Former two-weight world champion Conor McGregor has just two fights remaining on his UFC contract, and he plans to go out with a bang.

‘The Notorious’ let the news slip after he disputed a list of the top-nine highest-selling UFC PPVs of all time.

McGregor claims he holds 8 (not 7) of the UFC’s top ten pay-per-view buys and that he will hold all ten after his contract is complete.

“This list is incorrect,” McGregor replied. “McGregor Aldo done more than ufc 100, Brock v mir. And McGregor cowboy done more than McGregor Aldo. I currently hold 8 of the UFC’s top 10 ppv’s. With two fights left on my contract, I will look to finish with the full top 10 in ppv’s. Motivating!”

He followed up by claiming that UFC 100, which was headlined by Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir, did 1.1 million PPV buys and not the initially reported 1.6 million.

McGregor is undoubtedly the most successful prizefighter in UFC history but he is just 1-3 in his last four fights and hasn’t beaten a top-five-ranked fighter since 2016 when he TKO’d Eddie Alvarez to capture the lightweight title.

He is expected to return to the octagon next year after he recovers from his leg injury.
