The fighters salaries for Saturday night’s UFC 229 pay-per-view event have been revealed and not surprisingly former “champ champ” Conor McGregor leads the company payroll.

The Irish superstar recently told reporters that he expects to make around $50 million for his UFC 229 fight tomorrow night against current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

However, according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA) will actually pocket a flat $3 million when he squares off with the undefeated Khaib Nurmagomedov (26-0 MMA) tomorrow night in Las Vegas.

According the NSAC’s report, “The Eagle” will take home $2 million win or lose for his efforts.

The bitter rivals, Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov, engaged in an intense staredown at the UFC 229 weigh ins which resulted in a brief scuffle.
