UFC's Top Ten Highest Career Earners Have Been Revealed

He's significantly higher than second place Alistair Overeem who doesn't break the $10 million mark.

McGregor's rival Khabib Nurmagomedov is third place with $8,680,200 which comes as no surprise considering his dominance since debuting.

Other big names on the list include Jon Jones, Georges St-Pierre and Daniel Cormier.

Interestingly, Donald Cerrone also features on the list in ninth place.

The veteran has been in the UFC for nearly ten years and has become a staple in the promotion.

He'll be facing off with McGregor when 'Notorious' returns on January 18 at UFC 246.

McGregor's coach John Kavanagh took to Twitter yesterday to offer an insight into his training.

The 42-year-old claimed that fans are "in for a real treat" when McGregor takes to the octagon at the T-Mobile Arena.

He tweeted: "Jan 1st, last heavy spar today before going to Vegas.

"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!"

The Irish superstar has his eyes set on facing BMF champ Jorge Masvidal on route to a blockbuster rematch with Khabib before the end of the year.

However, UFC president Dana White has warned McGregor about the idea of fighting 'Gamebred' after the Cerrone clash.

Conor has this idea, too, that if things don't go his way and he [doesn't] get the fight [with Khabib], he'll have had a 170 fight in his pocket again and [is] considering a [Jorge] Masvidal fight," he told MMA Fighting.

"I think everybody knows what I think about it. I think it's a bad idea."
