Conor McGregor net worth:
$85 Million

Conor McGregor net worth and career earnings: Conor McGregor is an Irish professional fighter who has a net worth of $85 million. That net worth includes an estimated $100 million payday from the August 2017 fight against Floyd Mayweather. Conor McGregor is best known for competing in the featherweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. He is also the former Cage Warriors Featherweight and Lightweight champion. McGregor was born in Dublin, Ireland and worked as a plumber before 2008 when he began his career as a Mixed Martial Artist. Just a few weeks before his MMA debut, Conor was so broke that he was on welfare in Ireland and collecting $235 per week in government assistance checks. McGregor was originally trained in boxing and went on to train under John Kavanagh, the first Irish person to achieve a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and his team at SBG Ireland. He has also trained in Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Capoeira, and Kickboxing prior to competing in professional MMA. In February 2013, the UFC announced that they had signed McGregor to a multi-fight contract. He is the second fighter from the Republic of Ireland to fight for the company, following welterweight Tom Egan. McGregor made his UFC debut against Marcus Brimage on April 6, 2013 and was successful in his first bout, winning via TKO just over a minute into the first round. The win also earned McGregor his first Knockout of the Night award. McGregor is a wide-stance striker who has also successfully developed a wide range of other combat forms to succeed and rise into the top 10. Some say his most effective move is his fast straight arm left jab. McGregor has had an amazing rise for a foreign born UFC fighter. He and his long term girlfriend, Dee Devlin, are widely recognized in Ireland, there are even large murals of him painted on O'Connell Street.

On December 11th, 2015, Conor earned a reported $12 million defeating Jose Aldo in 13 seconds. On March 5, 2016, Conor reportedly earned a minimum of $10 million, and perhaps as much as $15 million when he fought Nate Diaz at UFC 196. He reportedly earned $25 million when he fought Nate Diaz again at UFC 202.

Floyd Mayweather Fight and Earnings:

On August 26, 2017, Conor switched from the MMA cage to a boxing ring when he faced off against Floyd Mayweather. The fight is projected to be one of the most lucrative PPV events of all time. If the fight generates the amount of PPV buys that are predicted, Conor stands to make a minimum of $75 million, perhaps $100 million or even $150 million. If you assume Conor will lose around 50% of his earnings to taxes, if he makes $75 million, his net worth after the fight will be $72.5 million. If he makes $100 million, his net worth after the fight will be $85 million. If he makes $150 million, his net worth after the fight will be $110 million.

Perhaps more importantly, if Conor (against all odds) beats Mayweather, it sets up a rematch where Conor could potentially earn another absolutely massive payday. It wouldn't be unreasonable to assume that he would demand a minimum of 50% of revenue from a future fight. That would theoretically result in a $200-$300 million payday for Conor from the rematch. Using $200 million, after taxes that would be $100 million added to his net worth which would mean Conor could be worth $200+ million after a win and a rematch. (Update – he lost, as you probably know)

Another big question is whether or not Conor will return to the UFC cage after fighting Floyd. Conor has stated that in order to return, he would demand an ownership stake in the UFC organization. Considering the fact that Conor has proven himself to be arguably the best hype man of all time, perhaps that wouldn't be such a bad idea for UFC.
