    McGregor most certainly flexing here, but if he beats Aldo and becomes the superstar he's expected to be, I could see him being the first to crack 8 figures far down the road.

    If he was willing to bet 3 million I'm guessing if he was making a sizeable cut.

    PPV sold very well and their is a possibility that dana took mcgregors bet. Dana loves to gamble.

    Not bad for a fight where he was injured.

    Ppv points, plus 500k, plus the 3m bet (if its true) got him close though. Maybe 7-8m.

    Maybe he made 7 million after PPV cut + the 3 million bet against Dana/Ferrita

    I can easily believe he made multiple seven figures, but cracking eight sounds like stretching. Of course none of us has access to his bank account so we won't ever know for sure unless he flashes bank statements live on TV.

    I think those tweets were referring to the deal for his next fight, not his last one.

    Well according to the disclosed pay he only made $500k, so there's absolutely no way, none, zip, zero, zilch chance he made more than that--if you believe 90% of the morons here on Sherdog.

    Suppose the card got 950,000 buys

    The star fighter would receive points from 750,000 of them.

    His base pay was $500,000, so for an eight figure pay day he would need around $12-$13 per PPV buy in excess of 200,000

    Aka hes bluffing
