Daily Debate results: Which Conor McGregor matchup could top UFC 229 PPV buys?

It’s back to the drawing board for Conor McGregor.

Last Saturday, McGregor returned to the octagon for the first time in nearly two years and failed to reclaim his UFC lightweight title when he tapped out to champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in the fourth round of their UFC 229 headliner. McGregor, a former two-division champion, talked big heading into the contest but was mostly dominated by Nurmagomedov before submitted to a rear-naked choke/neck crank.

While he lost inside the cage, McGregor is set to be a big winner outside of it now that UFC President Dana White has said UFC 229 sold more than 2 million pay-per-views, which would shatter the previous record for a UFC event.
