While the pay-per-view numbers are still to come, the fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather fell well short of breaking the gate revenue record set by Manny Pacquiao and Mayweather in 2015, MMAFighting.com's Marc Raimondi confirmed Tuesday with the Nevada Athletic Commission.

The Aug. 26 boxing match made $55,414,865 in ticket sales at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas compared to Pacquiao-Mayweather's total of $72,198,500.

T-Mobile Arena was configured to seat 17,698 spectators, according to the NAC, but "The Money Fight" only sold 13,094 tickets with 137 complimentary tickets given out.

Showtime announced last week that the superfight is "tracking in the mid-to-high 4 million pay-per-view buys," which puts it on course to challenge the Pacquiao-Mayweather record of 4.6 million pay-per-views.
