Find Out How Wealthy Conor McGregor Really is, and How Did He Amass All His Fortune

There is no debate that Conor McGregor has become one of the wealthiest fighters in the world. He amassed an insane amount of money fighting in the Ultimate Fighting Championship as well as in boxing when he fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. in The Money Figh. Aside from that, he’s currently doing an impressive job as an entrepreneur.

Is He a Billionaire?

However, his recent Instagram post made a lot of critics’ eyebrows raise. While it’s true that he fought for billionaires like the former chief executive officer of the Ultimate Fighting Championship,  Lorenzo Fertitta, his claim that he eventually followed their footsteps in the Billionaire’s Club made the whole world question his personal net worth.

He definitely earned tons of fortune at the UFC 229 last year during his match with Khabib Nurmagomedov. He has been selling out stadium tickets and pay-per-view sales since 2008 and signed numerous lucrative endorsement deals. Not to mention the paid appearances in interviews, photoshoots, etc.

Conor McGregor’s Business Ventures

Conor McGregor said he wants to focus on establishing his whiskey business, Proper No. Twelve

In addition to that, he’s taking home fat paychecks from his whiskey brand, Proper No. Twelve and clothing line August McGregor. But, even if we sum up his revenues from all of his ventures, McGregor still has a long way ahead of him before he could finally call himself a billionaire. In fact, he’s just currently worth over $100 million, and he’s certainly not even halfway into becoming a billionaire yet.

That’s probably his goal because he’s seriously expanding his empire. He also founded the company McGregor Sports and Entertainment that handles his public brands such as the application Mac Talk and the website Mac Life. His partnerships with big companies like Beats by Dre, Burger King, and Anheuser-Busch add millions of dollars to his bank account as well.

It took him more than a decade to amass the fortune that he has today, so he might need another decade or two to reach the point where he could finally call himself a billionaire. Although it is not impossible that he could achieve it in just a few more years. As long as his businesses continue to grow, the zeros in his net worth would keep on multiplying.

Will He Retire From Fighting?

The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion already voiced out his plans on retiring to focus more on his corporate life. Although, a hundred-million fight like his boxing match with Mayweather in 2017 would undeniably bring plenty of cash to his bank account.

Perhaps, his claim is also McGregor’s way of attracting the growth of his monetary status. Either way, he’s pretty much doing a very great job in everything that he does, financially speaking.
