UFC 246 Salaries: Conor McGregor Leads The Way Following Huge Comeback

Conor McGregor walked away from UFC 246 having made a cool $3,050,000 following his victory over Donald Cerrone on Saturday night.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission have released the event's full salaries and it's safe to say the 'Notorious' leads the way.

Per The Mac Life, the 31-year-old made $3 million for the fight itself as well as $50,000 for a performance related bonus.

McGregor fought for the first time in 15 months and knocked 'Cowboy' out inside the first 40 seconds.

Cerrone on the other hand will take home roughly $200,000, the same amount as co-main event winner Holly Holm following her win against Raquel Pennington.

Check out the full list below:

New York State Athletic Commission doesn't release fighter pay info, so none of the disclosed purses for the event is official.

Other information such as discretionary bonuses, pay-per-view revenue and sponsorship deals outside of the UFC are not included in the breakdown.

Attention will now turn to McGregor's next fight in the Octagon, which is rumoured to be against names such as Jorge Masvidal, Justin Gaethje and Nate Diaz.
