UFC megastar Conor McGregor is now set to make his massive octagon return. With that in mind, it would appear that the former two-division champion now stands to make massive millions from the big fight.
Conor McGregor recently landed a new, record breaking six-fight contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Beyond that, “Notorious” recently released his own brand of Irish whiskey known as “Proper 12.” UFC President Dana White has gone on to claim that the product is selling incredibly well and could someday make Conor McGregor a billionaire. It still doesn’t end there.
Conor McGregor is now set to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC lightweight championship within the main event of UFC 229 on Oct. 6. The event’s live pay-per-view is trending to sell upwards of a record shattering 3 million broadcasts, according to Dana White.
Consequently, White claims that Conor McGregor could make upwards of $100 million from the upcoming fight. All in all, it’s looking to be a good year for the Ireland native.
Now MMA’s Jed I. Goodman has come forward to report that Conor McGregor is expected to make a total $5 million from Reebok’s uniform deal with the UFC at UFC 229. That same uniform deal has earned all UFC competitors within 2018 an estimated $5 million in compensation.
