He's worth every cent.
13 seconds. The amount of time it took Conor McGregor to knock out Jose Aldo and become the UFC featherweight champion of the world.

Those 13 seconds also made the Crumlin man rich beyond his wildest dreams and the breakdown of his earnings per second are unbelievable.

The people at Forbes have been doing the math and here are their estimates on the lowest and highest amount of money McGregor earned on Saturday night.

"McGregor’s contract gives him a cut of pay-per-view shares: a reported $3-$5 for each purchase. While we don’t know exactly how many buys UFC 194 will total — most outlets predict well over one million.

"Going off the lowest figures in that equation, one million PPV buys with a $3 cut, McGregor would already be getting paid more than $230,000 per second.

"Add in his $580,000 combined fight and sponsor pay, and that number rises to over $275,000 per second ($3.5 million total). In case you’re curious, a more optimistic estimate for McGregor — say, a $5 PPV cut and 1.5 million PPV buys — would equate to nearly $622,000 per second ($8 million total)."

**So that's somewhere between €210,000 and €568,000 per second in that fight. Incredible.**font: www.joe.ie
