Conor McGregor is one of the best-known mixed martial artists in the world and has made his fortune as a fighter.
During his career, McGregor has fought some of the best fighters that the world has to offer from a variety of fighting styles.
When he isn’t in the ring, McGregor can be found promoting one of his many side businesses that range from personal health to high-end men’s fashion.
This fighter may cause a lot of trouble in and out of the ring, but nobody can deny that he is incredibly business-savvy.
What Is Conor McGregor’s Net Worth?
Conor McGregor has a net worth of $200 million, most of which he has earned through his time as a mixed martial artist.
McGregor has also earned a sizable amount of his net worth through his companies: Proper No. Twelve, The Mac Life, August McGregor, and The McGregor FAST Program.
Conor McGregor was born on July 14th of 1988 in Crumlin, Ireland.
He quickly discovered his love of sports after playing soccer as a young child.
When he was only 12 years old, McGregor began training at a boxing club, and he found his passion for fighting.
Uncertain that his athletic career would ever lead him anywhere, McGregor began an apprenticeship as a plumber only five years later.
While on the job, McGregor was introduced to the UFC by fellow fighter Tom Egan.
McGregor would go on to train with Egan, which led McGregor deeper into the world of mixed martial arts.
He knew that he would have to study under many other instructors before he’d be ready for the professional league.
During this time, McGregor began to train in boxing under John Kavanagh, who was the first Irish person to achieve a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
To give his fighting style more influences, McGregor also trained in Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Capoeira, and kickboxing before he decided to enter the world of professional mixed martial arts.
During this time, McGregor was so poor that he was collecting $235 in government assistance checks each week.
Conor McGregor made a grand entrance to the amateur world of mixed martial arts by winning his first match by a total knockout in the first round.
By the time he was 25 years old, the Ultimate Fighting Championship signed McGregor to a multi-fight contract and later signed him on permanently.
Biggest Paydays As A Fighter
Throughout his career with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Conor McGregor has made a total of $115 million in earnings.
He also made $47 million through his salary and a variety of endorsements.
One of Conor McGregor’s first big fights was against Chad Mendes at UFC 189 in 2015, where he made $5 million for defeating Mendes.
After weeks of telling everyone that he would beat the famous fighter, McGregor lived up to the expectation that he created.
Although the fight saw both McGregor and Mendes get brought to their knees, McGregor ended up being the one who could spring back up and get right back into the fight.
In the end, it only took one strong left-handed punch to Mendes’s jaw to end the fight.
Later that year, McGregor would only need 13 seconds to knock out Jose Aldo to earn himself the title of UFC featherweight champion.
This victory was also the fastest in Ultimate Fighting Championship history.
Not only did the Irish fighter earn himself a championship title, but he also earned $12 million for his victory.
Before this fight, Jose Aldo had been undefeated in 18 bouts dating back to 2005.
When McGregor would go to fight Nate Diaz in 2016, he earned anywhere from $10 million to $15 million.
The pair would later fight again shortly afterward, and McGregor would earn an additional $25 million.
For his fight against Eddie Alvarez, McGregor won by total knockout in the second round and earned $7 million.
He was able to secure his first lightweight title with this victory.
McGregor would go on to make $50 million when he fought and lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The match is best known for the brawl that broke out between McGregor and Nurmagomedov.
Making Whiskey With Proper No. Twelve
Conor McGregor knew that he could grow his fortune if he invested his money in the right avenues.
Having always been a fan of whiskey, McGregor decided to create his own whiskey called Proper No. Twelve in 2018.
The name comes from McGregor’s area code in Crumlin, Ireland.
The whiskey is aged for four years before it is ready to serve.
Shortly after releasing his Irish whiskey, the Irish Whiskey Association began taking issue with the whiskey’s name and branding.
Many consumers thought that the name indicated that it had been aged for 12 years.
The Irish Whiskey Association believed that this branding problem would hurt Irish whiskey’s “rich heritage and traditions.”
McGregor had trouble naming his whiskey brand before this incident, starting weeks before he launched the alcohol brand.
Conor McGregor had first wanted to name his whiskey “Notorious,” after his fighting ring nickname “The Notorious.”
However, he withdrew his application for the name only two weeks before the launch and decided on Proper No. Twelve.
In April of 2021, McGregor decided to sell his majority ownership to the major alcohol company Proximo Spirits.
Proximo Spirits is best known for Jose Cuervo, but the company also owns many other popular alcohol brands.
Proper No. Twelve was sold for $600 million, which was split between the founders.
McGregor, his agent Audie Attar, and co-founder Ken Austin would go on to split the $600 million and an additional $250 million that the company made in its first two years of business.
Before McGregor and the other co-founders decided to sell the brand, Proximo Spirits held a 49% stake in Proper No. Twelve, which ended up being profitable for both Proximo and the original Proper No. Twelve team.
Creating The Mac Life
Conor McGregor has always seen the power that social media can have and how important it is to have an online presence as a modern-day celebrity, so he decided to make an entire fighting media company called The Mac Life.
Fighting fans who want to hear about the latest talent in mixed martial arts and keep up with Conor McGregor have a treasure trove of articles to read through.
While his website and brand are incredibly popular in the fighting world, fans love his YouTube channel the most.
Fans appreciate the channel’s perspective on fights for the Ultimate Fighting Championship and the wide number of topics it covers, from McGregor himself to the latest information on health and wellness.
The Mac Life makes a point to highlight the best talent fighting of Ireland because their amateur rings are often overshadowed by the United States’s amateur ring.
Conor McGregor often uses The Mac Life to voice his concerns about what is happening within the Ultimate Fighting Championship and to update his fans on his recent business ventures, such as his introduction to real estate.
When he isn’t talking about his personal accomplishments or career highs, McGregor takes time to show off some of his favorite new fighters like Sinead Kavanagh and Lee Hammond.
By giving these younger fighters the spotlight and support they need, McGregor hopes to show the world more Irish fighting talent.
True to McGregor’s nature, The Mac Life isn’t afraid to talk about all of the recent brawls and controversies between fighters, such as when Jon Jones was arrested or the smack talk between Bobby Green and Islam Makhachev.
This website is perfect for any McGregor or Ultimate Fighting League fan.
The Mac Life was where Connor McGregor first announced his new clothing line, August McGregor.
Entering The World Of Fashion With August McGregor
Conor McGregor has always believed that athletes should dress formally for their arrival at a match or game out of respect for themselves, their team, the opponent, and the audience at home.
He also knew the lack of options in men’s formal fashion, so he decided to be the change with his signature label, August McGregor.
McGregor was able to launch the fashion label with the help of David August Incorporated, which was started by celebrity tailor David Heil.
Heil has made suits for many famous athletes from the National Basketball Association and the National Football League, but he has also designed suits for Brad Pitt, Bruce Springsteen, and Elon Musk.
McGregor was introduced to Heil through Ultimate Fighting Championship owner Dana White, who had worked with Heil many times in the past.
When White got to know McGregor and his appreciation for a good suit, White knew that the pair would hit it off.
McGregor and Heil have been working together since 2013 and decided to start their own label five years after knowing each other.
With the excitement building around the fight between McGregor and Nurmagomedov, he knew that he should drop his first collection at the height of media coverage.
At first, the label was solely reserved for high-end suits.
As the brand gained popularity, McGregor wanted to expand his clothing brand to include athletic leisurewear, denim jackets, and even fleece sweaters.
The design process starts with David Heil selecting patterns or fabrics that he feels represent McGregor’s personal brand.
McGregor then chooses which of the chosen fabrics and designs stay or go before Heil continues with the project.
The fighter wants his consumers to be ready and fashionable for any occasion, not just formal occasions.
Training Fans With The McGregor FAST
Conor McGregor’s most recent project has been The McGregor FAST program.
Using the knowledge of the top sports medicine doctors and sports scientists, McGregor and his team have created a fitness program that promises to push users to their limits with purpose.
The FAST program is divided into three separate groups: green zone, orange zone, and red zone.
Each zone focuses on its own fitness goal.
The green zone helps users improve their endurance and allows them to build up the strength to work out for a longer time.
These workouts go on for long periods, but slowly moderate intensity to help you raise your endurance.
The orange zone workouts are meant to improve your functional strength and allow you to build up a capacity for how much your muscles are capable of doing.
Orange zone workouts will improve your total-body strength and allow you to work out at your own pace.
The hardest workouts are in the red zone, which is meant to improve your power and speed.
Red zone workouts are shorter than the other zones, but their extreme intensity is more than enough to wear you out.
While most fitness regimes are developed in a gym, the McGregor FAST program was developed in a lab and focused on how effectively each workout was actually improving the body.
Under this new regime, McGregor promises that his consumers will see a vast improvement in their health.
Becoming A Luxury Car Collector
Like many other athletes, Conor McGregor loves fast luxury cars.
His automobile collection includes a variety of supercars that cost in the six-figure range.
In 2016, McGregor was contacted by Rolls-Royce because they wanted to offer him a custom Rolls-Royce Ghost with his name and image on the side of the supercar.
This car has a value of $267,822 and wouldn’t be the last Rolls-Royce that McGregor owned.
McGregor has owned a Phantom Drophead Coupe, Wraith, Dawn, and a Phantom VIII.
McGregor has had two Lamborghini Aventador Roadsters and a Huracan Avio, all of which cost him around $830,000.
The boxer has other supercars such as a $128,726 BMW i8, $225,000 McLaren 650S, a $124,634 Mercedes-AMG S550 Coupe, and a couple of $101,000 Land Rovers.
He even got his partner Dee Devlin a $173,000 Lamborghini Urus for Christmas.
The McGregor Mansion
Conor McGregor has three different luxury homes located in Dublin, Marbella, and Las Vegas.
He has spent millions on his luxury homes for himself and his family.
McGregor’s most famous property is the McGregor Mansion in Dublin, Ireland.
The fighter bought this home for $2.25 million, which has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a living room, dining room, kitchen, and even a gaming room.
The property also has multiple horse-riding facilities with an excellent view of the River Liffey.
McGregor has also put together his own personal gym with some of the best training equipment that money can buy.
Like many other families, the McGregors knew that they wanted a vacation home to help them get away from the troubles of everyday life.
They decided to purchase a property in Marbella, Spain for $1.47 million in 2018.
This luxurious vacation home features a picturesque view of the Mediterranean Sea and is right next door to the La Resina Golf Course.
Even from the outside, you can tell that this home is high-end thanks to the LED-lit driveway and smart water features.
Although McGregor may be on vacation when he’s there, he still makes sure that he has all he needs to train inside his home.
The property also features a home spa and a large outdoor swimming pool, which can be accessed from the master bedroom.
Conor McGregor also has a property that is only 15 minutes away from the Vegas Strip in Las Vegas.
Each of the seven massive bedrooms comes with its own en-suite, and the master bathroom boasts a marble jacuzzi.
The property also has a 50-foot infinity pool and a spa that can accommodate up to 10 people.
Like his vacation home, this property has a neighboring golf course.
Running Into Trouble
Although Conor McGregor has had a successful career as a businessman and a fighter, it hasn’t come without trouble.
McGregor has been in court for multiple physical and even a case of sexual assault.
While out promoting his whiskey Proper No. Twelve in 2019, footage was captured of McGregor punching an older gentleman in the face after he refused a shot of the fighter’s whiskey.
Although the man seemed unfazed by McGregor’s punch, McGregor was still escorted out of the bar promptly.
Despite all the news and social media coverage around the incident, McGregor was able to avoid any consequences.
He wasn’t that lucky the first time he had punched a different old man in the face in 2017.
McGregor was at a bar when he and an older man got into a fight, which resulted in McGregor punching him in the face.
It was later discovered that the man had connections to the Kinahan Cartel and rumors began to run wild.
Although McGregor was able to escape any legal action, there were rumors that the Cartel wanted $1 million as compensation for what McGregor had done.
While nobody knows if that’s true or if McGregor gave them the money, he and his family seem to be living perfectly normal lives in Ireland.
The most infamous case of physical assault was the time that Conor McGregor threw a dolly at Khabib Nurmagomedov’s bus after Nurmagomedov had slapped McGregor’s friend in the face.
Instead of actually injuring Nurmagomedov when McGregor shattered the bus windows, he injured multiple unrelated fighters.
In 2018, McGregor was involved in a sexual assault case.
However, the facts of what happened are scarce, and the victim never wanted to testify out of fear.
Due to the lack of testimony, it is unlikely this case will go anywhere.
