Conor McGregor is an Irish MMA superstar. He’s most famous for his loudmouth attitude and predicting the outcomes of his fights accurately. He’s currently the UFC Featherweight champion which he became in december of 2015 when he knocked out José Aldo in 13 seconds.
Conor McGregor Net Worth: $34 Million
His net worth is far more than any other UFC fighter and the reason for that is because he is the most popular MMA fighter of all times. His stardom has surpassed Ronda Rousey and Muhammad Ali combined, which sets him up for a great payday. Combine this with a great contract that he has negotiated with UFC chairman Dana White and the owners of the company: WME-IMG.
Not only does “The notorious” get a great base salary, he also gets a share of the PPV (Pay Per View) sales as well. His fight at UFC 202 against Nate Diaz netted him a nice $15 Million, with the biggest chunk coming from his PPV points. As long as McGregor stays popular he will constantly clear at least $10 million per fight, no matter what.
Apart from his big earnings in the octagon, his other business ventures are doing great as well. His coach wrote a book called “Win or Learn” that became a bestseller within a week of it’s release. It’s unknown if Conor gets a percentage of the revenue of this book as of this moment, but it does make sense considering he’s the topic of the book. He’s also revealed that he will appear in the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare game which will also net him a nice bonus.
McGregor grew up dirt poor in Crumlin, which is a neighbourhood near Dublin. He started training Mixed Martial Arts at the age of 17 and became a professional at the age of 19. He made his UFC debut in 2013 against Marcus Brimage, and since then he’s been constantly building his brand and his stash of cash. Before the UFC, the Irishman was collecting a welfare check of $188 a week. We can safely say that his come up is a true “rags to riches” story which has inspired thousands of people all over the world.
His dedication and hard work have paid off for him and show anyone that with enough work you can become anyone you want. Not only does McGregor work hard at his image, he also does in the gym. Check out this video of his crazy AB workout routine, Insane!
