Conor McGregor played the role of victories and failures until his time in the octagon. However, one of the biggest events of the year for the Irishman was that his bank balance fell into the stratosphere.
Conor McGregor is behind a number of credible business decisions, now walking in top roles and boasting of his wealth $ 200 million. Dubliner has long been the UFC’s cash cow, but his presence will only boost attendance and make PPV a huge purchase.

The advantages of the Irish cage invasions
It’s no secret that Conor McGregor spent his biggest payday in a single boxing fight against Floyd Mayweather. While he may have lost the fight due to a ten-round technical knockout, the Irishman went $ 100 million richer.
He returned to the UFC card for the first time since losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018. Even if Donald Cerrone isn’t an A-lister, fans have been expecting UFC 246 fights to be a single fight for centuries, and it has been. While Conor McGregor claims to get the much-discussed $ 80 million, the South’s basic salary was $ 3 million.
In his next fight against Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, he saw the lightweight category go with $ 3 million as his base salary. The fight instantly paved the way for the final edition of the trilogy epic. The result, which was expected to be one of the biggest fights in UFC history in the lightweight division, much disappointed fans.
Although Conor McGregor struggled with loss and procrastination, he pulled away from a UFC 264 fight with a heavier pocket and put Dustin Poirier on a wooden spoon. Conor McGregor earned $ 5 million in the UFC 264 despite suffering two technical knockouts from Dustin Poirier.
It should be noted that none of these amounts include additional income, such as PPV shares, which make up the largest portion of McGregor’s revenue from the UFC.

Conor McGregor will own a stake in Proper Twelve
Unexpectedly for several fans, Conor McGregor relinquished his position as the majority owner of his whiskey brand. Proximo Spirit bought a majority stake after firing up to $ 600 million. Proceeds from the deal were shared by co-founders Conor McGregor, Audie Attar of Paradigm Sports and Ken Austin.
Not all parties to the deal wanted to lose the former UFC champion as his biggest supporter. Once launched, Notorious has sold the product relentlessly and is still expected to continue to do so.
While McGregor has been given a number of bad hands over his recent appearances in the UFC, his time outside the octagon has been very rewarding. Meanwhile, Irishman Dustin Poirier is dedicated to restoring his health to overcome disagreements and is counting down the days of his next big paycheck.
