Despite tickets going for a hefty price for Conor McGregor’s return at UFC 246, the event has already sold out.
In fact, it sold out in just 10 minutes when they went on sale. Prices started at $300 and went up to $1,500.
Despite the expensiveness of the tickets, Conor proved that he is still big business by pulling in a $10 million gate for T-Mobile Arena.

Conor will face Donald Cerrone in the headlining bout at welterweight in what will be McGregor’s first fight in over a year.
With the sell out, two of the top three gates in Vegas now belong to “Notorious.”
From Yahoo, Dana White says #UFC246 sold out on first day on sale and gate is $10M.
Top 3 #UFC Vegas gates:
1. UFC 229: $17,188,894.67
2. UFC 200: $10,746,248.00
3. UFC 194: $10,006,249.00

Now it remains to be seen if he can still draw in big pay-per-view (PPV) numbers after the cost to order the event had gone up $5.
Judging by the way ticket sales went, it’s a safe bet that Conor and “Cowboy” will do enough to score another big PPV hit for UFC.
With a win, Conor is expected to earn a rematch against lightweight king Khabib Nurmagomedov.
That’s assuming “The Eagle” gets through Tony Ferguson in their title fight at UFC 249 later next year.
