson Silva got $600,000.

All of those figures should be boosted by the news that the attendance at the milestone event was the highest in Las Vegas ever. The 18,202 at the gate brought in a huge $7.1 million. It's not the most attended event in UFC history though - that was UFC 193 in Melbourne with a huge 56, 214.

The $10.7 million gate also leapfrogs McGregor in the biggest in Nevada history - with the Dubliner commanding the next three positions.
