It shouldn’t be surprising, but from Conor McGregor’s end, the build towards Saturday’s fight with Floyd Mayweather has been great.

Reports of the pay-per-view setting records have come out, meaning more money in the pocket of the reigning UFC lightweight champion.

“I saw it pointing to record breaking numbers,” he said during a conference call. “All across the board. From the gate to the sponsorships to the pay-per-views. Absolutely every angle. So I am very, very happy with how it has gone. I am very happy with how the promotion has gone. I believe I have handled it carefully and best of all involved I believe.

“I have been more active than all involved by a mile. So I am very happy I look forward to when the contest is all said and done and wrapped up.”
