“My crew and myself have accomplished lots of nice work – and with the UFC – we’ve accomplished lots of good work.
“It is give or take [nine figures]. The Mayweather combat was 9 figures however we’re nearly there, it is a good, strong eight figures – half manner there.

“We’re all very happy with where we’re at. It’s not what the Mayweather fight was but it’s a good half way there.
“And to fight this bum, this flat-footed fool that everyone thinks is all this and all that.
“He’s stuck in the mud and he’s going to freeze in there. We’re very happy with the deal.”
McGregor’s last UFC appearance came in 2016 when he became a two-weight champ by beating Eddie Alvarez.
And he vowed to put on a show against Khabib, who was on the bus he infamously attacked.
Notorious added: “I believe [it will be a] KO, a devastating KO.
“I hope it’s not too early. I believe I will clatter him and he will crumble.
“I don’t believe he can take a smack. I don’t think he has the chin of a [Nate] Diaz or the composure of a [Floyd] Mayweather.
“He has a glass chin that hasn’t been cracked yet. I hope he absorbs it then I’ll maul him.”
