Conor McGregor has acknowledged a fan for claiming that the UFC star is making almost a billion, but still is staying hungry as ever.

McGregor got a lot of heads turning during the mid-2010s. It is safe to say that the Irishman alone brought a ton of viewership to the UFC, and hence the name – ‘The face of the fight game’.

The Showman never fails to deliver a cracker of a performance as well. Out of the top 10 highest grossing PPVs of all time, McGregor features 6 times in the list (Top 6), and this has gone a long way in increasing his net worth, as it stands close to 120 million USD.

Besides this, he owns quite a few companies as well. August McGregor – the suit line which he launched alongside David August prior to McGregor vs Mayweather. Proper 12 whiskey was launched in 2018, but it now has been sold, due to which many say has doubled his net worth.

Despite soaring off the octagon, The Notorious’ work ethic is a sight to behold. He has always stayed in the best of shape, and now that he has a trilogy bout coming up, he has been working harder than ever.

Recently a fan took to Twitter to point out to McGregor working hard as ever, despite making close to a billion.

The fan tweeted:

“Heading toward a BILLI $$ and still going hard as ever!! This is why I been saying to fellow @TheNotoriousMMA fans no matter what, just appreciate this man for still fighting! Still entertaining us! BC he doesn’t have to do this anymore! #Inspiration

The Irishman quickly acknowledged the fan’s tweet, while also thanking him.

McGregor’s reply read:

“Thank you Sir, I absolutely love it! I’m as hungry as I’ve ever been! If not even more hungry!! Honoured to be in the position to entertain my fans! I do not take it for granted! July 10th is ours!”

An enraged McGregor also took a dig at his old rival Nate Diaz, asking Novitzky how it was fair for the USADA to stop testing Diaz just because he launched his own nutrition line.

The Irishman had the following to say:

“.@JeffNovitzkyUFC how come the public isn’t told about positive tests anymore? How after the Nate Diaz steroid debacle, where he produced his own nutrition companies tainted multivitamin, was instantly cleared prior to a mega money fight, are we now in the dark on test results?”
