Conor McGregor is one of the most successful and recognisable fighters in UFC history.

The Irishman has become a household name within the Octagon ever since making his UFC debut in 2013. His brash and controversial nature has led to several high-profile feuds and he never fails to make the headlines. 

Hard work reaps reward and McGregor's rise to the top of UFC has seem him pick up a hefty pocket along the way.

As way as being a successful businessman with his clothing and whiskey lines, McGregor has often been the man in demand for the big headline fight, meaning he can dictate his price. 

His debut fight in 2013 against Marcus Brimage earned him a now measly looking £55,000. What looks like life-changing amounts on paper have now become pocket change for 'Notorious', with his last fight against Dustin Poirier in January earning him a whopping £3,660,000. 

Of course, the pinnacle of his financial gain came in his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather.

Going up against a man nicknamed 'Money' would only mean one thing. Like McGregor, Mayweather was the cocky star of his own sport, with the pair ensuring they got every penny they could as McGregor walked away after his defeat £72 million richer. Not bad for a night's work!

Below we'll have a look at McGregor's incredible career to date and just what each fight has done for his bank balance.

As he pursues a trilogy fight with Poirier, expect these figures to rise..
