Johnson says McGregor’s success has opened the door for a lot of his fellow fighters to step through.
Conor earns every penny that he gets; every cent, every dollar. I take nothing away from him – get it while you can. Our careers in this sport are pretty short. They can end in a split second. Some people deserve it because they sell the fight and do all the talking, and some people don’t. I think Conor has helped out everybody to get better paid. Hopefully everybody goes up, up on the ladder when it comes to pay. If they can shell out that much money [to him], then everybody deserves a raise.
