Conor McGregor’s net worth is as big as his personality. The 30-year-old UFC fighter was born in Dublin, Ireland, and was poor most of his life. But those around him saw this intense fight inside him. Everyone knew he wouldn’t be satisfied with living and dying poor in Ireland.
In fact, while he was trying to establish himself as a professional fighter, it was his girlfriend who had to act as his personal chauffeur because he didn’t have a car. He would work 12-hour shifts as an apprentice plumber and then go straight to the gym to train.
To say he worked hard would be an understatement. He eventually had to give up the plumbing to train full time. It was a decision his parents disapproved of. His father and he actually got into a huge fight, which prompted Conor to say, “You’ll be sorry when I’m a millionaire.”
Conor lied to his father that day. He’s not a millionaire. He’s a multi-millionaire. After joining the Ultimate Fighting Championship in 2013, Conor made quite the name for himself.
Not only did he kick butt inside the octagon, but he also created this larger-than-life character, similar to what you’d see in professional wrestling. In 2015, he won the featherweight division title, and then one year later he became a two-division champion by winning the lightweight.
He followed that up by famously challenging Floyd Mayweather Jr. to a boxing match in 2017. Obviously, Conor lost the fight, but the $85 million he made from the fight probably numbed the pain of defeat.
Today, Conor is worth around $100 million, and just like Floyd, he loves flashing his wealth on social media. He better be careful with his riches, though.
2018 was a rough year for him as he was stripped of his titles (due to inactivity) and he was arrested in April of 2018 after throwing a dolly cart inside a bus. His antics injured several fighters who were inside the bus at the time.
He was arrested a second time in March of 2019 on charges of strong-armed robbery and criminal mischief.
He reportedly slapped a phone out of a fan’s hand and then proceeded to walk away with it outside a club in Miami. He was released a few hours later after posting bond.
Has the money turned him into a monster? Possibly. As they say, “mo’ money ‘mo problems.”
