UFC 196 salaries: Conor McGregor earns $1 million despite loss

-

Despite losing to Nate Diaz by submission on Saturday, Conor McGregor still walked out of the Octagon as a pretty wealthy man.

The final salaries were revealed for UFC 196, and, let’s just say, McGregor left with much more money than anyone else on the card that night. Former women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm also walked out with a nice paycheck in defeat, leaving with $500,000.

As far as the winners go, Nate Diaz left with $500,000 while Miesha Tate took home $92,000. She received $46,000 for fighting, and $46,000 for beating Holm.
