When it comes to battling in the UFC, Conor McGregor is the man to beat. His skills in the octagon — and in the ring with Floyd Mayweather in 2017 — have landed him millions of dollars.
In one year alone — between June 2016 and June 2017 — he brought in $99 million, $85 million of which came from his now historic boxing match against Mayweather, Forbes reported. His story is more of a rags-to-riches tale, though. Before he found success with mixed martial arts, or MMA, he was a plumber’s apprentice practicing in Dublin.
Now, his social media is filled with pictures of him and his family enjoying a luxurious lifestyle filled with gold watches, yachts, and designer clothes. Take a closer look at how he spends his millions.
Before he became the famous big-talking figure he is today, McGregor was a plumber’s apprentice in Dublin. He eventually made the choice to train full time and fight on the European MMA circuit before turning to the UFC in 2012.
