Khabib’s annual earnings as UFC champion £26m LESS than fierce rival Conor McGregor in the last year – The Sun

KHABIB NURMAGOMEDOV earned just a THIRD of the money bitter rival Conor McGregor did in the last year.

Figures for the financial year ending April 6, 2020 show the Russian UFC champ pocketed just over £13million – while Notorious bagged a cool £39m.

The Irishman has set foot in the octagon three times since 2016.

His January demolition of Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone – landed him a whopping £25m.

But more recently, he was shocked by Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, when he was knocked out.

He also raked in around £4m from his Reebok sponsorship deal, which he signed in 2018, according to Forbes.

Notorious also founded his Proper No. Twelve Irish whiskey brand which is available in Ireland, Australia, Canada, Russia and the US.

However, despite Khabib still topping the 'most successful Russians under 40' list, he is a way off McGregor, 32.
