$85 Million for a fight!
He is arguably the UFC’s no.1 star and he has not stepped foot in the ring professionally since November 2016, but Conor McGregor earned his biggest payday to date thanks to a 2017 boxing match with Floyd Mayweather, who is no.1 on our list. McGregor earned an approximate of $85 million for the fight, which is more than quadruple his previous most significant paycheck.
