Conor McGregor's Net Worth

Conor McGregor is one of the most famous people in the world when it comes to the UFC and mixed martial arts.

McGregor has been both the UFC Lightweight Champion and the UFC Featherweight Champion. He was the first fighter in UFC history to hold two belts from different weight classes at the same time.  Let’s read about Conor McGregor’s Net Worth.

Conor McGregor’s Net Worth

Irish professional fighter Conor McGregor has a net worth of $200 million.

Conor McGregor’s net worth includes the roughly $100 million he made from his fight with Floyd Mayweather in August 2017, the $50 million he made from his fight with Khabib in October 2018, and the expected $200 million he will make before taxes from the sale of his whiskey brand Proper No. Twelve in April 2021. There will be more about each of these things in the rest of this piece.

Conor McGregor’s Biggest UFC Paychecks Came From

At UFC 189 on July 11, 2015, Conor beat Chad Mendes and won $5 million. On December 11, 2015, Conor beat Jose Aldo in 13 seconds and was said to have made $12 million.

People say that when Conor faced Nate Diaz at UFC 196 on March 5, 2016, he made at least $10 million and maybe as much as $15 million. When he fought Nate Diaz again at UFC 202, he allegedly made $25 million. In November 2016, when he fought Eddie Alvarez, he made about $7 million. In October 2018, he fought Khabib Nurmagomedov and made about $50 million.

On January 18, 2020, Conor’s long-awaited return to the UFC came true when he beat Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. Conor was promised $5 million for the fight, which was a UFC record at the time. In talks, he has said that if Pay Per View sales go well, he could make more than $80 million from the Cerrone fight. If Cerrone showed up, he was promised $2 million.

Conor lost to Dustin Poirier on January 23, 2021. Conor was promised $5 million once more. The loss cost Conor a huge payday in the future because it stopped another match between him and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

So far, the UFC has made about $115 million, which includes Khabib’s $50 million bonus.

Floyd Mayweather’s Money from Fights

Conor fought Floyd Mayweather on August 26, 2017, in a boxing ring instead of an MMA cage. Mayweather had never lost a fight before. The fight was one of the most profitable PPV events ever, with 4.3 million people buying it.

For the fight, Conor was promised $30 million. With PPV bonuses, merchandise sales, and other gains, Conor made more than $100 million from the fight. Conor was also able to make around $14 million in 2017 from deals with companies like Burger King, Beats by Dre, Anheuser-Busch, and more, thanks in large part to the buzz surrounding this fight.

If you think that Conor lost about 50% of his earnings to taxes, then his net worth after the Floyd Mayweather fight was $85 million.

If, against all chances, Conor had beaten Mayweather, it would have led to a rematch where Conor could have won another huge sum of money. It wouldn’t be crazy to think that he could have asked for at least half of the money made from a future fight. Theoretically, that would have brought in $200 million to $300 million.

Conor revealed on September 20, 2018, that he had signed an 8-fight contract with the UFC. The deal’s details haven’t been made public, but it’s likely to be worth at least $200 million at the very least.

Sale of Whiskey Company for $600 Million

In September 2018, McGregor released the Irish whiskey brand Proper No. Twelve in both Ireland and the United States. Before they started their business, the partners added Proximo Spirits as a 20% ownership partner. Jose Cuervo tequila is what Proximo is best known for.

Proximo paid $250 million in mid-2020 to increase its share of stock to 49%.

In April 2021, McGregor and his business partners sold Proximo Spirits 51% of Proper No. Twelve that they still owned together. The deal could be worth as much as $600 million in the end, which includes the $250 million that the three owners made from the deal with Proximo that we talked about earlier.

All in all, if every long-term goal is reached, Conor will have made a total of $200 million from Proper No. Twelve.
