  Dana White: UFC doctor says Conor McGregor in best shape he's ever seen him in Dana White: UFC doctor says Conor McGregor in best shape he's ever seen him inUFC president Dana White said the UFC doctor has told him that McGregor is looking better than ever as he gears up for his UFC 246 headliner against Donald Cerrone on Saturday.

Conor McGregor will return to the UFC Octagon on Jan. 18 in Las Vegas and fight Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone in the headliner of UFC 246. The UFC is close to finalizing a non-title welterweight bout between McGregor and Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone , which will headline UFC 246 at T-Mobile Arena.

Conor McGregor will receive his biggest EVER UFC fight purse on his return against Donald Cerrone but it's 'only' £ 3 .8m having earned an incredible £76million for fighting Floyd Mayweather. McGregor was also guaranteed around £2.2 m for the Nate Diaz rematch at UFC 202 in August 2016.

Conor McGregor will look to take his first step toward reclaiming UFC gold on Saturday, but the Irishman remains untouchable when it comes to earning green.

The former two-division champion will pocket $3 million for his return fight against Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone at UFC 246, according to Damon Martin and Steven Marrocco of MMA Fighting, citing figures from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Meanwhile, Cerrone will earn $200,000, with another $200,000 coming if he wins.

McGregor will probably take home far more than the disclosed figure once extras like pay-per-view points are added, which the UFC doesn't release. "The Notorious" said recently that he'll earn $80 million for his first fight in the Octagon since October 2018.
