Conor McGregor To Receive Record UFC Purse For Comeback Fight Against Donald Cerrone

Conor McGregor is set to receive a record UFC purse of £3.8 million for his comeback fight against Donald Cerrone.

McGregor, 31, hasn't fought since his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018, but he makes his eagerly-awaited UFC return on January 18.

He faces 'Cowboy' and the returning Irishman will make a career high purse of £3.8 million for his Las Vegas showdown.

'The Notorious' is in line to receive a guaranteed record UFC purse, but he'll pocket a lot more through undisclosed pay-per-view points as he is set to earn a portion of the PPV revenue for UFC 246.

McGregor scooped a UFC purse of £2.3 million for his fights against Eddie Alvarez and Nurmagomedov, while taking home around £2.2 million for the Nate Diaz rematch.

"Jan 1st, last heavy spar today before going to Vegas," he wrote in a tweet.

"Can honestly say this is the best I've seen him and I wasn't sure that was possible to do 6 months ago. You guys are in for a real treat, I'm just glad to have a good seat!"

McGregor has also set his sights on the welterweight division, which includes BMF champion Jorge Masvidal and UFC welterweight king Kamaru Usman.
