Conor McGregor, without a doubt, is the biggest name in the world of mixed martial arts. Recently, he cemented his status as a global superstar by being listed among the top 50 highest-paid athletes of all time. His lifetime earnings are a whopping $615 million and he only falls behind legends like Michael Jordan, Floyd Mayweather, Mike Tyson, and a few more notable names. The Irishman’s remarkable achievement is even more impressive when you consider that he is the only MMA fighter to ever make it to the list. However, the Irishman has now gone one step further and has become the wealthiest mixed martial artist to ever exist. Despite his enormous wealth, McGregor is not one to forget his roots or the importance of giving back to the community. The Irishman is a philanthropist at heart and regularly donates to various charities.
