In 2021 Conor Mcgregor topped Forbes’ list of top paid athletes in the world with 180 million. This year he’s fallen to number 35, at 43 million. I believe these numbers are actually low though, because the UFC doesn’t tell the PPV cut Conor gets, and it’s substantial.
Jake Paul made his first appearance on the list at number 46, earning $38 million from fights and endorsements related to fighting.
The only fighter to be on the top ten this year was Canelo Alvarez $90 million. Tyson Fury came in at 18 with 62 million
