From Crumlin to Cage Warriors: The Formative Journey of Conor McGregor

Conor Anthony McGregor was born to Tony and Mags McGregor on July 14, 1988, living it up with his two sisters, Erin and Aoife, in the Dublin suburbs of Crumlin, Ireland. Always the sporty type, baby McGregor kicked off his love for the game at only 12. Not with MMA though, but with soccer. He was part of the local Lourdes Celtic Football Club. Around the same time, he started throwing punches at the Crumlin Boxing Club.

After high school, and intent on living a life away from the books, Conor entered the working world as a plumber. The long days and grueling hours didn’t drain Conor of his energy, however; when the whistle blew, he headed to the gym and trained. Before long, Conor called it quits on the “pipe” dream to chase his real one: full-time MMA fighting.

His first taste of the MMA spotlight came on March 8, 2008, trading blows with the best of them in Cage Warriors. He made his mark with a stunning victory over Gary Morris, dropping him in the second round. After numerous knockouts featuring lots of blood and sweat, Conor snagged both the CWFC Lightweight Championship and the CWFC Featherweight Championship belts—a double whammy that catapulted him straight into the UFC.

Everyone had their eyes glued to the newcomer on April 6, 2013, when Conor made his powerful entry into the big league. Going toe to toe with Marcus Brimage, Conor did what Conor does best. He dominated the ring, won by knockout, and introduced the world to a new UFC era, christened “The Notorious”.

Knocking Out Wealth: Conor McGregor’s Earnings from his Fights

Conor’s not just an ace in the ring, he’s got a sizzling persona that’s made him a big shot in the UFC world. As a result, he’s been boasting some of the largest pay-per-view numbers in UFC history. On a regular day, Conor pockets between $18 million and $22 million a fight, and that’s not even counting the extra dough for standout performances.

As for his 2017 mega-fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr., McGregor scored $85 million—far more than he could ever make through his traditional MMA fights. With around 4.3 million pay-per-view buys in the U.S., it’s not hard to see why his bank balance skyrocketed.

When McGregor faced off against Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone at UFC 246, he raked in more than $30 million. This was from pay-per-view revenue and sponsor checks, mind you. This helped him bag his $32 million salary in 2020, as dished out by Forbes. He then supplemented this with an extra $16 million from endorsement deals that same year.

Let’s chat about his recent fights with Dustin Poirier in 2021. These matches were money, pure and simple. The first brought McGregor an estimated $22 million, but the July rematch knocked that out of the park with $33 million. These two helped stack up his net worth considerably.

Diversifying Wealth: McGregor’s Earnings Outside the Octagon

When Conor McGregor isn’t serving knockouts in the UFC, he occupies his time raking in cash from ventures outside the fighting world. Some might be surprised to learn that he is a savvy business tycoon. From his own Irish whiskey to a full-on clothing line, McGregor’s smart use of his fame has padded his bank account far beyond his fight-night paychecks.

Let’s start with his whiskey, Proper No. Twelve. Launched in 2018, it was such a hit that the initial batch sold out in less than two weeks, and they were gearing up to sell over 200,000 cases in the first year alone. This whiskey got so popular that McGregor ended up selling a majority share to Proximo Spirits in a $600-million deal.

But he didn’t stop at whiskey. McGregor linked up with top-notch tailor David August and created the “August McGregor” clothing line. Conor even designs the modern suits himself. We can’t say for sure how much dough this line brings in, but it’s no doubt adding a good deal to McGregor’s wealth.

Let’s not forget the endorsement deals. McGregor’s partnerships with brands like Reebok, Beats By Dre, Monster Energy, and even Burger King have not only pumped up his wallet but put his face everywhere.

And do you know about “The Mac Life”? McGregor owns this mixed martial arts website that serves up news, fitness tips, lifestyle advice, and much more. Even without exact profit numbers, these various investments are clearly bringing hefty streams of income into McGregor’s corner.

Living Large: McGregor’s Extravagant Assets and Charity Endeavors

When it comes to burning dough, real estate seems to be Conor’s go-to. Back in his own backyard in Ireland, he dropped a $2.4 million on a mansion in 2019. Nestled in the Paddocks near Straffan, Co Kildare, the property contains five bedrooms, six bathrooms and numerous lavish features. When he wants to get away, he has at his disposal a £1.6-million holiday retreat in sunny Marbella, complete with a custom gym, home spa, pool, and an epic ocean-facing dining space. 

Meanwhile, Conor has got a killer fleet of high-speed beauties to get him around quickly and stylishly. Just to name a few, he’s got two Lamborghini Aventadors, four Rolls-Royces, a Cadillac Escalade, a BMW i8, a McLaren 650S, a Mercedes-AMG S550 Coupe, and two Range Rovers.

Adding to his line-up of ultra-slick rides is an array of seafaring mega-yachts. A $3.6-million yacht inspired by the one and only Muhammad Ali is just one of them. Another one’s a Lamborghini sports yacht, now dubbed as the “supercar of the sea.”

But it’s not all swanky stuff. McGregor also makes sure to share the love with charity work. Among his good deeds is a hefty donation to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Dublin. During a philanthropic event in NYC that featured McGregor, around $800,000 was raised, with a big chunk donated to the hospital to help boost their facilities. He’s also pitched in $500,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Acadiana in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Behind the Scenes: Knowing Conor McGregor Personally

Conor’s love life involves one woman: Dee Devlin. She stole his heart when he was just 19, and since then, they’ve become proud parents to three adorable kids: Conor Jr, Croia, and Rian. McGregor’s Instagram is brimming with snaps of his little clan, often joining him for his training regimen.

When it comes to friendships, Conor’s got a seriously tight crew. One pal who stands out is Artem Lobov, Conor’s training buddy and go-to guy for all things life- and fight-related. Their friendship has survived the rough and tumble, and it’s grabbed some headlines too.

One thing you’ve got to respect about Conor, he knows how to switch it up. Take Nate Diaz for example – despite their face-offs in the ring, you’d catch them chilling together off the circuit. While McGregor’s on-screen and in-ring persona can be intense, he seems an easygoing guy when the cameras stop rolling.

Confronting the Storm: McGregor’s Battles Beyond the Ring

In 2018, Conor McGregor was getting loads of attention, but not for his fights. In a fit of rage against Khabib Nurmagomedov, another UFC heavyweight, Conor reached for a steel dolly and chucked it at a bus full of UFC fighters in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Two fighters got injured, and McGregor earned himself quite a bit of flak for this outburst. He was also penalized with three counts of assault and one of criminal mischief. Lucky for him, a guilty plea to disorderly conduct meant no time in jail.

Then came 2019, with more drama unfolding in Ireland. A woman took him to court, claiming McGregor had raped her in a hotel penthouse. After over a year of investigations, Irish police and the prosecution decided not to press any criminal charges against him. Nevertheless, the woman’s keeping up her fight, with a lawsuit that’s still up in the air and could end up in court if nothing is settled.
