Conor McGregor has earned a staggering amount of money after selling his shares in the Proper 12 Whiskey brand, which he launched only three years ago.
The UFC superstar’s manager Audi Attar revealed that McGregor earned a jaw-dropping $155 million after off-loading his shares to Mexican company Becle recently.
McGregor had brought Proper 12 whiskey to market at a time when his fame was at it’s peak following a blockbuster boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr in 2018 that had also netted him in the region of $100 million.
The drink became an instant-hit and it had long been rumored that McGregor was making serious money from the venture, but until now no one knew just how successful the brand had become.
In total McGregor is now believed to be worth over $300 million, an amount that is light years beyond anything that any other fighter in the UFC has ever achieved before, making him one of the richest sportsmen in the world.
The only other man in the promotion that can compete with his bank balance now is the UFC’s own president Dana White, who was reported to have earned around $400 million when the company was sold to Endeavor back in 2016, with his overall net worth these days rumored to be in the region of $500 million.
