Conor McGregor has never been shy about showing off his millions earned through years of blood, sweat and tears.

But his most recent paycheck could be one of his biggest to date.

According to “Notorious,” he is set to make an estimated $80 million for his comeback fight against Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 on Jan. 18, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“I’m confident it’s going to be a nice paycheck. Probably (most ever) in my mixed martial arts (MMA) career,” he said during his interview with ESPN.

“Yeah, I’d say about, it could be, I’m estimating a good $80 million.”

Furthermore, he raveled he banked $50 million for his championship fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 2229 in October of 2018.

It was recently revealed that Conor would bank an up front salary of $5 million from UFC itself, so perhaps the $80 million includes, sponsors, PPV points and other back-end profits he may be getting fro his arrangements with UFC.

That said, if the $80 million claim is true, it still won’t be his biggest check ever.

According to some reports, he scored $100 million for his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather a few years ago.

It’s good to be the king!
