The previous company record was 1.5 million buys set for UFC 202, on August 20, 2016, which was the second McGregor vs. Nate Diaz fight.
Because it’s a worldwide number, and boxing pay-per-view numbers released are only for North America, it’s impossible to make a direct comparison regarding where this ranks of all-time. It is definitely behind Mayweather vs. McGregor (August 26, 2017), Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao (May 2, 2015) and Mayweather vs. Oscar de la Hoya (May 5, 2007), and probably behind Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez (September 14, 2013). It is possible that, adding in the U.K. market, which didn’t air UFC 229 as a pay-per-view, that some of the big Mike Tyson fights may have also beaten this number worldwide, but would not have in the North American market.
