Conor McGregor closed 2017 with a net worth of $99 million according to Forbes and was the 12th highest paid athlete. McGregor launched Proper Twelve whiskey as the sponsor for UFC 229 when he fought in the biggest event in UFC history against Khabib Nurmagomedov. The whiskey industry is a billion dollar business and could land McGregor in the billionaire’s club in the next three years.
McGregor earned $85 million for his boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather in August of 2017. He was guaranteed $30 million for taking the fight and a portion of the fight revenue. Before his fight with Mayweather, Mcgregor was being paid $3 million guaranteed per fight and closed about $7 million in endorsements. McGregor earned somewhere around $30 million from three fights in the UFC in 2016.
For his UFC 229 fight with Khabib, McGregor looks to make about $50 million after the estimated 3.7 million ppv buys. Just prior to UFC 229 Conor had signed a six fight deal with the UFC at eight figures per fight.
The Irish MMA star also has multiple sponsorship deals with Burger King, Beats by Dre, Monster Energy, David August, BSN, Anheuser-Busch, HiSmile and Betsafe. He also has a residency deal with the Wynn Las Vegas for all of his afterparties, and his digital properties, Conor McGregor FAST Program, MacMoji App, MacTalk App and the Mac Life. These deals can bank McGregor an additional $2-$5 Million per year.
McGregor should be back in the octagon in the Summer of 2019 and should earn a net worth of over 200 million in UFC fights, endorsements and Proper Twelve whiskey sales.
