Conor McGregor’s wallet is about to get a lot fatter.

The Nevada Athletic Commission announced prior to the start of Satuday night’s UFC 202 that McGregor will make a record-setting $3 million for his main event rematch fight against Nate Diaz.

The $3 million shatters the then-richest $2.5 million taken home by Brock Lesnar for his long-anticipated return to the octagon in UFC 200 last month.

Diaz will pocket $2 million.

It should be noted the amounts for McGregor and Diaz are the disclosed amounts. The actual purses for the two UFC stars could very possibly reach 8 figures apiece when it’s all said and done. This is despite the fact neither McGregor nor Diaz will get a fight bonus.

McGregor has already amassed a fortune as the Featherweight champion of the circuit. Click here to read our Conor McGregor Net Worth: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know post.
