One of his fans asked him at what age he will officially become a billionaire, ‘The Notorious‘ one tweeted him back and wrote, “35“. McGregor is certainly on a path to become a billionaire. He recently climbed to the top spot on the Forbes list of the highest-paid celebrities.

This is not the first time that Conor has shown his interest in becoming a billionaire.

Clearly, this battle will not end soon. Conor certainly isn’t happy with ‘DC‘ as he bonds well with his rivals, Dustin Poirier and Khabib Nurmagomedov. The ball has now landed on Cormier’s side, and it will be interesting to see his reply on the same.
