“The Notorious” Conor McGregor made a UFC record high $3 million dollars in disclosed pay for his fight with Nate Diaz at UFC 202. Diaz was not far behind, getting a disclosed amount of $2 million.

The record for highest disclosed pay was set a little over a month prior to their event at UFC 200, with Brock Lesnar making $2.5 million for his highly controversial return to the Octagon

While the two UFC stars made more with pay-per-view shares, with one report estimating that McGregor made near $15 million and Diaz $13 million, fellow UFC fighters reacted to the record setting disclosed pay for “The Notorious.”

Check out what veteran fighters like Carlos Condit, Joe Lauzon, and Anthony Pettis had to say about the big payday for Conor McGregor in the video above.
