UFC megastar Conor McGregor ordered to disclose his income from the sale of issue 12

Conor McGregor has not one, but two big fights on the horizon.

On Saturday, June 29, McGregor will return to the Octagon for the first time in nearly three years when he faces former Bellator MMA champion “Iron” Michael Chandler in the main event of UFC 303.

Today, the Irishman is worth more than $200 million, most of which comes from the sale of his popular Irish whiskey brand, Proper No. 12. By selling a majority stake in Proximo Spirits for $600 million in 2021, McGregor and everyone involved in creating the product became very rich.

Well, maybe not all.

McGregor's longtime friend and former UFC fighter Artem Lobov sued the former two-division champion, claiming he was promised a 5% stake in Proper No. 12 but never received any money from the sale. McGregor reportedly offered Lobov a flat fee of $1 million, but “The Russian Hammer” turned it down.

As a result, McGregor is forced to disclose his income to the High Court in Dublin by Friday, May 10, according to a report in The Irish Sun.

McGregor is said to have received around $140 million from the sale. If Lobov successfully argues his case, he will be able to receive 5% of the $600 million for which he sold the whiskey brand, or $20 million.

Lobov also filed a lawsuit against Conor McGregor for defamation after “Mystic Mac” called him a “rat” during a 2022 social media rant. However, the Dublin High Court cleared Irisman of all wrongdoing and dismissed the case.
