A potential blockbuster clash between Jorge Masvidal and Conor McGregor could shatter UFC's pay-per-view record following the huge success of UFC 251.

Kamaru Usman vs. Masvidal generated a whopping 1.3 million buys, the biggest UFC PPV fight since Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Conor McGregor back in 2018.

'Gamebred' is now a legit draw and one of the biggest names in the sport as he flexed his star power on just six days' notice at UFC 251.

What's next for Masvidal? Well, Dana White teased a bout against McGregor - saying it would be the biggest fight in UFC history, and he's not wrong based on UFC 251 pulling in 1.3 million buys.

Sure, there were two other titles fights on the 'Fight Island' card but fans tuned in to watch one man: Masvidal.

The Miami fighter has now entered the all-time UFC PPV list and could break the current record if he fights McGregor.

Masvidal vs. McGregor would be an astronomical event.

McGregor's star power hasn't waned despite his lack of activity with 'The Notorious' raking in 1 million PPV buys for his triumphant comeback against Donald Cerrone in January.

Masvidal, on the other hand, has seen his popularity and marketability soar following a scintillating 2019 which saw him beat Darren Till, Ben Askren and Nate Diaz.

Combine Masvidal's star power with the attraction that surrounds a McGregor fight and you're looking at a monstrous PPV show. The biggest fight in UFC history.

Could Masvidal vs. McGregor top UFC 229 PPV buys? Yes. Could it break the 3 million mark? Also, yes.

UFC pay-per-view records:

UFC 229: Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Conor McGregor - 2.4 million buys

UFC 202: Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor II - 1.6 million buys

UFC 196: Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz - 1.5 million buys

UFC 100: Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir II - 1.3 million buys
