Despite dropping out of the top 10 richest athletes this year, McGregor is still worth a fortune.
An OLBG study found that the biggest pay-per-view draw in MMA history makes a whopping $8m for every minute he spends in the Octagon.
Which leads us viewers to question why would he stop so many fights in the first round?
Thanks to a Twitter thread from Andrew Petcash, we can now take a look into Notorious’ financials, both from the Octagon and away from it.
‘The Money Fight’
Conor ‘Notorious’ McGregor’s fight with boxing star Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather was the second most-watched fight of all time, after Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao, and is projected to have earned the fighters a combined $400M.
The outspoken Irishman made $158m dollars last year, the most ever made by an athlete in a calendar year.
McGregor’s endorsements include Reebok, Burger King, Beats by Dre, Monster, EA and Draft Kings.
The star has invested in his own fitness programme titled FAST.
The FAST fight lab is described as “a revolutionary fitness experience that brings the coaching, technology and structure of an elite performance facility into the comfort of your home.”
Last year, FAST earned McGregor $5m in revenue.
Conor’s lifestyle and fashion line was created alongside David Heil — an A-list designer to the likes of Kobe Bryant, Canelo Alvarez, Brad Pitt, Bruce Springsteen and Elon Musk.
It is described as “a lifestyle brand for men like Conor McGregor who have an attitude of excellence about everything they do in life and appreciate the finest in luxury fashion.”
This investment gains the Irishman a whopping $50m in profit.
The Mac Life
McGregor’s own media website has 1.2m YouTube subscribers.
The website features sections for McGregor, MMA, Sport, Health & Fitness and Style.
Almost every video garners six-figure views and generates $1000s of revenue in advertisements.
McGregor’s own whiskey brand made a huge $1bn in sales in its inaugural year.
In April 2021, the UFC star sold his majority stake to Proximo Spirits for $600m.
McGregor is estimated to have made $150m profit in this investment alone.
McGregor has given back some of his fortune in aiding others.
He has donated $1m to families of deceased first responders.
He has built homes for the homeless of Dublin and donated $1.4m in PPE kit to the healthcare workers of Ireland.
Billionaire at 35 years old
McGregor has shown he is not just a gifted fighter, but also an intelligent businessman. His investments have made him a fortune and he is projected to be a billionaire by the time he is 35 years old.
