Conor McGregor Named In 2017 Forbes 30 Under 30 List

James Fenton

Not content with being the undisputed king of MMA, Conor McGregor looks set to blow the business world out of the water as well. 

The Notorious has been named among illustrious company in the 2017 Forbes 30 for 30 list for Europe.

Speaking about the 28-year-old UFC Lightweight champion, the publication writes:

Known for his aggressive fighting style, this versatile mixed martial arts fighter has both lightweight and featherweight championships under his belt. And The Notorious, as he’s known, is making money with every punch: A single fight in August earned him a $3 million purse.

That’s a lot of cheese and the Crumlin native could be set to rake in a lot more if reports of a fight between him and Floyd Mayweather are to be believed.

And sure who’d begrudge him?

Other names on the list include footballers Luis Suarez and Gareth Bale as well as Game Of Thrones star Sophie Turner and Scottish singer Emile Sande.
