According to the latest Fight Pass statistics, Conor McGregor is the most searched fighter on FightPass and has two spots (6th and 9th) in the top 10 most watched fights on Fight Pass

Here is an extract from Kevin Iole’s article on Yahoo Sports

“Here is a look at the full Top 10, through Oct. 6, per UFC research:

Top 10 most watched fights on FightPass:

Jon Jones-Alexander Gustafsson, Sept. 21, 2013, Toronto, UFC 165

The top 10, which White said he was not aware of until a reporter read him the list, did not surprise the UFC president. Only three of McGregor’s fights were on FightPass at the time of the counting since UFC 178 was not up because of a pay-per-view hold. Two of those three made the list.

“I’ve been telling everyone this, but maybe this will give me evidence to back up what I’ve been saying, and that is that Conor McGregor is a huge star,” White said. “People are interested in what he’s doing, they want to see him fight and they’re going to FightPass to check him out.”
