& # 39; I saw the highlights. How incredible is Tyson's jaw? & # 39;

Conor McGregor receives his largest EVER UFC combat bag on his return against Donald Cerrone but it is only £ 3.8 million … after earning an incredible £ 76 million for fighting Floyd Mayweather
- Conor McGregor is set to make a guaranteed £ 3.8 million on his return.
- The Irishman will face American veteran Donald Cerrone on Saturday UFC 246
- The figure would show him the basic salary he earned in his last fight
- That cam in October 2018 in defeat against the Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov
Conor McGregor is in line with his highest UFC wallet to receive for his return to the octagon against Donald Cerrone, but still pales in comparison to the huge payday he received for fighting Floyd Mayweather in 2017.
McGregor & # 39; s comeback this month will return to him for the first time since he lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov in October 2018.
And that is the opportunity for the game against American veteran Cerrone on UFC 246 next Saturday that the 31 -year-old is set to receive a £ 3.8 million guaranteed wallet for the non-title fight.
But in August 2017, verdie He won an incredible £ 76 million for his super fight with Mayweather in Las Vegas.
The interest in his comeback to the Octagon has been demonstrated by ticket sales, where the fight was sold out almost immediately and Dana White confirmed at £ 7.6m gate.
The base salary number would see current record holder McGregor comfortably obscures the amounts he was paid for his fights against Nurmagomedov and Eddie Alvarez, who brought the Irish around £ 2.3 million.
McGregor was also guaranteed around £ 2.2 million for the Nate Diaz rematch on UFC 202 in August 2016.
But the combat wallet is not a fixed amount for what McGregor will earn with the former two-way champion who starts earning his millions as soon as the pay-per-view figures are dramatically registered change his income.
His last fight against Nurmagomedov broke the UFC record with 2.4 million PPVs sold.
It is claimed that McGregor could therefore have earned more than £ 25 million for his loss to the Russian with 90 percent of the money generated by the PPV purchases.
A large part of the 31-year-old's wealth also comes through sponsorship and approval. , such as the $ 5 million (£ 3.8 million) paid to him by Reebok.
It is therefore not so surprising that Forbes predicted that the Irish would have earned £ 35 million between 2018-19, despite only a lonely fight against Nurmagomedov, meaning he would have around £ 10 million earned through sponsorships and endorsements.
Supreme UFC Dana White unveils US rapper 50 CENT was responsible for Conor McGregor's huge boxing crossover bout with Floyd Mayweather

Instead, White & # 39; s chance encounter with the legendary American rapper 50 Cent who set the ball in motion.
[1 9459018] & # 39; I felt the demand for McGregor vs Mayweather, f Elt it, I knew it would be great, so we started talking, & # 39; told White ESPN . & # 39; I came across 50 Cent in New York and he said: & # 39; Floyd wants to fight your boy. & # 39; I said, "My boy who?"
He is like: "The Irish child." And I kind of like, "He'll kill him," because I'm thinking of MMA. He said, "We'll pack it." I said, "You're crazy."
& # 39; He said, "He means it. I'll call him right now." And that's how it all started. And everywhere I went, it was everything someone asked me about.
& # 39; Once I really started to feel it, I started taking it seriously and I made an offer.
Mayweather officially retired after the match with McGregor, but has since returned at the end of 2018 for a practice fight with the Japanese kick boxer Tenshin Nasukawa.
& # 39; AJ & # 39; danced his way to a dominant win over a sub-pair Ruiz on Saturday night, and took back the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO that the Mexican stole spent a shock knockout victory in June.
Joshua made dramatic changes to his style for the rematch, appeared 10 pounds leaner and fought a much more measured, agile fight. Meanwhile, Ruiz showed the effects of a summer that celebrated his last victory – admitting that he was overweight and unsuitable.
Wilder was disgusted by & # 39; The Destroyer & # 39 ;, after praising the Mexican for beating Joshua in the first fight.
& # 39; Ruiz said it was okay with he went, not let him come this moment & # 39 ;, the bronze bomber said to the Athletic. & # 39; But in the end you hear him say that he is too much and that he should have trained harder … Like, what
& # 39; What do you mean too much and could have trained harder?
& # 39; I take this s *** seriously. I don't know what their mentality is , but I didn't become a world champion to say, "Put me in the books." At least I can say I was a champion. They can never take that away from me.
& # 39; F *** that is ***. I'm here for inheritance. Long live the king. That is my mentality, and America should love a world champion like me. & # 39;
Victory is said to have put Joshua on the right track again for a super fight with the other members of the & # 39; big three & # 39; from the heavyweight division, Wilder and Tyson Fury.
Promoter Eddie Hearn was grilled in the ring after the fight where the Watford-born hunter would go next.
Ruiz and Joshua seemed to agree to combat the trilogy in the aftermath, but it is hard to imagine that the pair will get the same attention after the performance of Ruiz.
There is a serious threat that fight fans, however, will not see the attacks that should determine the era.
& # 39; Gypsy King & # 39; Fury has stated that he only wants three fights before he finds new challenges in the UFC and WWE – while WBC champion Wilder has now revealed that he sees no fight with Joshua to unite the division.
& I don't think we will ever see a unification & # 39 ;, said the American. "We will never see it, and I don't want people to get their hope for it, because it will never happen.
" They couldn't say anything about fighting with me. They couldn't name my name. They went around me
I am too dangerous. You have seen what I do in the ring. I don't play anything.
& # 39; And they know if Ruiz can get Joshua out of there, imagine. That's why they stayed away from me. & # 39;
Wilder will fight Tyson Fury on February 22, a rematch of their iconic draw 12 months ago.
Joshua is determined to unite the division, and a Wilder victory should put everything in its place. Wilder believes, however, that the struggle in Saudi Arabia was further proof of his superiority.
& # 39; How can we not say that I am not the best in the world now? & # 39;
Wilder criticized the Watford-born hunter for his "beautiful" tactics
& # 39; Fans come to knockouts. They come to see something dramatic, a body lying on the canvas, scattered as if it pleases. That is my mentality.
& Joshua was so hesitant … his mentality was to survive. He ran around the ring and sat on his bike all day. The Klitschko method.
& You want to dominate men, man. Maybe I'm just too rough, too hard and too much of a dream for this time and age, maybe the world wants that beautiful ***.
& # 39; The difference is my mentality is that of a beast, a warrior, a king, an emperor, all those things.
& # 39; If he calls himself a king, he is just nicer side of it. This is a cheeky sport and that's how I treat it. I show no love for someone in that ring. & # 39;

After the game, it was talked about who the 30-year-old should turn to as a potential match.
Sky Sports analyst and former boxer Carl Froch said the Brit should focus on the undefeated Wilder.
& # 39; Wilder must be worried. He (Joshua) will feel like a king after that victory & # 39;
He added: & # 39; Wilder must be the goal. Within the next two or three battles, he must unite the straps and then what he still has to do.
& # 39; You must give AJ the best heavyweights in the world – in the top three – and you cannot place him as the best because he has not been tested against the other two.
The comments come despite Anthony Joshua agreeing with Andy Ruiz for calling a third decisive match between the pair.
However, potential attacks with Fury and Wilder are competitions for which the boxing world has been around for much longer.
Wilder has talked about a match in the past, but a fight has yet to be agreed.
Wilder, who has won 42 of the 43 knockout fights, also recently won a big win after beating Luis Ortiz in his own rematch last month.
