The kicker? The luxury watch owned by Conor McGregor costs around $1 million.

Conor McGregor’s rags-to-riches journey has indeed been one of the most inspiring stories in all of the professional sports. He went from relying on welfare checks in his early years in Dublin, Ireland to having a $48 million net worth in 2021.
That number will certainly grow larger since Conor McGregor is expected to rake in a huge amount after Saturday’s card. The Notorious is set to make significantly more than his opponent Dustin Poirier, despite getting knocked out in the second round of their main event bout.
After starting out strong against The Diamond, the Irish striker visibly slowed down at the beginning of the second round. Poirier capitalized on this, as he moved forward constantly and put pressure on the former two-division champion. Conor McGregor found himself hitting the canvass after taking a strong right-hand from Poirier. Referee Heb Dean mercifully saved him at the 2:32 mark of the second round.
