What are Conor McGregor’s net worth and career earnings?

Conor McGregor is an Irish professional Mixed Martial Artist who has a net worth of $200 million. In August 2017, he was paid over $10 million daily for the fight he engaged with Floyd Mayweather.

Conor also earned $50 million from his October 2018 fight against Khabib and from April 2021, he earned an estimated $200 million as allowance for the sale of his whiskey brand Proper No. Twelve.

His career as a mixed martial artist is estimated at about $235 million as of this writing.

Formative years

In Crumlin, Ireland, on July 14, 1988, Anthony McGregor was born. He excelled in sports like soccer as a child, but at age 12 he started boxing club training.

Conor began an apprenticeship in plumbing in 2006 when he was 17 years old. Tom Egan, a fighter, introduced him to the UFC through his work. Soon after, Egan and McGregor started working out together.

After receiving boxing instruction, McGregor continued his training at SBG Ireland with John Kavanagh and his staff.

Kavanagh was the first Irishman to earn a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt. Prior to participating in professional MMA, he also trained in Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Capoeira, and Kickboxing.


When he was 18 years old, UFC Conor made his amateur MMA debut. By first-round TKO, he prevailed in his professional debut. Conor was living on government assistance in Ireland and receiving $235 a week just a few weeks before making his MMA debut because he was so poor.

McGregor was given a multi-fight contract by the UFC, which was announced in February 2013. He followed welterweight Tom Egan in fighting for the organization at the time as the second Irish fighter. On April 6, 2013, McGregor faced Marcus Brimage in his UFC debut, and he prevailed, finishing the first round with a TKO barely over a minute in.

McGregor is a wide-stance attacker who has also effectively created a variety of different combat styles to succeed and move up into the top 10. Some claim that his quick left jab with a straight arm is his most potent technique. For a UFC fighter who was born abroad, McGregor had an incredible rise.

Conor McGregor’s largest UFC paychecks

Conor earned $5 million on July 11, 2015, when he defeated Chad Mendes at UFC 189. He earned an estimated $12 million on December 11th, 2015, by outlasting Jose Aldo in just 13 seconds.

Conor reportedly earned at least $10 million and possibly as much as $15 million when he competed against Nate Diaz at UFC 196 on March 5, 2016.

When he battled Nate Diaz one more at UFC 202, he reportedly received $25 million. In his fight against Eddie Alvarez in November 2016, he made over $7 million. In his battle against Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018, he earned an estimated $50 million.

Approximately $115 million has been earned by the UFC so far (including Khabib’s $50 million payoff).

Conor’s much-awaited return to the UFC saw him defeat Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone on January 18, 2020. A record for the UFC at the time, Conor received a guaranteed $5 million for the contest.

He has hinted in interviews that, if Pay Per View sales are strong, his earnings from the Cerrone fight might potentially reach $80 million. Cerrone was promised $2 million in exchange for his attendance.

Boxing Revenue for Floyd Mayweather

Conor fought against unbeaten champion Floyd Mayweather on August 26, 2017, making the transition from the MMA cage to the boxing ring. 4.3 million people purchased the PPV, making the fight one of the most successful sporting events ever.

With guarantees, product royalties, concessions, and bonuses, Conor’s earnings at that level were roughly $100 million. Conor had a net worth of $85 million after the Floyd fight if you consider he lost about 50% of his profits to taxes on $100 million in gross earnings.

In addition, Conor made almost $14 million between June 2017 and June 2018 from endorsement deals with businesses including Burger King, Beats by Dre, and Anheuser-Busch.

Conor may have received yet another enormous paycheck in a rematch had he defeated Mayweather (against all odds). It wouldn’t be unreasonable to think that he would have been allowed to demand at least 50% of the proceeds from a subsequent bout. Theoretically, that would have produced a $200–$300 million profit.

Conor revealed that he had signed an 8-fight contract with the UFC on September 20, 2018.

Although the terms of the agreement were not made public, it is most certainly valued at least $200 million on the low end.


Conor revealed in a puzzling tweet on March 25, 2019, that he would stop competing in mixed martial arts fights in order to devote all of his time to his new businesses, including the Proper 12 whiskey line.

He retires with almost $235 million in total career earnings if he is genuinely finished fighting.
