More than talk, Conor McGregor puts himself at top of UFC’s new age

“Right now, I’m running the game,” McGregor said. “I own every record in the book and, at the end of the day, I’m still only 26 years of age.”
The UFC debuted an improved broadcast production, Reebok fighter uniforms and an expanded drug-testing regimen.

Most important, the promotion crowned the man who’s suddenly become its biggest star. McGregor’s pull enabled the UFC to set a domestic record with a $7.2 million gate and a Las Vegas high mark with an attendance of 16,019. UFC President Dana White suggested it could also fall as the company’s highest-ever-selling pay-per-view, which would be astounding considering an opponent switch from featherweight champion Jose Aldo to Mendes occurred less than two weeks ago.
