Conor McGregor will make at least $20 million despite the result of the fight. While the fight purse has yet not been disclosed, ‘Notorious’ will expect to make the same amount of money as he did for the UFC 257 fight with ‘The Diamond.’

And with crowds returning to the T-Mobile Arena after more than a year and White’s claims that the PPV sales may top two million. We can expect McGregor to make anything between $25 to $30 million. Poirier however will earn much less, but will still expect to make more than the guaranteed $1 million he made for their previous fight.

Usually, four fighters will be given the Fight of the Night bonus, and two fighters will get the Performance of the Night bonus.
