Conor McGregor’s last fight at UFC 257 against Dustin Poirier did not end the way he wanted it to at all. He snapped his leg at the end of the first round, and now he is on the mend. His ridiculous pay-per-view payday will likely help him out.

Notorious uploaded what appears to be a receipt for his UFC 257 fight against Poirier. According to the documentation, that August 30th pay-per-view generated 1,504,737 pay-per-view buys.

By the way, that number is huge, and 4,449 more than the projected buys of 1,5000,238. Obviously, Conor McGregor has a lot to be happy about as he proves yet again why Dana White hasn’t fired him yet.

Conor is worth a ton of money. We’re not sure exactly what his cut of those 1.5 million buys was, but he doesn’t seem to be complaining about a payday right now.

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.
