Detroit’s Own Eminem Featured On New Promo Video For McGregor vs Poirier 2
Eminem’s new song “Higher” is being used to promote McGregor vs Poirier 2 which goes down on January 23rd on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi.

UFC Will Once Again Raise PPV Price Starting With UFC 257
UFC 257 McGregor vs Poirier 2 will kick off a new price hike for MMA fans looking to purchase Pay Per View events in 2021. The organization plans to raise their PPV price by $5 from $64.99 to $69.99 to reflect the old fee before the ESPN deal. According to Variety MMA fans can buy a one year’s subscription of ESPN+ and the UFC 257 PPV for $84.98. Although that is a great deal, how many more price hikes can MMA fans expect? Sure, it’s only a $5 price hike, but I really hope this doesn’t become a yearly thing.
UFC 246 in January 2020 was the first instance where the organization raised prices from $59.99 to $64.99. If McGregor is going to be the reason for the constant price hike then I can honestly do without him being on cards. I know this might be a shock to some, but there’s other fighters on the UFC roster other than McGregor. I get it, he’s a superstar in the MMA world. The UFC actually pulled a brilliant move by increasing the price with Conor on the card. Moving forward though will the PPV numbers stay the same or go up with the price increase? I guess only time will tell…
