Seizing the McGregor Moment
- Posted on: Oct 12, 2018
There is no one in combat sports - or any sport, really - quite like Conor McGregor. “Notorious” is more than just his nickname. When he fights, the world watches.
Four of the five most-viewed UFC events of all time have included McGregor. And that was before he fought Floyd Mayweather in the biggest global boxing match ever seen on Pay-Per-View.
His celebrity has never been greater. And after two years away from the UFC, fans are desperate to see him compete in the sport in which he became a two-division champion and global icon.
There’s little doubt McGregor’s return to the Octagon at UFC 229 will be the most-watched MMA event ever. His opponent is the unbeaten Khabib Nurmagomedev, not only the greatest challenger he has ever faced, but his most personal rival.
The world will be watching. Let us help bring them to you.
There is no bar night like a McGregor night. For our network of more than 5,000 venue partners, a McGregor fight is one of their most profitable nights of the year. The demand is there - many places have to turn away customers at the door. For McGregor events, the UFC Bar Finder records record searches - more than 100,000 fans looking for a place to watch.
But you don’t have to be a sports bar or a nightclub to take advantage. We’ve helped all kinds of commercial locations build special events around McGregor fights. Places like a casino high-limit room looking to add a perk for its VIPs. A university searching for a safe student event that actually draws a crowd. A restaurant owner wanting to capture a post-dinner crowd.
The investment may be more affordable than you think. There is no up-charge for McGregor - the price is set by fire code occupancy, and is the same for all UFC events!
