A lot of people claim that they do not like violence, but if that were really the case, combat sports like boxing and mixed martial arts would not be as popular around the world as they are now. MMA has been especially successful over the past two decades, as the UFC holds events fairly regularly in multiple countries, and the promotion features many fighters, but only a small number of them have managed to achieve global fame.
Conor McGregor is one of those fighters, and aside from being a great athlete, he has gained notoriety as a result of having a big mouth and an even bigger ego, and he has made millions over the course of his career. Conor's net worth is around $110 million, and when you have that kind of money at your disposal, you tend to spend some of it on questionable things, and this article will focus on 15 of those things.
15. An Insane Bar Bill
Professional athletes are known for going out to clubs and bars when they have free time, and those outings tend to end with a massive bill, especially if someone offers to pay for everyone's drinks. Conor is known to have done this, at least at one party, and by the time the night was over, he had a bar tab of $100,000.
14. A Very Rude Suit
A good suit costs money, and a custom suit costs even more money, but when Conor orders a custom suit, he makes sure that it is a perfect representation of his persona. During a California news conference, Conor arrived wearing one of his personalized suits, which had the same expletive stitched along the entire suit, and it cost him about $6,500 to do this.
13. A Patched Sweater
The fashion world can be very confusing to some people, as certain pieces of clothing cost a small fortune despite looking absolutely terrible, but what is even more surprising is the fact that people actually pay for these clothes. Above is a photo of Conor wearing a patched sweater designed by Alexander McQueen, and it cost him $487.
12. A Bomber Jacket
Gucci is a well-known designer brand, but just because it is well known does not mean that every piece of clothing they produce is pleasant to look at. One of those iffy pieces of clothing is an embroidered dogs floral bomber jacket which the designer put a $3,750 price tag on, and Conor decided to pay that.
11. All The Watches
Thanks to advancements in technology, no one needs an actual watch anymore, but that has not stopped major watchmakers like Rolex from making money, as people like Conor are willing to buy expensive watches just to show off. Over the years, Conor has bought several Rolex watches, to the point that he now has a collection worth around $800,000.
10. All The Shoes
Shoes were originally designed to protect our feet while walking outside, but they are now an essential part of fashion, which is why certain pairs of shoes cost as much as a new cellphone. Conor has a rather large shoe collection consisting of designer brands, which is why he spent $750 on a pair of Jimmy Choos and $868 on a pair of Gucci sneakers.
9. The Car Collection
Most people need one or two cars to do whatever it is they need to do, but when you have McGregor money, you can buy a bunch of really expensive cars. Conor's car collection is worth more than $5 million, and it includes multiple Bentleys, a McLaren 12 C, a Corvette Stingray, and several luxury cars from Lamborghini.
8. The Second Jet
There are rich people who fly on public planes, but there are those who would much rather go the private route, which is why people like Conor buy a private jet. You would think that one jet would be enough, but for some reason, the UFC star decided that he needed two, which is why he bought a second plane that cost him at least $16 million.
7. Gourmet Food In The Air

People with an absurd amount of money tend to eat very well, and many of them have a gourmet chef in their home or on retainer, and these chefs do not come cheap, especially if travel is involved. We already know that Conor flies in private jets, but while he is in the air, he makes sure to have gourmet meals because normal food just does not cut it.
6. The Yacht
Rich people like boats, especially yachts, which makes sense seeing as sailing is a good pass time, but the problem is that boats require a lot of maintenance, and that turns them into money pits. Conor bought a $12 million yacht a few years ago, and for some reason he named it "188", and after using it for a bit, he tried selling it.
5. The Custom Bentley
Conor's car collection includes more than one Bentley, but there is one that is truly unique, as he had both the interior and exterior customized to suit his needs. As far as the exterior is concerned, he had his face and the word "Notorious" painted on the doors, and all the work caused him to ultimately pay $300,000 for the car.
4. The Sunglasses Collection
People are only supposed to wear sunglasses so they can be outside without getting blinded by the sun, but there are those who wear them as accessories. which is why Conor has a collection of them. Conor has bought pairs from every major designer like Louis Vuitton and Dior, and to put things in perspective, he bought a pair of Gucci GG0087S Aviator sunglasses valued at $800.
3. The Amount He Spends To keep Suits Fitted
As it turns out, the expletive suit is just one of many in Conor's collection, and he usually spends at least $4,000 on each suit. That is an insane number on its own, but what is even more outlandish is the fee he pays to actually get all those suits properly fitted, as spends up to $10,000 to do so with every suit.
2. His Training Camps
As an MMA fighter, Conor needs to stay in shape, which is why he spends a lot of time training, and he goes all out, but in order to do that, he has to pay top dollar. When Conor holds training camp, he brings in the most skilled coaches available, and every time he holds one of these camps, it costs him around $300,000.
1. A Gucci Fur Coat
Conor is no stranger to flare and controversy, which is why he decided to have Gucci make him a custom fur coat in 2017, and he was heavily criticized for using real fur. He wore the fur piece to a press event in New York, and the coat cost around $30,000 on its own, but his entire ensemble for that day was valued at $150,000.
