Conor McGregor is proving to be money yet again.
According to Disney CEO, Bob Iger, “Notorious’s” comeback at UFC 246 helped ESPN+ add an extra one million subscribers.
ESPN is owned by Disney.
And Iger says the current number for ESPN+ is actually 7.6 million (the 6.6 million was at the end of the quarter), as another bump has come in largely thanks to the McGregor fight.
