Usman vs. Masvidal has shot up to No.6 on the all-time PPV list, tied with UFC 205 - headlined by Eddie Alvarez vs. McGregor.

Further reports suggest the Yas Island show secured $77,988,000 million (£62.3 million) in television revenue.

'Gamebred' took to social media after UFC 251 PPV buys surfaced online.

On Twitter, he wrote: "The overwhelming amount of support I have received before, during, and after this journey has been humbling. Still got a lot of goals to meet. All of you that tuned in to see me win, thank you. Those that tuned in to see me lose, thank you."

He added: "I want to thank God for allowing me to be able to provide for my family during a time of crisis and the best is yet to come #theresurrection."

UFC 251 proved that Masvidal is now one of the biggest draws in the sport, but he has a long way to go to beat UFC 229 PPV numbers.

Nurmagomedov vs. McGregor brought in a record breaking 2.4 million PPV buys back in October 2018.
