Conor McGregor learned from Lakers’ LeBron James to spend on his health
Connor McGregor has made millions of dollars throughout his fighting career, but just recently he’s learned a valuable lesson about spending money when he read about how the Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James spends his.
In a recent interview with ESPN’s Ariel Hewini, McGregor expressed that he’s started to use a lot of his money towards his body.
“I read something about LeBron James a while back, about maybe a year ago, that he spent $1.5 million annually on his health. His everything, his nutrition, his training, his everything. And I spent nothing. “I was like that’s not the way to do this. But I drop money on a blatant car, or a watch, you know what I mean? I spend on myself, on my health and my fitness and that’s helped me. Then you acquire more (money). You acquire even more then, when you’re sharp and that’s what I am now.”
In 2016, Brian Windhorst reported that James’ annual body care costs were in the seven figures. James spends a lot of his money on his trainers and home gyms, chefs, and massage therapists. McGregor will be earning estimated $80 million after his fight with Donald Cerrone. In 2018, he made approximately $50 million after his disappointing loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov.
At 35 years old, in his 17th season, the Lakers veteran has been playing phenomenal this season averaging 25.4 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 8.0 assists. Two seasons ago, James played in all 82 regular-season games and led the Cavs to their fourth straight finals.
McGregor is seeking to earn his first UFC victory since 2016. He will be fighting Cerrone this upcoming Saturday in the Welterweight division.
