Conor McGregor is back, and so are the biggest paydays in MMA history.
Recent reports have revealed just how much “Notorious” will make for his highly-anticipated return to the cage on Jan. 18, 2020 to face Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Essential Sports is reporting that Conor will bank a whopping $5 million for his first fight in over a year. That is his highest up front purse to date. For his troubles, “Cowboy” will make $2 million.
That is also Cerrone’s biggest payday to date, which proves exactly why everyone wants to have a fight against Conor, since paychecks increase exponentially.
Of course, that is just up front salary and does not include pay-per-view (PPV) points, sponsorship dollars that could increase each fighters respective payout a couple more million.
It’s going to be read panty night indeed!
When you break records like that, you command a lot of money for your services, which is why Conor is, and always has been, the biggest draw in the history of the sport.
