Conor McGregor celebrated his three year UFC anniversary yesterday by demanding UFC fighters to thank him for what he has done for the sport in terms of earning fighters more money.
3 years ago today, I began my crusade to take all you bums from 5 figure paydays to multi seven figure paydays.
And not even a thank you.
— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) April 6, 2016
Conor McGregor made his UFC debut, against Marcus Brimage, three years ago yesterday.
Since then, McGregor has gone 8-1 earning more money than any other fighter on the roster, due to his skillset and brash attitude when it comes to promotion of fights.
McGregor now holds the top three gates for the UFC in Nevada (UFC 194 (Aldo vs. McGregor) – $10,006,249, UFC 196 (McGregor vs. Diaz) – $8,100,000 & UFC 189 (McGregor vs. Mendes) – $7,201,648)
