UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor was the only MMA fighter to rank in the Forbes list of top 100 highest paid athletes in the last 12 months.

While other combat athletes made the list such as Manny Pacquiao, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Canelo Alvarez, “The Notorious” stands out as the only MMA fighter.

With the Forbes list released this week, McGregor took to Instagram to react to the news. “The Notorious” re-posted a photo from his girlfriend Dee Devlin and captioned his post, “Made the Forbes 100 today.
Still in the hood. #Dublin12.”

McGregor proudly represents his hometown in Dublin, Ireland, which is a big reason his fans in Ireland have gravitated toward him and the sport of mixed martial arts.

Conor McGregor is set to rematch Nate Diaz in a non-title welterweight bout at UFC 202 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
