Conor McGregor’s quest for world domination is showing no signs of letting up, a fact confirmed by Forbes as they released their 2017 list of the 100 highest-paid athletes in the world. 

In a list topped by footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, McGregor is ranked at joint 24th with the Real Madrid star’s teammate Gareth Bale.

Not bad at all, says you. For what it’s worth, Ronaldo was paid a whopping $93 last year, not including winnings or endorsements. 

McGregor is the biggest mover alongside basketball star Stephen Curry as both men rose 61 spots from last year.

The Notorious isn’t the only Irishman in the list, with golfer Rory McIlroy finishing in sixth place. 

Nice work if you can get it. If you’re interested, the whole list can be read here.
