McGregor’s Proposal to Purchase Chelsea for £3bn:
Conor McGregor has launched a spectacular bid to purchase Chelsea Football Club via social media. However, someone should encourage the UFC fighter to check his bank account first.
Conor McGregor stunned the athletic world with his announcement of his ambition to purchase Chelsea Football Club – but the numbers may not match up.
On Wednesday afternoon, Notorious, 33, rushed to social media to tweet a screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation with the caption “I wish to explore this. @chelseafc.”

The snapshot was accompanied with a text message exchange regarding the Premier League giants’ acquisition, albeit the message’s receiver is unknown.
McGregor texted, “Let’s purchase Chelsea for £3 billion.”
The Irishman’s net worth, according to Spanish newspaper Marca, is believed to be €170 million (£141 million), substantially less than Roman Abramovich’s £3 billion estimations.
The bulk of his money came from the sale of Proper 12, an Irish whiskey firm that he sold last year for $150 million (£112 million).
McGregor is credited for selling four of the UFC’s top five most popular pay-per-view events, earning between £20 and £25,000 each bout.
Even if he earned the full sum, the Irishman would need to participate in an additional 40 tournaments to earn the £3 billion requested by Abramovich – a feat that would be nearly impossible while serving a six-month medical suspension.
Despite losing to Floyd Mayweather in the ring, he amassed a fortune through his boxing career.
McGregor earned $100 million (£75 million) for defeating ‘Money,’ but he is still far behind in the race to acquire Chelsea.

Conor McGregor’s Most Lucrative UFC Paydays
Conor was granted $5 million for his victory against Chad Mendes at UFC 189 on July 11, 2015. Conor won an estimated $12 million on December 11, 2015, after beating Jose Aldo in 13 seconds. Conor McGregor reportedly earned at least $10 million and maybe as much as $15 million for defeating Nate Diaz at UFC 196 on March 5, 2016.
He supposedly earned $25 million for his rematch with Nate Diaz at UFC 202. He fought Eddie Alvarez in November 2016 and collected $7 million. He was granted an estimated $50 million for his October 2018 meeting with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Approximately $115 million has been generated by the UFC to date (including Khabib’s $50 million payoffs).
Conor McGregor defeated Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in his highly anticipated comeback to the UFC on January 18, 2020. Conor was guaranteed $5 million for the fight, a UFC record at the time. He has claimed in interviews that if pay-per-view sales are strong, the Cerrone fight may generate $80 million in revenue. Cerrone was guaranteed $2 million if he was apprehended.
Conor was beaten by Dustin Poirier on January 23, 2021. Conor was also guaranteed an additional $5 million. Conor’s defeat essentially lost him a substantial future income by putting a halt to a rematch with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Profitability of Floyd Mayweather’s Fight
Conor McGregor made the transition from the MMA cage to the boxing ring on August 26, 2017 when he challenged unbeaten champion Floyd Mayweather. With 4.3 million buys, the match was one of the most profitable pay-per-view events of all time.
Conor earned an estimated $100 million at that level through guarantees, product royalties, concessions, and incentives. Conor’s net worth is $85 million following the Floyd fight, assuming he lost half of his earnings to taxes.
Conor earned around $14 million in endorsements between June 2017 and June 2018 with businesses like as Burger King, Beats by Dre, and Anheuser-Busch.
If Conor had defeated Mayweather (against all odds), there would have been a rematch, with Conor potentially earning another enormous paycheck. It is not implausible that he would expect at least half of the profits from a future fight. A payout of between $200 million and $300 million would have resulted.
Conor McGregor stated on September 20, 2018 that he has signed an eight-fight contract with the UFC. The specifics of the agreement were not disclosed, but it is estimated to be valued at the very least $200 million.
Conor McGregor announced his retirement from mixed martial arts competition in a cryptic tweet on March 25, 2019, in order to devote his full attention to his new business interests, notably his Proper 12 whiskey line. If he does truly retire from boxing, he will have earned more than $235 million in his career.
