Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone to earn the biggest purses in their UFC career
The name of Irish UFC superstar Conor McGregor (21-4) is considered one of the biggest in mixed martial arts, so we shouldn’t be surprised that any of his fight becomes a money machine. “The Notorious” is about to headline the UFC 246 with the main event against vet Donald Cerrone (36-13, 1 NC).
Yesterday, purses for headliners were reported. Both fighters will earn the biggest purses in their UFC career: McGregor will get $5 million while Cerrone - $2 million.
By the way, in his previous fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov Conor McGregor earned a little less than three million dollars while Cerrone took home $195,000 for his lost fight against Justin Gaethje.
UFC 246 will take place at the T-Mobile arena in Las-Vegas on January 18.
