Conor McGregor made more than everyone else on the UFC 246 card combined

If you go by the officially released base salaries for all the fighters at UFC 246, it’s obvious that one man is getting the lion’s share of the cash. Conor McGregor’s $3 million dollar salary is actually more than everyone else on the card made - combined. That’s quite astounding when you think about it.

While he might have PPV points or other bonuses coming his way, Donald Cerrone’s main card salary was just $200,000, with no win bonus even if he had have emerged victorious. Meanwhile, Holly Holm’s less-than-exciting decision win over Raquel Pennington insured that, with her win bonus, she actually ended up making the same as Cerrone. At least on paper.
