The former UFC legend Conor McGregor could earn around $100 million for a fight as predicted by UFC analyst Joe Rogan. There has been no certainty if the UFC superstar Conor McGregor will return or not and the MMA community has been waiting for it. The longtime commentator Joe Rogan made a statement in “Joe Rogan Experience Podcast” recent episode.
Conor McGregor Retirement Will End Soon
Rogan believes that McGregor is just waiting for a fun fight, and that is the reason he has not fought somebody lately. Well, that said fun fight will add a whopping $100 million to his net worth. Rogan said,
Whatever he wants… probably do a lot of coke [laughs]. I’m just kidding. I think he’s going to have some fun. I think if he finds a fight that’s fun — he’s got $100M in the bank — if he finds a fight that’s fun, he’s going to do it.
We can assume that Rogan’s fun fight ultimately points out to the fight that would help him earn good money. The analyst also mentioned that the UFC wanted McGregor to fight the most famous strikers in the Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone promotion, which eventually shut down. Conor wanted it to be the main event, and apparently, that didn’t happen. UFC refused to grant the demand as the promotion only involves big title fights as an event’s headliners.

There were talks about him doing a Cowboy fight. But UFC felt that no championship title wouldn’t make it that valuable. The MMA and McGregor’s fans must certainly take note of this.

The statement supports UFC president Dana White’s statement regarding the UFC champ being afraid of fights. However, he denied the statement later on.
