After becoming the most financially successful mixed martial arts fighter of all time, ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor can now also say he’s one of the top 50 highest-paid athletes of all time.

Sportico has compiled a list of the top 50 highest-paid athletes of all time, which included seven boxers, though Conor McGregor is not surprisingly the only MMA fighter on the list.

Sportico has McGregor ranked at no. 33 on the list with a net worth of $615 million, ahead of boxing legends Evander Holyfield and Canelo Alvarez, as well as Super Bowl champion quarterback Drew Brees.

All of this money of course comes from his fight purses, being the highest-paid UFC athlete of all-time, his pay-per-view, as he’s always competing in main events, and then his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather back in 2017, which he reportedly made over $100 million for that fight alone.

McGregor also had his Proper No. 12 whiskey brand that grossed him $600 million for selling his majority share in the company.

Then there are a few more basketball stars, such as Lebron James at no. 6 ($1.53 billion), Kobe Bryant ($1.05 billion), and Shaq O’Neal ($1.05 billion) sharing the no. 13 spot.

I became a fan of combat sports when I was 12 years old. I was scrolling through the channels and landed upon versus, where WEC was televised. Urijah Faber fought Jens Pulver for the second time that night. That’s the first fight I saw, and the fight that got me hooked on the sport. Since then, the sport has grown so rapidly, and my goal is to enlighten everyone on what’s going on in the sport today.
