UFC: leading fighter earning totals as of May 2019

As of June 2019 Conor McGregor, aka The Notorious, is still the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) fighter with the highest career earnings directly from UFC fights with approximately 12 million U.S. dollars. This does not include any undisclosed pay-per-view bonuses or any other bonuses. It also does not include any payments prior to UFC 46 in 2004.

McGregor made over 75 million fighting Floyd Mayweather

  Next to any commercial or merchandize deals Conor McGregor made over 75 million U.S. dollars on a single boxing fight versus (now former) professional boxer Floyd Mayweather on August 26th 2017. Conor McGregor retired from Mixed Martial Arts on March 26th 2019. His last official UFC fight was against Khabib Nurmagomedov on October 6th 2018 at UFC 229, which McGregor lost via Neck Crank, a submission move.

Georges St-Pierre most takedowns and strikes landed

  Georges St-Pierre, who retired just a month prior to Conor McGregor currently still holds the records for most strikes landed as well as most takedowns landed in the UFC worldwide. In direct fight earning he comes in 5th behind Michael Bisping, however these placings will change rather quickly over time for retired fighters.
