UFC: events with the highest live attendance as of May 2019 As of June 2019, out of all Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) events so far UFC 193 – Rousey vs. Holm on November 14th 2015 in Melbourne, Australia had the highest gate attendance with a total of 56,214 attendees, followed closely by UFC 129 – St. Pierre vs Shields on April 30th 2011 in Toronto Canada with a total attendance of 55,724.
Conor McGregor highest overall direct fight earnings

  When looking at the highest total earnings among fighters, directly resulting from UFC fights, Conor McGregor, who officially retired on March 26th 2019 from Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), is still at first place with approximately 12 million U.S. dollars. However it is safe to say that this only a small fraction compared to his entire earnings, including Pay-Per-View bonuses, endorsement deals and not to mention his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather, for which alone he made more than 75 million U.S. dollars.

474 UFC fights in 2018

  There are plenty of UFC fighters around the world, next to other MMA fighters of different categories. In 2018, a total of 474 UFC fights took place worldwide, a number which has fluctuated since 2014, before which it was considerably lower. The highest pay-per-view buy rate among UFC events was at UFC 229 – Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Conor McGregor with a total of 2.4 million buys.
