million from his lightweight title bout.

"We're estimating around 3-to-3.5 million (pay-per-view buys), I'd say I'll close in around the $50-million mark," McGregor said, via Peter Carroll of MMAFighting.com. "So, for a mixed martial artist to make $50 million from a mixed martial arts bout, it's quite breathtaking."
