UFC President Dana White said Saturday's fight in Las Vegas between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor drew 6.5 million pay-per-view buys in a conversation posted on Instagram by Mike Dyce of Sports Illustrated (warning: contains NSFW language):

White offered the number during a conversation with Urijah Faber and Snoop Dogg. Dave Meltzer of MMA Fighting noted White was likely referring to the worldwide figure—not the number of buys in North America.
