British UFC fighter Paddy Pimblett suggested that his fight against former two-division champion Conor McGregor of Ireland would be the best-selling fight in the history of the promotion.
It would be the highest-grossing fight on PPV. That's something the UFC has never seen before. I think when Conor comes back, he will fight at welterweight. Honestly, it's going to be hard for him to fit in the lightweight limit right now. He looks big.

Pimblett will next step into the octagon against American Jared Gordon at UFC 282, scheduled for the night of December 11 in Las Vegas.
Pimblett last fought against Jordan Livitt this past July at UFC Fight Night 208. Paddy won that fight via second round choke. Paddy had 19 wins and three losses in mixed martial arts. McGregor has 22 wins and six losses.
