Conor McGregor is known as a big spender, rolling around in a brand new Rolls-Royce, shopping on Rodeo Drive, and dropping cash on expensive tailor made suits. But this is a new one...
Can you say, designer fight camps?
"With gyms, cars, transport, flights, accommodations -- I'd estimate we're talking a $300,000 camp here," McGregor told ESPN. "This is a big, big expense -- but what I make is big. So, in the bigger picture, it's rather small."
I could buy a house for that amount!
Although, I guess that isn't shocking that McGregor would spare no expense on his training considering how obsessed he was after his loss to Nate Diaz at UFC 196. Plus, he has a bit of money to throw around.
McGregor earned a base salary of $1 million for his UFC 196 appearance, plus a sizable cut of the PPV revenue. Forbes estimates that his final earnings for that event were upwards of $18 million.
Conor McGregor's UFC 202 training camp itself is currently headquartered in a $2.5 million mansion.
We will have to wait until Saturday to see if it's paid off for him or not.
