Conor McGregor - one of the most bright and popular fighters of MMA. Successful performances, bright appearance and crazy charisma - all this played into the hands of the athlete and instantly turned him into a favorite of the public.
And where the love of the audience - there are high fees. So how much does Conor McGregor earn? And why does he throws money about?
The debut of McGregor took place on April 6, 2013 at the UFC on Fuel TV: Mousasi vs Latifi. A little-known athlete has not yet performed in the main card, but modestly huddled in the middle of the preliminary. To fight with Marcus Brimage, it took him just over a minute, and the fee for this meeting was $16,000. To be fair, we add that the spectacular victory earned him another $60,000 as a bonus for the "Knockout of the evening". Given that the Irishman recently sat on a social allowance of 750 euros a month, for him this money was a huge amount.
At UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Sonnen in August of the same 2013 Conor continued to perform in the preliminary card, but slightly higher than during the debut. Having defeated Max Holloway in the third round, McGregor received already $24,000 - one and a half times more than the first fight.
