Top 30 Highest-Earning UFC Fighters Of All Time Have Been Revealed

Top 30 Highest-Earning UFC Fighters Of All Time Have Been Revealed

Conor McGregor tops the list with the highest UFC career earnings after pocketing $12m across his illustrious MMA fighting career.

The 31-year-old Irish superstar made his sensational MMA return in January with a stunning first-round TKO victory over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246.

The future Hall of Famer, who also received a mega-payday from his crossover fight with Floyd Mayweather, remains the clear frontrunner in career earnings to date.

The 'Notorious' is miles ahead of MMA veteran Alistair Overeem, who placed second with $8.7m career earnings.

Not far behind Overeem is McGregor's rival Khabib Nurmagomedov, who hasn't competed since his victory over Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 in September 2019.

The Athletic Panda compiled the earnings for the top 25 fighters from various sources, but the list doesn't include money made outside of the cage or through 'fight night bonuses.'
