Conor McGregor may not have any UFC fights lined up but that doesn’t mean that he can’t showcase his PPV muscle.
While talks about a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather circulate, McGregor has decided to give an hour-long interview to MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani.
The hour-long special was originally a live event for his fans but instead Conor found a way to make a buck off of it.
While all 5,000 tickets for the event have reportedly been sold already, there is a way for the biggest McGregor fans among us to catch this interview. Managing Director at An Experience With, Stephen Oleksewycz, said that the event will be live streamed globally starting at 9 pm GMT (4 pm EST).
“An Evening With Conor McGregor” will be broadcast live on www.notoriouslive.tv. for $4.91. – via Champions MMA
With an online PPV price south of $5, it’ll be interesting to see how many buys the event is able to generate. If successful, McGregor may change another aspect of the combat sports realm by holding and financially capitalizing on his own media obligations.
Can’t knock the guy for circumventing the UFC at every turn.
And for those not lucky enough to attend the event, don’t worry, there’s an after party.
