Ahead of the fight, UFC President Dana White has revealed that the event has already broken Madison Square Garden records, despite the fact that it has yet to take place.
Featherweight champion Conor McGregor, who has the chance to make UFC history at the event when he faces Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight championship in the main event, also echoed Whites statements, saying:
Weve broken the Muhammad Ali-Frazier attendance record of 21,000 Im hearing that. Weve broken the gate record of $14 million set by Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield. So theyre two amazing contests and historical fights and I broke them both.
Ill continue changing the game and putting it onto that next level like Ive been doing since day one. Thats my plans.
