123 0

No matter the outcome of their fight at UFC 202 on Saturday night, Nate Diaz and Conor McGregor‘s bank accounts will come out victorious.

The Nevada Athletic Commission on Saturday disclosed that McGregor, win or lose, would top the UFC 202 fighter payroll with a salary of $3 million, while Diaz was right behind him at $2 million.

McGregor’s disclosed payday returns him to the highest paid slot in UFC history. He was the first to get a disclosed $1 million payday, but Brock Lesnar briefly surpassed him at UFC 200 with a salary of $2.5 million.
