The first UFC double division Conor McGregor has had a fall from grace in his last couple of fights. Despite having a stellar career, the Irishman hasn’t been able to register a win in his last two fights. Moreover, the Irishman has only won once in his last three fights. Despite such an alarming recent track record, the Irishman remains a top earner in the sport. Let’s take a deeper dive into how much money Conor McGregor made from his losses.

Since 2015, his appearances have set the record for the top five, highest-selling pay-per-views in UFC history. Accordingly, he has been compensated a significant fee in comparison to his peers, who have been actively campaigning for enhanced fighter pay.

In 2017, when he fought Floyd Mayweather, McGregor created a gulf between himself and his colleagues. This begs the question, how much did he make in his losses?

Conor McGregor payout: Irishman’s earning in losses

The first loss of Conor McGregor in his UFC career was against Nate Diaz. During the iconic bout at UFC 196, the Irishman earned $3,482,500. ‘The Notorious’ would eventually manage to avenge his loss by defeating the ‘Stockton Slapper’ in their rematch.

The Irishman’s second loss would come through the hands of the undefeated Dagestani, Khabib Nurmagomedov. However, that loss would be the most lucrative fight, ‘Mystic Mac’ would be a part of, earning $28,480,000, according to a report from MMA Salaries.

However, the biggest payday of McGregor came from his boxing debut, a defeat from Floyd Mayweather. After the last 10 rounds against one of the greatest boxers of all time, the Irishman made around $100 million.
