Both the Mayweather Vs McGregor event’s official salaries and medical suspension reports have been released and you can check them out below.
As had previously been reported, Floyd Mayweather’s guaranteed fight purse for the fight was $100 million, while Conor McGregor banked $30 million, but both men can look forward to earning far more on the back end due to having a cut of the pay-per-view revenue, in addition to lucrative sponsorship and merchandise deals. If all goes well, McGregor expects to earn in the region of $100 million overall.
The next best paid star on the night was Badou Jack, and he was worth every penny of his $750,000 payday after a viruoso performance on the night, while even though he was stripped of his title for missing weight, Gervonta Davis still trousered $600,000 for his victory in the co-main event.
Outside of the main event the salaries were within the range we’ve become accustomed to seeing in the UFC, with a number of fighters on the main card earning in the $100,000 region, while defeated co-main event fighter Francisco Fonseca only took home $35,000.
As for the prelim card participants, the salaries there went as low as $3,500 for the event opener Sydney LeBlanc, and that’s lower than the UFC pays out these days, with $10,000 being the floor for fighting in the Octagon.

As for the medical suspensions, due to his tenth round TKO loss, McGregor was handed a two month suspension but didn’t appear to have sustained any kind of notable injury that might hamper a return to the UFC, while Mayweather escaped without any time on the sidelines – though that would be an irrelevance now given that he’s headed into retirement.
