Conor McGregor commands a lot of attention and a massive payday as well. He has now topped all other UFC fighters as the richest the promotion has to offer.

McGregor is the biggest draw in UFC and his bank account is also loaded. We’ve previously covered how much he spends on his suits alone. Click here for those massive numbers. Needless to say, he has plenty of cash to spare.

His UFC pay-per-views consistently bring in over 1 million buys and he gets a cut of that. At this point in history, he has been featured in 7 out of the top 10 UFC pay-per-views of all time.

McGregor also has his hands in other businesses that drives up his value even more. Proper 12, his whiskey brand, is also going strong and those media blitzes featuring Notorious casually talking up his branded booze pay off in a big way.

The famous UFC fighter also recently sold off a majority of his business for $158 million. His net worth is estimated to be around $400 million now, putting him above the rest in terms of UFC fighter value.

To put it into perspective, Khabib Nurmagomedov comes in second place after McGregor with a value of $40 million. Obviously, Conor McGregor’s brand and name notoriety paid off huge for him despite all of the controversies he encountered along the way.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
