Former two division champion Conor Mcgregor has made an incredible rise since 2008 to 2017.
After a highly anticipated boxing match last year, both Mcgregor and Mayweather have been living a dream life through that mega payday they receive.
Since that, Mayweather who’s traveling across the globe while McGregor is currently dealing with law, after his infamous bus rampage back in April.
Not only Mayweather defeated Irishman in the 10th round of their August money fight, but he also defeated Mcgregor in the Forbes Celebrity 100 list for 2018:
The UFC’s biggest star has not stepped foot in the Octagon professionally since November 2016, but Conor McGregor scored his biggest payday to date thanks to a 2017 boxing match with Floyd Mayweather. McGregor banked an estimated $85 million for the fight, more than five times his previous top paycheck. The fight had 4.3 million PPV buys and generated more than $550 million in revenue. The Irishman signed a slew of deals over the past 12 months with the buzz around the Mayweather fight. His current partners are Burger King, Beats by Dre, Monster Energy, David August, BSN, Anheuser-Busch, HiSmile and Betsafe. He also has a residency deal with the Wynn Las Vegas for all of his afterparties, and his digital properties, Conor McGregor FAST Program, MacMoji App, MacTalk App and the Mac Life, also generate cash.
Mayweather’s victory took his professional career record to 50-0, and he has since retired from the boxing ring.
Conor Mcgregor has a chance to score another enormous payday if he settles a court deal by July 26. As far when he’s going to return to Octagon is to remain seen, but as for his next opponent, current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is in headlines to face Irishman.
Tony Ferguson also has unfinished business with Russian, told TSN during a media scrum last week that he believes McGregor isn’t in contention to challenge for the 155lbs crown. But again, it all depends on if Mcgregor clears out his legal troubles and returns to Octagon by 2018.
