Conor McGregor has made the Forbes Rich List once again.

For the fourth year running, the two-division UFC champion has been listed as one of the highest paid athletes for 2019.

Coming in at the number 21 spot, the Dublin star is said to have earned an estimated $47 million (€41 million) over the past year with $32 million in fight purses along with another $15 million in endorsement deals.

The Proper No. Twelve star fought once this year, in a dramatic bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.

There was over 2.4 million pay-per-views sold, which Conor earned additional bonuses for.

The father-of-two also signed a new deal with Reebok, which is estimated at $5 million per year.

Conor, 30, became the first MMA star to ever be listed on the Forbes Rich List, back in 2016.
