“So Much Power It’s Danger” – Conor McGregor Not Happy With the Revenue Generated by Las Vegas

UFC has hosted several highest-grossing PPV events in Las Vegas, from which the UFC PPV king, Conor McGregor, headlined most of them. As a result, the ‘Notorious’ one shares a special bond with the city.

Las Vegas bills itself as the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’. Besides being one of the most visited tourist places, Vegas is well-known for gambling activities. During the Covid-19 lockdown period, Vegas’ gambling revenue dropped drastically. However, in the post-lockdown, it appears the city is back in business. 

In July 2021, Vegas generated a record-breaking $794 Million in gambling revenue, as per Forbes. This mind-boggling news had several well-known personalities share their reaction. One such person includes the former UFC two-division champion, Conor McGregor.

The ‘Notorious’ one shared his reaction on his official Twitter handle. In his Tweet, he said – “So much Power it’s danger.”

Ironically, in his last outing in Vegas, McGregor had his trilogy fight against his rival, Dustin Poirier, at UFC 264. The trilogy fight had an anti-climactic outcome, as the ‘Notorious’ one suffered a leg injury. As a result, Poirier was declared the winner via TKO (Doctor’s stoppage).

McGregor had already made it clear that this rivalry is not over yet. As a result, fans may witness McGregor vs. Poirier 4 in the near future. As it all started in Vegas, it seems fair for the pair to put their rivalry to rest in Vegas.
