Conor McGregor Reacts To New Spot On Forbes Highest Paid Athletes List

UFC superstar Conor McGregor was ruled as the No. 4 highest paid leatherette of 2017, according to Forbes. Now “Notorious” has come forward with a few words on the matter.

The year of 2017 was a lucrative one for the Ireland native. McGregor made his boxing debut against pugilist legend Floyd Mayweather Jr., ultimately suffering a TKO loss to the undefeated boxer.
