The Irishman returned to the famed Octagon following a hiatus from the sport in January 2021.
He headlined a huge card against Poirier on 'Fight Island' in Abu Dhabi, with the event garnering a massive 1.5 million PPV buys.
The 'Notorious' took to Twitter to upload an official document labelled 'PPV BUY SUMMARY FOR CONOR MCGREGOR'.
Per the image, UFC 257 collected 1,504,737 buys - 4,449 more than the projected buys of 1,500,238.
Of course, McGregor lost the rematch as he suffered a second round stoppage defeat.
But the receipt proves he is easily the biggest draw in the company.
McGregor also replied to a Twitter user saying he grossed the UFC over $100 million in one night.
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!"
