McGregor took to social media to share a UFC receipt, confirming the buy-rate for UFC 257 in January 2021.
Per the image, McGregor vs. Poirier 2 collected 1,504,737 buys - 4,449 more than the projected buys of 1,500,238.
The Irishman then boasted about his star power, taking credit for the monstrous sale of the promotion in 2016.
On Twitter, he wrote: "A multitude of times, leading to a $4.2bn dollar acquisition of the company in 2016.
"Then I went a multitude more, perching the company up to an almost $11bn valuation, where it sits now in today's market. Incredible!"

Despite McGregor sharing the receipt online, UFC president White doesn't mind that the 'Notorious' posted the UFC 257 PPV figures.
"Most of the PPVs that come out are close or the ballpark of what they are, so no big secrets out there," he said.

McGregor, of course, is on the mend following his leg-break at UFC 264.
But White reckons the 33-year-old could fight again before the end of the year.
Speaking last month, he told the Australian Daily Telegraph: "Conor seems to be healing up pretty well.
"The question is: When can he start kicking again?
"If he could take kicks, then he'd be looking at a fight before the end of the year again, so it all depends on how fast that leg heals."
A trilogy bout against Poirier, though, will have to wait with 'The Diamond' in line to face UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira.
