    Then he broke the global PPV record in 2017

    Conor McGregor is the first MMA fighter to make $100,000,000M in MMA

    Most hardcore MMA fans wants fighters to be paid more

    Except when it's the biggest meteoric rise in combat sports history - Conor McGregor

    It's bizarre how some SherDorks think the biggest star in the history of MMA isn't entitled to taking a break during contract negotiations. Boxers with fair revenue share would retire their grandchildren from fighting Conor McGregor once.

    If Conor was a boxer, he'd likely clear 9 figures in less than half the fights of his current 8 fight UFC contract. Reebok gets away with murder by paying him $40, 000 / fight to sponsor him.

    Conor's biggest reported UFC payday is less than $4 million at UFC 205

    There's a strong argument that Conor is one of the most underpaid fighters in the UFC

    202 was Nate Diaz's PPV, not Conor's. Nate was the A side.

    Eat that, Mcnutgobblers!

    Nate was proven to be the better fighter at UFC 196 but that doesn't correlate with him being the A side financially speaking.

    If Conor was a boxer he'd still be on welfare

    he doesn't get that 100mil boxing fight if his mother didn't give birth to him so what is your point, he put himself in that spot to get the fight, he took the opportunities that the UFC gives him and so he got the fight.

    196 does 700k buys if McGregor fought RDA.

    205 was selling over 1 million without Conor

    202 sold the way it did because of Diaz, not Conor
