Despite being out of action for over a year, McGregor claims he’ll earn $80m from the fight. 

“It’s going to be a good pay cheque,” he told ESPN. “Probably the most ever in my mixed martial arts career… I’m estimating a good $80m [£62m].

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

When asked how much money he made in his defeat against Khabib Nurmagomedov, McGregor said: “$50m [£38m]. They think I’m toast but I’m still the bread.

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