Alright, this is just ridiculous. Conor McGregor just shattered the UFC record for most money made per second, recently held by Ronda Rousey, with his 13 second knockout of Jose Aldo this past weekend. Forbes has stated that McGregor will make at least $3 per pay-per-view purchase, estimated to be over a million.
If you crunch the numbers, even with the lowest PPV projections in play, plus his combined fight and sponsor payout, McGregor will net at least $275,000 per second. Don’t believe the math? As they say a picture is worth a thousand words.
I’m in the wrong line of work.
