    He’s pretty modest. Prob too humble to tell people how much he actually made as he doesn’t want others to feel bad. Nice guy.

    They say they're suspicious of his claim. They aren't outright claiming it's false.

    I think it's false. It's Conor talking big and exaggerating like he often does. But for him to say a number so high, it has to at least be in the tens of millions.

    He says he made 50 million from the khabib fight, he didnt say that was his show money. Think outside the box, he has endorsements, advertising for his business, revenue for whiskey sales, fight purse, etc

    Dont be such marks

    An EBITDA of 240 mill in 2018 is no small change, but is WAY below what is expected.
    Somebody (in Vegas or in Ireland) will be busted big time by IRS of equivalent very soon....

    Is it not obvious that when he throws out the 80 million figure he's talking about from the fight, his proper 12 brand, and who else knows what all types of promotional/marketing things he's got going on from taking this fight!??

    yeah, even Conor didnt believe what he was saying you could see him stuttering and stammering with a half assed smile. 80 million that means the company would not make any profit lol

    His source of income is much wider than any other fighter's

    These bloody elbow 'experts' would try to predict his pay based on what's been released in the antitrust lawsuit / court docs + they use Hal Singer's reports...meh

    They think they have evidence and their argument is "Maybe that’s exactly what happened, but I’m a little suspicious of those numbers he’s throwing out." LOL

    Conor is a humanitarian. He is trying to force the UFC to pay more to the other fighters. "Hey, look at how much Conor makes. Pay me more."

    Conor bless.

    P.S. You know Conor would win the classic UFC tournaments.

    Conman was telling lies?

    If he lies about this... what else might he be lying about?
