Conor McGregor Placed in Top 25 Forbes Highest Paid Athletes

Pammachio Corsino | 09 Giugno, 2017, 01:06

But the threshold to make the list rose by $600,000 to $21.4 million.

Not only this, he is also the only cricketer to get featured in this list.

It noticed that past year Kohli made nearly United States dollars 1 million in pay and match charges from his national group play, and he's likewise among the Indian Premier League's most generously compensated players because a USD 2.3 million pay from the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

This list is topped by Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese star who plays for Real Madrid. Even Forbes acknowledged his meteoric rise, pointing out that "a vast majority of his income comes from one of the sports world's most impressive sponsorship portfolios".

The top 100 athletes earned a total of $3.11 billion over the last 12 months, a slight decrease from last year's earnings of $3.15 billion. If he lands the boxing match he wants with Floyd Mayweather, McGregor could possibly launch himself into the Top 5 on the Forbes list.

Aldridge was No. 29 out of 32 National Basketball Association players on the list. The golf star was arrested after he was found asleep behind the wheel of his auto due to his medication.


Forbes said while Woods continues to "sink further away" from the player that dominated the golf landscape, "sponsors still see value in partnering with" him.

2016 was a marquee year for the brash Irishman, who became the first man to simultaneously hold two titles in two separate weight classes after TKOing former lightweight champ Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205.

Swiss tennis great Roger Federer ($64 million) and Golden State Warriors guard Kevin Durant ($60.6 million) rounded out the top five - just as they did a year ago.

If a bout between McGregor and Mayweather does take place, both athletes should be expected to be towards the top of Forbes list next year.

Forbes' earnings figures include salaries, bonuses, prize money, appearance fees, as well as licensing and endorsement income for the past 12 months.
