"He's got the biggest pay-per-view in pay-per-view history. How many of the top 10 does he have? I don't even know. He's one of the biggest stars out there.
"A lot of the times coming in his career he's been doubted for his talent and he proves everybody wrong every time."

"Two billion dollars? Sounds like a good number, I'll take that," White joked. "I don't know what he's worth to the company but it's big.
"You couldn't go anywhere without seeing this fight and knowing that this fight was on. All the people came out and watched the fight.
"This is one of those fights that people who normally don't buy [do] buy, right? So, the number is always massive.
"Then Conor comes out and does what he did tonight. You can't put a number on that. It's massive and it's global. The whole world was watching tonight."
After the big win against Cerrone, Mcgregor made clear his intentions of fighting the UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in a mission to get revenge for the fourth round submission loss his got on his record back in UFC 229 and that's part of what the UFC president has on his agenda.
