Find Out How Conor McGregor Managed to Stay Rich Despite Laying Low from Fighting
Known for his triggering trash talks and expertise in fighting, Conor Anthony McGregor has become one of the most popular fighters on Earth. He currently ranks number three in the official UFC lightweight line-up and eleventh in the official UFC pound-for-pound rankings.
Conor Anthony McGregor’s Career
Although McGregor hasn’t been making a lot of noise lately, he’s actually been silently making tons of money. In fact, he came in at number sixty-five in the list of 100 highest-paid celebrities in 2019 with $47 million in earnings. We’ve last seen him come on the ring in 2018 during his fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov. Even though he lost that match, he took home over $30 million from his pay-per-view earnings and his upfront paycheck.
MMA, UFC, and Boxing
McGregor has been an Ultimate Fighting Championship superstar. He was the king in the UFC featherweight category as well as in the lightweight division. He also pursued a career in boxing where he fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. Their match entitled The Money Fight was one of the biggest and loudest fights of the decade.
He started as an MMA fighter in 2008 where he snatched his featherweight and lightweight championship belts in the Cage Warriors. In 2015, he set a world record by knocking-out Jose Aldo within 13 seconds at the UFC 194 fight making him the new UFC Featherweight Champion.
He also became the first fighter in the history of UFC to hold two titles in two different divisions when he defeated Eddie Alvarez at the UFC 205 match earning him the UFC Lightweight Championship belt. Then, he tried to snatch another belt in boxing but lost the fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in 2017.
Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey
The Irish professional mixed martial artist and boxer already expressed his thoughts on leaving the fighting industry for good. We’re already halfway in ending 2019, but we’ve seen no action from the Irish fighter. His attention currently revolves in his whiskey brand, Proper No. Twelve, which sold over 200,000 boxes within the first six months of its release.
Gaining massive popularity from his fights, he also signed numerous endorsement deals with several companies including Beats by Dre, Reebok, Monster Energy, Bud Light, and Burger King. He also made a partnership with David August in founding the fashion brand August McGregor.
The former UFC champion is looking forward to growing his whiskey business and produce more in the future. Aside from that, he also earned approximately $15 million from his product endorsements. So it seems like McGregor really plans to use his communication skills in corporate meetings now, rather than trash-talking to his contenders in pre-match press conferences.
