McGregor’s his Proposal to buy Chelsea’s Club for £3billion:

Conor McGregor has launched a spectacular bid to purchase Chelsea Football Club, which he has publicized on social media. But someone should urge the UFC fighter to check his bank account first.

Conor McGregor has stunned the athletic world by announcing his ambition to purchase Chelsea Football Club – however, the numbers may not line up.

On Wednesday afternoon, Notorious, 33, resorted to social media to upload a snapshot of a WhatsApp conversation with the caption “I desire to investigate this. @chelseafc.”

The photograph was accompanied by an exchange of texts on the purchase of the Premier League giants, albeit the receiver of the messages remains unknown.

“Chelsea for £3 billion,” McGregor texted, “let’s buy it.”

However, with an estimated net worth of €170 million (£141 million), according to Spanish publication Marca, the Irishman falls far short of Roman Abramovich’s £3 billion appraisals.

The majority of his fortune came from the sale of the Irish whiskey business Proper 12, which he sold last year for $150 million (£112 million).

McGregor is well-known for selling four of the top five highest-selling pay-per-view events in UFC history, earning him between £20 and £25 million each bout.

Even if he received the high end of this sum, the Irishman would have to go through another 40 tournaments to earn the £3 billion Abramovich is seeking – something that would be very difficult to achieve while serving a six-month medical suspension.

Despite losing to Floyd Mayweather in the ring, his foray into boxing netted him a fortune.

McGregor pocketed $100 million (£75 million) from the fight purse against ‘Money,’ but he is still far behind in the race to purchase Chelsea.

Early Life:

Conor Anthony McGregor was born in Crumlin, Ireland on July 14, 1988. He excelled in sports as a youngster, particularly soccer, but at the age of 12, he began training at a boxing club. Conor began his plumbing apprenticeship in 2006 when he was 17 years old. Fighter Tom Egan introduced him to the sport of UFC when he was working at this employment. Egan and McGregor began training together shortly after.

McGregor began his training in boxing before moving on to SBG Ireland to train with John Kavanagh, the first Irish person to obtain a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and his squad. Prior to fighting in professional MMA, he also trained in Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Capoeira, and Kickboxing.

Social Media and Body Measurements

Conor McGregor stands 5 feet 9 inches (175 cm) tall. The MMA fighter is listed as weighing 155 pounds, or 70 kilograms. Conor stands 42.5-23.3-16 inches tall, according to his measurements. Conor’s look includes the same color hair and brown eyes.

Conor McGregor joined Twitter in September 2011, and this is the first time you’ve heard of him in the social media realm. Conor has 8,8 million followers on the Notorious MMA Instagram account as of July 2021. Conor may also be found on Instagram, where he goes by the handle @thenotoriousmma and has a following of over 41.3 million people.

Conor also regularly appears on Instagram using his wife’s identity, @deedevlin1. The author boasts a following of 1.8 million people on this account while writing this biography. Similarly, the MMA fighter’s Facebook profile has almost 14 million followers.

UFC

Conor made his amateur MMA debut at the age of 18 a year later. In his debut, he won by TKO in the first round. Conor was on welfare in Ireland just a few weeks before his MMA debut, receiving $235 a week in government support checks.

The UFC announced in February 2013 that they had signed McGregor to a multi-fight contract. He was the company’s second boxer from the Republic of Ireland at the time, following welterweight Tom Egan. McGregor made his UFC debut on April 6, 2013, against Marcus Brimage, and won his first fight via TKO just over a minute into the first round. McGregor also received his first Knockout of the Night award as a result of his victory.

McGregor is a wide-stance striker who has also effectively created a variety of other combat styles in order to excel and advance to the top ten. His rapid straight arm left jab, according to some, is his most effective technique. McGregor has had an incredible climb for a foreign-born UFC fighter.

Conor McGregor’s Biggest UFC Paydays

Conor got $5 million after he fought Chad Mendes at UFC 189 on July 11, 2015. Conor won a projected $12 million after beating Jose Aldo in 13 seconds on December 11, 2015. Conor McGregor allegedly received a least of $10 million, and maybe as much as $15 million, when he defeated Nate Diaz at UFC 196 on March 5, 2016. When he faced Nate Diaz again at UFC 202, he supposedly got $25 million. In November 2016, he won roughly $7 million facing Eddie Alvarez. In October 2018, he won an estimated $50 million after his bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Total UFC earnings to date: about $115 million (including Khabib’s $50 million payoffs).

Conor McGregor defeated Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in his much-anticipated comeback to the UFC on January 18, 2020. Conor was guaranteed $5 million for the fight, a UFC record at the time. In interviews, he has hinted that if Pay Per View sales are strong, his revenues from the Cerrone bout may reach $80 million. Cerrone was promised $2 million if he showed up.

Conor was defeated by Dustin Poirier on January 23, 2021. Conor was guaranteed $5 million once more. Conor’s defeat effectively lost him a large future salary by putting an end to another bout versus Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Earnings from Floyd Mayweather’s Fight

Conor McGregor made the transition from the MMA cage to the boxing ring on August 26, 2017, as he squared off against unbeaten champion Floyd Mayweather. With 4.3 million buys, the bout was one of the most profitable PPV events of all time. Conor earned an estimated $100 million at that level in guarantees, product royalties, concessions, and incentives. If you believe Conor lost about half of his profits to taxes, $100 million in gross earnings leaves him with a net value of $85 million following the Floyd fight.

Conor also made around $14 million via sponsorships with brands like as Burger King, Beats by Dre, and Anheuser-Busch between June 2017 and June 2018.

If Conor had defeated Mayweather (against all odds), it would have set up a rematch in which Conor might have earned another unbelievably big paycheck. It’s not unreasonable to believe that he might have demanded at least half of the income from a future battle. That would have resulted in a payout of $200-$300 million.

Conor McGregor stated on September 20, 2018, that he has signed an eight-fight contract with the UFC. The specifics of the agreement were not disclosed, although it is probable that it is worth at least $200 million on the low end.

Retirement?

Conor McGregor announced his retirement from MMA combat in a cryptic tweet on March 25, 2019, in order to focus solely on his new business pursuits, such as his Proper 12 whiskey line. If he genuinely quits from fighting, he will have earned around $235 million in total career earnings.
