Not content with being list at number 24 of Forbes' highest-earning athletes, MMA star Conor McGregor is also making his mark in the celebrity world.

The Notorious has been listed at number 89 with a total wad of $34 million while any potential fight with Floyd Mayweather will earn him a further $75 million.

Conor isn't even the highest-placed Irishman in the list with fellow sports star Rory McIlroy taking pride of place at number 37 with his golf earnings of $50 million. 

Not bad for a couple of Irish blokes. The was topped by Puff Daddy AKA P Diddy AKA Sean 'Puffy' Combs who has annual earnings of $130 million. 

We reckon it won't be long before the new bad boy in town McGregor overtakes the original.
