It’s safe to say that Conor McGregor is something of a phenomenon.
The mixed martial artist and boxer has had a LOT of success over the years, and is a former UFC featherweight and lightweight double champion.
After a meteoric rise, the star now rakes in the cash as he takes part in glitzy boxing matches in Las Vegas- making him the biggest pay-per-view draw in boxing history.
So just how much is the champ worth?

Conor McGregor: The Brand
At this point, Conor McGregor’s net worth began to soar.
He was now fighting regularly in Las Vegas, and embarking on swanky world tours to promote each event.
Rather than being paid for his performance in the ring, the champ started receiving cash just for making appearances at boxing events.
His 2017 fight with Floyd Mayweather earned him a cool $100 million
, while his fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov a year later saw him rake in $50 million respectively.
But the boxing champ didn’t just earn his fortunes through boxing- his own unique brand also came in handy when it came to promoting his own whisky company, Proper Twelve.

The star launched Proper Twelve back in 2018, and officially became the world’s richest athlete when he sold it for $150 million
But the star claims that the deal will actually end up netting him a profit of up to $700 million. That’s confidence for you!
Chatting with News.com.au
, Conor McGregor revealed:
"I haven't touched the most delicious Irish whiskey on the planet Proper 12 at all this camp, I haven't actually touched it since we re-upped the deal.
It's upwards of $700m that deal is worth over the coming years and I haven't celebrated with a glass yet because I was in camp so I stayed focused."
This could end up pushing the boxing star to billionaire status over the next few years.
But despite his eye-watering fortunes, it seems that Conor is still a family man at heart.
Conor McGregor and his fiancée Dee Devlin have been together for over nine years, and share three adorable children together; Conor Junior, daughter Croia, and baby Rian, who was born in May of this year.
