Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Jon Jones And Nate Diaz’s UFC Salaries Revealed

Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov, Jon Jones And Nate Diaz’s UFC Salaries Revealed

Conor McGregor's last three UFC fights place him ahead of MMA stars Khabib Nurmagomedov, Nate Diaz and Jon Jones on the pay scale.

The 31-year-old Irish MMA superstar has been out of the octagon since he suffered a brutal defeat at the hands of UFC lightweight champ Khabib in 2018.

According to the Daily Express, McGregor remains top of the pay scale in UFC and his last three fights have earned him over £2m each time he stepped into the octagon.

The 31-year-old Russian star has seen his pay package receive a hefty increase since his 2018 clash with Al Iaquinta, which only earned him £405,405.

The Express said that the breakdown of the earnings are based on each fighter's 'disclosed fight purses' and 'all of which would've been topped up by their respective cuts of pay-per-view points.'

And it's worth remembering that the earnings were posted before Diaz's defeat to Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244 on Saturday.
