The Nevada State Athletic Commission have released information regarding the fighter purses ahead of UFC 246.

To nobody’s surprise, Conor McGregor tops the list with a reported base pay of $3 million. Of course, McGregor is likely to take home a significant amount more than that after taking a percentage of PPV revenue, sponsorship money and any bonuses.

Donald Cerrone comes in at second on the list with a disclose pay of $200,000 to show and a $200,000 win bonus should he topple the Irish superstar tonight.

Anthony Pettis comes in next on the list with a $155,000 show and an additional $155,000 if he gets through Diego Ferreira.

Total disclosed purses (excluding win bonuses) amounts to $4,091,000 meaning McGregor will take home 73% of the total disclosed purse before any win bonuses are applied.

Here is a full breakdown of the fighter pay for tonight’s event.
