Conor McGregor once famously said, "I'm 30 now, say by 35 I'll be a billionaire." A man of his words, 'The Notorious' is very well headed that way with fight purses, endorsements, and profit from his whiskey company combined.

Conor McGregor is by far the richest athlete in UFC. His per fight salary is almost double than the second or third highest paid fighters in the company, like Alistair Overeem or Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Here's a look at the overall net worth of Conor McGregor in 2020.


How much is Conor McGregor worth?

According to several sources, Conor McGregor net worth in 2020 stands at $120 million.

Forbes lists The Irishman at #16 on their World's Highest Paid Athletes of 2020. His earnings from this year are shown as $48 million as of June, comprised of $32 million official payday for UFC 246 and $16 million for endorsements.

He has also recently renewed his deal with Reebok, earning him another $5 million per year. On top of this, there is the revenue income from his Irish whiskey company, Proper No. Twelve. Whiskey sales generated over $1 billion in the first year of the company, according to McGregor's Instagram post. The former two-division Champion donates a large part of the sum towards First Responders and Veteran support causes around the world.

Conor McGregor had only one UFC outing this year - against Donald Cerrone at UFC 246. It was his first fight since losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov the year before.

Ahead of the fight, Conor McGregor sat down with ESPN's Ariel Helwani and disclosed how much he earned for his last fight and how much he was expecting for the next.

'The Notorious' predicted an $80 million payday for the fight against 'Cowboy', and revealed that he made $50 million for the fight versus Khabib.
