What will a loss against Dustin Poirier mean for Conor McGregor’s UFC career?
McGregor is without a doubt the biggest star in the UFC and perhaps the only one capable of selling over a million PPV buys which he has done multiple times. However, part of that has to do with the fact that he puts on stunning displays while securing impressive wins. If McGregor is not able to win fights, he might not be able to sell the number of PPVs he normally does.
