Former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor will end his fifteen months of inactivity when he fights Donald Cerrone.

The fight will take place at UFC 246. There’s a lot of excitement and buzz for the return of the Irishman at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Ahead of the fight, Conor McGregor revealed in an interview with Ariel Helwani of ESPN that he was making a staggering $80 Million for this bout.

It was hard to believe fact for many MMA fans as even for his fight against UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229, he made $50 Million. UFC 229 was the highest selling PPV in UFC history, selling 2.4 Million buys.

I’m confident it’s going to be a nice paycheck. Probably [most ever] in my mixed martial arts [MMA] career,” Conor McGregor said to ESPN. “Yeah, I’d say about, it could be, I’m estimating a good $80 million.”

How much is Conor McGregor making in guaranteed money?

However, the Nevada State Athletic Commission (via MMA Fighting) revealed the guaranteed purses for the fight. McGregor is making $3 Million for this fight.

While McGregor can still reach the $80 Million number when the sponsorship and PPV point is considered. However, veteran journalists like Luke Thomas disagree with the figures Conor gave.

His opponent Donald Cerrone is making meagre amount when compared to Conor McGregor. He is making $200,000 to show and another $200,000 to win.
