Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone UFC 246 purses and prize money


Conor McGregor claims he will take home £60million from his fight against Donald Cerrone tonight.

The Irishman is back in the UFC after a 15-month hiatus as he looks to make a run at either the lightweight or welterweight titles.

Standing in his way is 50-fight veteran Cerrone who will be looking to upset the odds in Las Vegas.

McGregor is set to earn a £4m fight fee but claims that will be blown out of the water by his earnings from sponsors and his share of the pay-per-view.

Cerrone will be paid around £1.5m plus his ‘extras’.

“It’s going to be a good pay cheque,” McGregor told ESPN. “Probably the most ever in my mixed martial arts career… I’m estimating a good $80m.

“We have Australia, Canada and England and Ireland… it should be a good one.

“[I made] $50m [against Khabib]. They think I’m toast but I’m still the bread.

“I’ll be a billionaire by the time I’m 35.”
