According to Forbes, forty of the 100 highest-paid athletes on the list are National Basketball Association players, led by Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James and Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, who checked in at No. 6 and No. 8 overall, respectively.

No women made the cut for Forbes' list of the top 100 highest-paid athletes of 2018.

McGregor wrote on Instagram via MMAfighting: "Made it to number four on the Forbes list this year, if I had of fought on the agreed May 12 bout in Rio de Janeiro, I would have surpassed (Cristiano) Ronaldo and (Lionel) Messi to take second place". McGregor ($99 million) comes in fourth and Neymar ($90 million) rounds out the top five. The India skipper is placed 83 on the list.

And where, we hear you ask, is the top golfer in the list?

Jordan Spieth sat right behind him in 23rd ($41.2 million), with Rory McIlroy lying at 27th ($37.7 million).

Mayweather continues to scorch the rankings; coming in at 14th in ESPN's third annual World Fame 100 - a ranking that takes into account Forbes' annual list as well as several other metrics.




According to Forbes, the lack of women on the list has a lot to do with the growing popularity of team sports and related licensing deals as opposed to individual sports, such as golf and tennis, where women having typically earned more endorsements.

Tennis sensation Serena Williams is typically among the top earners in sports.
