Conor McGregor to net UFC's first $1M disclosed purse in Nate Diaz tilt

LAS VEGAS -- UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor will make history this weekend after all.

McGregor (19-2), who fights Nate Diaz at UFC 196 on Saturday night, will draw a $1 million disclosed purse, according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission. It is the first $1 million disclosed purse in UFC history.

McGregor, 27, stands to make much more than that overall. The NSAC figure does not include pay-per-view bonuses, sponsorships or potential Fight Night bonuses from the UFC.

McGregor told CNBC this week he will "breeze past" $10 million.

His pay, as disclosed to the NSAC, is $1 million with no win bonus. Diaz (18-10) is listed to make $500,000 to show with no win bonus.

Female bantamweight champion Holly Holm (10-0), who signed a contract extension with the UFC in January, is also listed to make $500,000 to show with no win bonus. The purse for her opponent, No. 1 contender Miesha Tate, is $46,000 to show and $46,000 to win.
