The fortune of Conor McGregor that surpasses Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and any soccer star

Athletes these days are the main celebrities all around the world. The amounts of money that are paid for image, advertising, promotion and competitions is enormous and it will keep growing as people keep watching sports. This time, is Connor McGregor the man that will earn a lot of money in comparison with these two stars.

With only one fight, the Irish is getting $5 million dollars. He only needs one night to make such a huge amount of money, and that is only on the main contract, because then there are all the advertising and promotions. But, what does it take to Cristiano and Messi to get that money?

Both of the footballers earn less than $5 million dollars each month, and they need to play between 4 and 8 matches to get that. The Juventus player earns a total of $31 million euros per year, and Lionel Messi $26 million per year. Imagine how much McGregor would make if he settles a fight every week.

Cristiano would need two moths to match McGregor earnings from one night.

The difference is enormous, and we are talking about the top footballers, a regular one could not even dream about earning $5 million dollars in one single night. But this is the sports world, if people like you and watch your competition, there is no limit on how much money you can get by playing or fighting.
