It looks like any fight between Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor will make the UFC a truck-load of cash.
UFC 202, which took place last weekend in Las Vegas is the third highest selling PPV in the UFC’s history behind UFC 196 and UFC 100 per Brett Okamoto.
Per UFC, UFC 202 was third biggest PPV in company history, behind UFC 196 and 100. In other words, McGregor + Diaz = Ca$h Money.

UFC 196, which is the highest selling UFC PPV of all time and was also headlined by Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz. UFC 100 was held on July 11, 2009, in Las Vegas, Nevada and was headlined by a heavyweight rematch between Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir.
In terms of numbers at the gate, UFC 202 is currently ranked fifth of all time.
UFC 202 had the 5th largest gate revenue in UFC history with $7,692,010 in sales
