Conor McGregor is one of biggest names in UFC history. He is perhaps the most famous UFC fighter in the world. On a Twitter Q&A, when he was prompted with the question about how long would it take for him to become a billionaire, he replied that he’ll become one at “35 years of age.”
The 32 year old mix martial artist has a net worth of about €200 million ($239 million). In an attempt to put himself out there and connect more with his fans, Conor asked his 8.3 million Twitter followers to ask him questions.
If the millionaire fighter turns into a billionaire in the year 2024, he’ll be among a select few sportsmen who are in the billionaire club. The names of sports billionaires are football superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Michael Jordan, Floyd Mayweather and Tiger Woods.
The Notorious Conor McGregor is one of the highest paid UFC fighters of all time, reportedly raking up about $80 million in his fight against Floyd Mayweather, which was 4 years ago.
He is also going to sell the remaining stake in his Proper 12 whisky company, after which he will have $112 million in returns.
After being asked about the toughest opponent McGregor has ever faced, he said “Nate Diaz. The west coast zombie.” McGregor and Diaz first fought in 2016, the conclusion to which was the Irishman scoring his first loss in the UFC & Diaz winning big.
Nate Diaz & Conor rematched again in August of the same year, where McGregor took his revenge. However, he did confirm that there will be a final match up in this trilogy, and it will be ‘epic.’
The trilogy will be of epic proportions when it goes down. Nathan, and his fighting styles, are never far from my thoughts throughout my own practices. When it happens, I’m ready.
