Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is going to sell one million pay-per-view (PPV) buys for its upcoming "Aldo vs. McGregor" mixed martial arts (MMA) event on July 11, 2015, inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Well, that's according to this guy.

UFC 189 features a championship doubleheader topped by the must-see featherweight showdown pitting reigning 145-pound champion Jose Aldo against division No. 1 contender Conor McGregor. In the night's co-main event, Robbie Lawler puts his welterweight strap on the line in a 170-pound rematch opposite Rory MacDonald.

Hell yeah.
