Conor McGregor has revealed that he is negotiating an astonishing NINE-figure deal with the UFC as he bids to capitalise on his number one standing within the sport.
The Irishman is the UFC's hottest property with millions being made from each fight he participates in and, speaking with Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com, the Notorious claims a $100million deal is "en route".
"I'm waiting on my next multi, nine-figure contract, which is en route," he said. "I just let everyone up there know, I let the bosses know and everybody there know what I bring and my worth."
McGregor is box office but talk of a $100million contract is unheard of in UFC circles but the Crumlin man is adamant he can make it happen.
"Because the contract that I'm talking now is nine figures, nine figures I'm talking. Nobody in the game has talked nine figures. That's $100 million plus," he added.
"That's my contract, so, that's where I'm at, and I've done it the way I've done it."
"Now the contract I'm talking about is nine-figures. NINE FIGURES I'm talking. Nobody in the game has got nine figures. I'm talking 100 million plus. So that's where I'm at and I've done it the way I've done it."
Despite his wealth, McGregor insists that there is nothing more important than family and he made sure they were all looked after once the money started to come in.
"Where I'm from, and when people make it and have success, there's one thing on their mind. That's family," added the Dubliner.
"When I came home from Las Vegas, I spoiled my family. I took every bill from my family. I paid for my mother's mortgage. I gave everyone brand new cars."
