Weep not for the Irishman and the American who gave their heart, soul and blood to the Octagon this past weekend, because good Lord did they make some bank.
Previously, it was revealed that Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz’s base pay for their UFC 202 rematch was a cool $3 million and $2 million, respectively. But BigBrandBoys crunched the additional numbers, and, well, McGregor and Diaz did pretty damn well for themselves.
Conor McGregor has made an estimated $15 million for his performance tonight at UFC 202. This number includes his fight purse, PPV points, reebok sponsorship money and his performance of the night bonus. We’ll break down the full numbers down below. McGregor won his much-anticipated rematch against Nate Diaz by a Majority Decision tonight. Nate Diaz, however, has nothing to be bummed out about as he took home an estimated $13 million tonight in total. He took home $40,000 for his fight against Michael Johnson last December which shows that 2016 has been a very good year for Nathan.
Yeah, these guys still deserved every penny.
