Conor McGregor is coming off the biggest payday of his career with his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather. Although the current UFC lightweight champion was TKO’d in the 10th round of their fight, McGregor was guaranteed to take home a $30 million fight purse. With the UFC star being a partner in the fight as a promoter, his earnings from the fight will be much more than the $30 million as the Irishman will get a cut of the pay-per-view sales, personal endorsements, and likely some other portions of the revenue generated from the fight. At the end of it all, “The Notorious” is expected to make around $100 million for his dance with Floyd Mayweather.
Given that the UFC champ is swimming in cash, it only seems right for the man to spend some of his earned income. McGregor has acquired some expensive taste with his success in the UFC. Following his massive payday from the Mayweather fight, “The Notorious” has been seen partying in Ibiza as he attended his friend’s wedding. Conor was also seen partying it up in the clubs in Ibiza and most recently has been enjoying some time on a huge yacht.
The reporters from TMZ looked at Conor McGregor’s recent photos from his vacation and some questioned if the UFC star will end up getting caught up in a lifestyle where he will end up spending more than what he is capable of.
Do you think Conor McGregor will learn from the mistakes of other stars who have spent all their fortunes? Or will the UFC star burn up his cash as quickly as it came in? Let’s talk about this one in the comment section.
