Conor McGregor is by far the biggest name and draw for the UFC currently. He hasn't even fought for them in over a year! His last fight was the giant super-fight boxing match with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. For that fight, he took home a reported $30 million. Once you factor in PPV buys, co-promotion, and other various things we don't know about, he probably took home close to three times that.
Say what you will about the guy, but he puts butts in seats. he is charismatic as hell, knows how to sell himself, and has taken mixed martial arts into the mainstream like no other fighter besides Ronda Rousey. Turns out, these last four years he was filming it all!

As far as his next UFC fight, as he has repeatedly said: he wants equity in the UFC and to co-promote from now on. He wants to fight current UFC Lightweight Interim Champion Tony Ferguson to unify the titles. He is after all the reigning champ. There is no word on a time-table for the fight.
