UFC megastar Conor McGregor’s staggering career earnings have been revealed, with the lucrative boxing crossover bout with Floyd Mayweather unsurprisingly pocketing Notorious the most cash.

Ahead of his rematch with Dustin Poirier this weekend, the Irish fighter was seen showing off his new £740,000 night sky watch as he arrived by yacht in Abu Dhabi, with McGregor expected to take home another huge purse after his much-anticipated return to the Octagon.

According to The Mirror, McGregor’s earnings started back in 2013 as he beat Marcus Brimage thanks to a first-round knockout. He pocketed £55,000 after victory in Sweden, before his earnings started to skyrocket in future fights.

His two blockbuster bouts with Nate Diaz in 2016 saw the Dublin-born fighter pick up over £3 million. Fights with Eddie Alvarez, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Donald Cerrone all paid out over £2 million, while his record-breaking boxing clash with Floyd Mayweather saw McGregor take home an eye-watering £72 million.

To put that figure into context, Arsenal paid the same amount for winger Nicolas Pepe.

The southpaw fighter, who has a professional MMA record of 22-4, has picked up a number of Performance of the Night bonuses alongside a long-standing Reebok partnership which has helped see his earnings rise.

Below are his full earnings thanks to The Mirror.
