Conor McGregor Is About To Have The Biggest Payday In UFC History

Jan 16, 2020

Like him or love him, Conor McGregor knows how to make money. Conor sat down with UFC reporter Ariel Hilwani and said he is poised to make $80 million this weekend in his fight with Cowboy Cerone.

Dana White has since refuted these claims when asked about the outrageous pay day saying:

““Listen, Conor is a massive superstar in this sport and he’s a phenomenon. The kid has been making big money since the day he stepped in,”.

“From day one, since he fought he started to go (up). Nothing has changed. Obviously, he needs a win and it’s a big deal for him to get back here and win this fight.”

Why is this such a big deal?

In the UFC an $80 million payday is massive. Other fighters don’t make anywhere close to that. Dana White is probably furious his figure has been released.

In other McGregor news, a fun moment happened at the UFC 246 presser. Ex NFL player Chad Ochocinco joined the media scrum to ask Conor a question.

Great stuff. I will be watching Saturday night, will you?
