Professional fighter Conor McGregor has earned a bunch of titles and awards since he first stepped into the ring in 2013.

Even those who aren't fans of MMA fighting might be familiar with Conor's name. Jake Paul has been challenging him to a match ever since Conor called Floyd Mayweather's loss to Jake "embarrassing" on Instagram.

But fighting isn't Conor's only accomplishment. While MMA matches have helped Conor grow his net worth significantly, the sale of his whiskey brand Proper No. Twelve boosted that number. So, what is Conor's net worth and is he sharing his fortune with anyone in particular, say a wife? Here's what we know.

Thanks to his boxing career and his dabbling in the spirits industry, Conor now has a net worth of $200 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. The outlet writes that around $100 million of his net worth comes from the huge payout he received from fighting Floyd back in August 2017. Another $50 million comes from Conor's October 2018 fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov.

In total, Celebrity Net Worth estimates that Conor has collected $235 million from his fights alone. On top of that, he gets even more money from pay-per-view numbers. Fighters still get paid even if they lose a fight and can also earn bonuses for making fights more entertaining by implementing different techniques, like knockouts.

So, although Conor isn't a billionaire, he strongly believes that he'll one day reach that milestone, The U.S. Sun suggests.

Conor McGregor launched his whiskey brand in 2018.

Although Conor founded his brand, Proper No. Twelve, in 2017, it didn't hit shelves until 2018. And just three years later, he sold it. The brand's website says Conor and his team have a passion for Ireland, his home country, and whiskey. "He found this at the oldest whiskey distillery on the Isle of Ireland and with his master distiller created a unique and special blend," it reads.

According to CBS Sports, after selling the spirits brand to Proximo Spirits, Conor revealed that this was his plan all along.

"When we started this business with Proximo, we basically laid out, I'll call it certain hurdles, that would allow them to buy pieces of the company over time," Conor's business partner Ken Austin told Shanken News Daily. "We hit a milestone and it gave Proximo the opportunity to own a significant stake."

Even though it's no longer his company, Conor is still the spokesperson for the brand and shows up on its website and ads — but there's no word on how much money he's making from being the face of the company. "Conor is very, very fixated on this being a multimillion-case brand," Ken told Shanken. "I wouldn't count him out ever."

Conor isn't married yet, but he's got plans in place. Back in August 2020, Conor shared on Instagram that he was engaged to his girlfriend Dee Devlin. "What a birthday, my future wife," the post's caption reads. Page Six says that the couple grew up living down the street from one another in their hometown of Crumlin, in Walkinstown, Ireland, and first got together in 2008.

Conor says that he met his fiancée at a friend's party but always knew the same people. The couple started talking on the social media site Bebo, laying a solid foundation as friends before starting a relationship. They have three young kids, Conor Jr., Croia Mairead, and Rian. And during his June 2023 appearance on Live With Kelly and Mark, Conor revealed that he Dee are expecting their fourth child!

"Every day since I started in this game, she’s supported me," Conor told VIP Magazine in a 2013 interview. "She’d drive me to the gym, and she’d listen to all my dreams. I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for her."

Considering how long Conor and Dee have been together, perhaps soon we can celebrate their marriage!
