All but $10 million of that came from his fight with CONOR MCGREGOR . . . who finished 12th with $99 million.

 

GEORGE CLOONEYcame in second with $239 million, thanks to the sale of his Casamigos tequila brand.  That's the biggest payday for any actor in the history of the Celebrity 100.

 

Near-billionaire KYLIE JENNER is third, although she "only" made $166.5 million over the past year.  It may be tough, but she IS expected to survive.
