Conor McGregor is set for another hefty payday when he returns to the octagon this weekend and faces Dustin Poirier at UFC 257.
‘The Notorious’, who took just 40 seconds to beat Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone last January, announced in June that he had decided to walk away from the world of MMA.

But the maverick fighter pulled off a U-turn a few months later and is now gearing up for his return to action.
He’ll take on Poirier on Fight Island this weekend as the UFC kicks off 2021 with a blockbuster.
McGregor is set bank another hefty paycheque from his latest fight but it will be significantly lower than his previous purses given the issues surrounding COVID-19.
According to Forbes, McGregor got a base salary of £2.5million for his blockbuster UFC 229 bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov with the record PPV buys and other endorsements helping push his total take home pay to more than £45million.

He is expected to take around £6m for this weekend’s fight and a victory will set him up for another huge year.

Conor McGregor net worth
According to reports, McGregor’s net worth could be as much as $130million and that is only set to increase as his tag as a global superstar grows.
Away from the octagon, McGregor recently renewed his sponsorship deal with Reebok which sees him earn up to $5m-per-year.
He has endorsed brands such as Burger King and Beats by Dre and has also founded his popular Irish whisky distiller Proper No. Twelve.
McGregor posted on social media in 2019 that his spirit has sold in huge numbers, saying: “Over $1b generated in Whiskey sales in my first year! Like it or not, there is a new King in town! Proper Whiskey, liquid sunshine!”
McGregor’s most lucrative payday to date came in his exhibition boxing bout against Floyd Mayweather.
The event was the one of the biggest PPV events of all time generating 4.3million buys and earned McGregor in excess of $85m.
McGregor has over 38million followers on Instagram and makes huge earnings from his posts on the social media site.
