Despite mixed reviews, Proper 12 did a humongous business of $1 billion by 2019 alone. The company’s overnight success was nothing less than spectacular as it put Conor McGregor on top again. The Notorious did everything in his capacity to promote the brand and it looks like he will continue to do the same as a global brand ambassador of the same.
With this Conor McGregor’s net worth is should come close to $300 million. If we add his previous reported net worth of $120 million with how much he has earned by selling Proper 12, McGregor is worth a whopping $275 million.

Conor McGregor is one of the biggest names in the world of mixed martial arts. Needless to say, McGregor will continue to associate himself with the whiskey brand. While there has been no official confirmation regarding the same, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if McGregor continues to be the brand ambassador of the whiskey and pocket money from there.
If we talk about his mixed martial arts career, McGregor announced his return to the Octagon early this year when he took on Dustin Poirier at UFC 257 in a losing effort. The loss marked McGregor’s second straight loss in the UFC’s lightweight division.
The former lightweight and featherweight champion is now looking at a potential trilogy bout against Dustin Poirier. According to UFC President Dana White, the hugely anticipated match-up will take place in the summer of 2021.
