Conor McGregor is set to overtake Cristiano Ronaldo In Forbes athlete rich list following his super-fight with Floyd Mayweather with Staggering £77m-plus income... just a year after UFC star predicted he would

The Dubliner's inexorable rise reached stratospheric heights in the cross-over clash which is expected to earn him in the region of £77m — and that's before endorsement deals are considered.

Ronaldo topped the list this year with earnings of £71m and has been eclipsed in 10 rounds of boxing,in which Mayweather forced a stoppage in Las Vegas.

The 'Notorious' is renowned for his predictions and remarkably foresaw overtaking the Real Madrid star when the two athletes met last year. 

Ronaldo visited the UFC lightweight champion in training and the Irishman quipped: 'You were number one on the Forbes list,I was like number 35 or something.I'll get up.Maybe next year I'll get you.' Ronaldo replied: 'I don't think so.'

McGregor will still not be on top of the athlete rankings,with Mayweather's purse superseding his earnings.Some reports claim that 'Money' is in line for £233m from the lucrative Las Vegas clash. 

But both men can expect to overtake some huge names in the world of sport such as LeBron James,Roger Federer and Lewis Hamilton. 

And now that 'Money' has retired, appropriately on top of the financial rankings, McGregor will fancy taking top spot in the coming years.

The Irishman is an active champion in the UFC and is even open to the possibility of another contest before the end of the year. 

As the organisation's premium pay-per-view lure, McGregor's fights continue to break records for Dana White both in terms of gate and broadcasting revenue. 

And at only 28-years-old,the 'Notorious' has plenty of pay days left in him.

grin angry Sport is the real yahoo ++ money we talking about, the money just keep rolling it and you also have the time to be physically fit. how i wish my kids can go into sports and have the money to push them, that can be the best retirement plan for me.

Considering doing a roof parapet?
check out price comparison between a concrete cast in suite against polystyrene parapet.
Polystyrene parapet is light weight and doesn't have much impact on the land.
excellent usage on swampy environment.

They have successfully scammed the world, by creating an illusion in which the people would buy into. And both of them cashed out.
Now they are on top Forbes list.

This is how to think big.

The race is not to a man of swiftness but it is a function of God's enabling to become anything..... Today is not a destination... Always wear contentment with humility but never settle for less keep allowing God do His work through you.. Money is just a function of value increase your value your monetary possession follows suit
