UFC 202: Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz 2

Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz are sitting on a very good amount of money following their UFC 202 rematch.

McGregor set the UFC record for the highest disclosed pay earning $3 million and Diaz upped his pay in the rematch earning $2 million.

On top of their disclosed pay, Yahoo backed up Big Brand Boys report that the two UFC stars are making a lot more from pay-per-view points and sponsorships.

From Big Brand Boys:

Conor McGregor Total UFC 202 Estimated Pay

Fight purse: $3 million.

Reebok Sponsorship money: $250.000.

PPV Share: $11.5 million.

Fight of the night bonus: $50.000.

Show money for his Vegas afterparty: $250.000 estimated.

Nate Diaz Total UFC 202 Estimated Pay

Fight purse: $2 million.

Reebok Sponsorship money: $250.000.

PPV Share: $10.5 million.

Fight of the night bonus: $50.000.

Show money for his Vegas afterparty: $150.000 estimated.

According to the report, Diaz did not earn a share of pay-per-view sales from UFC 196 but played his cards right in the negotiations with the UFC for the rematch.

Crazy to see where Nate Diaz is at now as prior to the first fight with McGregor at UFC 196, Nate earned $40,000 in disclosed pay for his fight with Michael Johnson.
