He was born on July 14, 1988, in Crumlin, Ireland. As a child, he was very good at sports, especially soccer. When he was 12, he started going to a boxing club to train. He started working as a plumber at the age of 17 in 2006, when he was just 15. It was through this job that he met Tom Egan, a UFC fighter, and learned about the sport. They began training together soon after that.
As a child, McGregor learned how to fight with his hands. He then took lessons from John Kavanagh, the first Irish person to get a black belt in Brazilian jigsaw, and his team at SBG Ireland. Before he competed in professional mixed martial arts, he also took lessons in Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Capoeira, and Kickboxing, as well as other moves.
At the age of 18, Conor made his first amateur MMA fight. By TKO, he won his first match. In just a few weeks, Conor was so broke that he was living on the streets in Ireland and getting $235 a week from the state.
In February 2013, the UFC said that they had signed McGregor to a long-term deal. At the time, he was the second Irish fighter to fight for the company, after welterweight Tom Egan. McGregor made his UFC debut against Marcus Brimage on April 6, 2013. He won by TKO just over a minute into the first round, which was just over a minute into the first round. McGregor also won his first Knockout of the Night award after the win, which was also his first.
McGregor is a wide-stance striker who has also been able to use a wide range of other combat forms to get where he is today and become one of the top 10. Some say his best move is his quick straight arm left jab. McGregor had a great rise for a UFC fighter who was born outside of the U.S.
A fight between Conor and Chad Mendes at UFC 189 earned him $5 million. Conor earned a reported $12 million on December 11, 2015, when he beat Jose Aldo in 13 seconds to win the fight. At UFC 196 on March 5, 2016, Conor is said to have made at least $10 million, and maybe even $15 million. When he fought Nate Diaz again at UFC 202, he is said to have made $25 million. He made about $7 million in November 2016 when he fought Eddie Alvarez and won. He made an estimated $50 million when he fought Khabib Nurmagomedov in October of last year.
Total UFC earnings so far: about $115 million. This includes the $50 million Khabib payoff.
On January 18, 2020, Conor beat Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in his much-anticipated return to the UFC, which was a huge deal. A record for the UFC: Conor was paid $5 million for the fight. When he talks, he says that if Pay Per View sales go well, he could make more than $80 million from the fight with Cerrone. If Cerrone showed up, he was paid $2 million.
The match took place on January 23, 2021. Conor lost to Dustin Poirier. Once again, Conor was given $5 million. Conor lost the match, which effectively cost him a lot of money in the future because he killed another match against Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor took place on August 26, 2017. Conor switched from fighting in the MMA cage to fighting in the boxing ring. There were 4.3 million people who bought the fight on PPV at one point. When Conor was at that level, he made an estimated $100 million from guarantees and merchandise royalties, concessions, bonuses, and other things. If you think Conor lost about 50% of his money to taxes, he had a net worth of $85 million after the Floyd fight.
There were a lot of endorsement deals for Conor between June 2017 and June 2018. He made about $14 million from deals with companies like Burger King, Beats by Dre, and Anheuser-Busch, as well.
If Conor had been able to beat Mayweather against all odds, it would have set up a rematch where Conor could have earned another huge payday. It’s not very likely that he would have been able to get at least 50% of the money from a future fight. That could have led to a $200-$300 million payday.
On September 20, 2018, Conor said that he had agreed to fight for the UFC for eight years. On the very low end, the deal could be worth $200 million.
In a tweet on March 25, 2019, Conor said he was giving up mixed martial arts so that he could focus on his new businesses, like his Proper 12 whiskey brand. If he is done fighting, he will have earned about $235 million during his career.
