Conor Anthony McGregor was born in the Irish town of Crumlin on July 14, 1988. As a child, he was very good at sports, especially soccer, but when he was 12, he joined a boxing club and started training. Conor began learning how to be a plumber in 2006 when he was 17 years old. Tom Egan, a UFC fighter, introduced him to the sport through this job. Soon, Egan and McGregor started working out together.
McGregor learned to box first, and then he trained with John Kavanagh, the first person from Ireland to get a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and his team at SBG Ireland. Before he became a professional MMA fighter, he also trained in Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Capoeira, and Kickboxing.

Conor McGregor UFC
UFC Conor's first MMA fight as an amateur was a year later when he was 18. In his first fight, he won with a TKO in the first round. A few weeks before his first MMA match, Conor was so poor that he was on welfare in Ireland and getting $235 a week from the government.
In February 2013, the UFC said that McGregor had signed a contract for more than one fight. At the time, he was the second boxer from the Republic of Ireland to fight for the company. The first was Tom Egan, who was a welterweight. McGregor's first fight in the UFC was on April 6, 2013, against Marcus Brimage. He won his first fight by TKO just over a minute into the first round. McGregor also got his first Knockout of the Night award for this win.
McGregor is a wide-stance striker who has also made a lot of other fighting styles work for him and helped him get to the top 10. Some people say that his fast straight-arm left jab is his best move. For a UFC fighter who was born outside of the U.S., McGregor had an amazing rise.

Conor Mcgregor's Biggest Ufc Paychecks Came From
At UFC 189 on July 11, 2015, Conor beat Chad Mendes and won $5 million. On December 11, 2015, Conor beat Jose Aldo in 13 seconds and was said to have made $12 million. People say that when Conor fought Nate Diaz at UFC 196 on March 5, 2016, he made at least $10 million and maybe as much as $15 million.
When he fought Nate Diaz again at UFC 202, he reportedly made $25 million. In November 2016, when he fought Eddie Alvarez, he made about $7 million. In October 2018, he fought Khabib Nurmagomedov and made about $50 million.
So far, the UFC has made about $115 million, which includes Khabib's $50 million paydays.
On January 18, 2020, Conor's long-awaited return to the UFC came true when he beat Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. Conor was promised $5 million for the fight, which was a UFC record at the time. In interviews, he has said that if Pay Per View sales go well, he could make more than $80 million from the Cerrone fight. If Cerrone showed up, he was promised $2 million.
Conor lost to Dustin Poirier on January 23, 2021. Conor was promised $5 million once more. The loss cost Conor a huge payday in the future because it stopped another match between him and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Floyd Mayweather's Money From Fights
Conor fought Floyd Mayweather on August 26, 2017, in a boxing ring instead of an MMA cage. Mayweather had never lost a fight before. The fight was one of the most profitable PPV events ever, with 4.3 million people buying it. At that level, Conor's guarantees, merchandise royalties, concessions, and bonuses added up to about $100 million. If you assume that Conor lost about half of his earnings to taxes, he had a net worth of $85 million after the Floyd Mayweather fight.
Between June 2017 and June 2018, Conor also made about $14 million from endorsement deals with companies like Burger King, Beats by Dre, and Anheuser-Busch.
If against all odds, Conor had beaten Mayweather, it would have led to a rematch where Conor could have won another huge sum of money. It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to think that he could have asked for at least half of the money made from a future fight. Theoretically, that would have brought in $200 million to $300 million.
Conor announced on September 20, 2018, that he had signed an 8-fight contract with the UFC. The deal's details haven't been made public, but it's likely to be worth at least $200 million at the very least.
Conor McGregor Retirement?
Conor sent out a mysterious tweet on March 25, 2019, in which he said he was quitting MMA fighting to focus on his new businesses, like his Proper 12 whiskey brand. If he is really done fighting, he will have made about $235 million over the course of his career.
