Less than a year after being fined $50,000 for his part in the violent aftermath of his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov, Conor McGregor has been handed the sum in cash from Dana White as a reward for his UFC win over Donald Cerrone.
McGregor was chuckling all the way to the bank with a $3 million purse from his brutal victory at UFC 246, which the former featherweight and lightweight champion claimed would rise to around $80 million with his share of pay-per-view payments and lucrative endorsements.
The Irishman shared photos of himself and White laughing uproariously as the UFC boss produced the wad of money from a backpack as McGregor’s bonus for producing one of the performances of the night in Las Vegas.
As usual, McGregor used the occasion to promote his Proper No. Twelve whiskey, which was on the table in the bar he sat in with White ahead of National Irish Coffee Day, a calendar date, for those who were unaware, that falls this Saturday.
