Conor McGregor has already earned huge amounts of money during his career. Known for his extremely unconventional fighting style, the Irishman has so far won 28 professional fights and suffered only six defeats. Many fans hope that the fighter returning to the UFC after his absence will soon fight Michael Chandler. The president of the federation, Dana White, believes that the fight will be organized.
For many years, McGregor has been trying to multiply his fortune and consciously invest the money he earns. The 35-year-old’s net worth is one of the largest among UFC stars. It is estimated that he generated a profit of $200 million from fights alone during his career. Naturally, this includes revenues from advertising and marketing contracts.
McGregor’s investment resulted in significant losses
Daily Mail journalists recently reported that not all of McGregor’s investments are successful. As it turns out, The pub “The Black Forge”, which the Irishman bought in 2020 for over 1.5 million pounds, regularly makes financial losses of a huge order.
Journalists reported that by the end of 2022 alone, the pub had made a loss of over £2 million. This was due to, among other things, the coronavirus pandemic, which kept the premises partially closed. Despite the unfavorable financial situation, Conor Mcgregor decided to expand his offer. The production of “Forged Irish Stout” beer began there. The brand has already made its debut on the British market.
Fans of the controversial star are wondering when he will return to the Octagon. He hasn’t had a fight since his heavy loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in 2021. During the fight, the Irishman suffered a serious leg injury, which forced him to suspend his professional career.
McGregor’s coach revealed in an interview with “The MMA Hour” when we can expect his return to the octagon.
We hoped it would take place in April. These were the expectations. This is what was agreed with us. Now it looks like it won’t be until next summer

McGregor wanted to return to the octagon during UFC 300. However, everything indicates that we will have to wait for the Irishman’s next fight.
