Conor McGregor is a name that brings the entire MMA community together. It’s no wonder that he holds the record of three of the first four highest PPV in sports combat history. McGregor has said it in the past, and rightfully so, he can pull the crowd and bring money for the company. That involves the fighters and the journalist who cover them. It’s always a good business that surrounds any Conor McGregor fight. After fetching millions and millions from each of his fights, Conor McGregor will yet again net $3 million for his upcoming bout against Donald Cerrone.
Conor Mcgregor pocketed $3 million in his last fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. The official purse pay has always seen the million mark for McGregor, and once again, he will walk millions richer when he walks out of the octagon on Saturday.
Conor McGregor earns the biggest pay-day yet again
Dana White reporter earlier that the UFC 246 gate has already amassed more than $10 million. According to Nevada State Athletic Commission, Conor McGregor will earn the same amount, he pocketed during his bout against Khabib Nurmagomedov. However, the total collection will add up the PPV sales, which will reveal the final amount that Conor McGregor will pocket from this fight. However, UFC never releases the final salary of its fighters.
Donald Cerrone will pocket $200,000 for showing up to the fight, and another $200,000 if he can come out victorious in the fight. While the numbers don’t look big considering how McGregor has claimed that he will fetch millions for Donald. It is expected to be huge after the PPV numbers come in. Cerrone’s share in the PPV sales will certainly fetch him in his first big million after years in the company.
McGregor claimed that he would make around $80 million from the upcoming PPV UFC 246. In the press conference and his recent interactions with the media, McGregor has repeatedly claimed that he is the money fight. And looking at the numbers, it feels like he was right. However, Conor has no win bonuses attached to his name, in the list released by Nevada State Athletic Commission.
