He didn't joke while saying it and seriously saying he wants to top the highest Payed Athletes List annually released by Forbes.
“Ronaldo was number one last year, I was number 24... with $34 million in revenue,” McGregor said, adding that he pocketed an eye-watering $140 million from his 10th round technical knockout defeat by Mayweather in their boxing match in August.

“Next year, if it stands as is, Floyd will be number one, I’ll be number two, and Ronaldo will be number three (on the Forbes list). If I fight one or two more times I will overtake him (Mayweather),” added McGregor.

“So that’s what my goal is right now - number one, highest-paid athlete Forbes 2018, make my way towards the billion-dollar mark, and then continue to go.”

The UFC star also made the possibility more glaring by bringing in similarities of his intended plan with that of the highest paid celebrity P-DIDDY, revealing he will like to co-promote future fights with the UFC as well as getting a stake in the company.

“It is certainly something I will seek. I will seek equity in the company, I will seek to be a part of the company... it makes sense form all angles, but we’ll see. We’re in the negotiations stage.”

The 29-year-old, who hasn’t fought in the octagon since beating Eddie Alvarez to claim the UFC lightweight title a year ago, enthused about rapper P Diddy’s business ventures and outlined his own plans to build a similar financial empire.

“You know P Diddy doesn’t even make music? $750 million (£567.2 million) he’s worth. Highest-paid celebrity, highest-paid rapper, multiple years in a row. He doesn’t even make music, he makes vodka. We’re following this formula,” he said.
