The outspoken Irishman has gone on record to let fans and likely the heads of the UFC know the worth of one Conor McGregor.

“The Notorious” posted a photo to Instagram with the caption, “Leaving Ireland today for the West Coast. To unify my belt and spearhead the unprecedented $90-100million dollar UFC 194 event. This event along with UFC 189 putting me at close to $200million dollars in revenue generated for this company. All in less than 6months. I am not a company man. I am the company.”


Leaving Ireland today for the West Coast. To unify my belt and spearhead the unprecedented $90-100million dollar UFC 194 event. This event along with UFC 189 putting me at close to $200million dollars in revenue generated for this company. All in less than 6months. I am not a company man. I am the company.

Perhaps this is a play on McGregor’s part in his negotiations with the UFC, where he stated that he would be campaigning for a contract worth over $100 million. With one of the UFC’s biggest stars in Ronda Rousey falling to defeat recently at UFC 193, the Irish lad has an even stronger case, if he can find success at UFC 194 against champion Jose Aldo.

With McGregor’s high fighting IQ, the Notorious one also looks to possess some serious business acumen as well.

Do you think McGregor will find success against Aldo in December and be able to negotiate his contract to the numbers he is talking? Let us know what you think in the comment section!
