Conor McGregor doesn’t even have to beat Nate Diaz on Saturday night to earn the biggest fight purse in UFC history. He just has to show up.
McGregor is set to take home a disclosed fight purse of $3 million at UFC 202, while Diaz trails at $2 million, according to information released by the Nevada Athletic Commission.
To put those two purses into perspective, McGregor broke the record at UFC 196 when he took home the first $1 million fight purse in UFC history. Brock Lesnar later set a new record at UFC 200 when he took home $2.5 million.
Many times fighters also get extra bonuses if they win their fight, but that won’t be the case for McGregor or Diaz.
Still, as MMAFighting.com points out, McGregor expects to make over $10 million for this fight when all is said and done.
