Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor: UFC's Dana White projects ginormous paydays

Share

UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is one of the most influential fighters to have ever competed in the sport of mixed martial arts and it appears as if his impact has transcended the mainstream media world as well as he has landed a spot on the this year's Time 100 list of influential people, which was released today (April 20, 2017).

'What is your projection on total purse for this, all said and done?' said Cowherd, to which White replied: "It depends on how much the fight sells".

"I think we get the McGregor side done in the next couple of days, and then I go lock myself in a room for a couple of days with Team Mayweather and see what we can come out with", White told Cowherd.

Mr Page himself seems to have been caught between downplaying his own role in the campaign and preserving his personal dignity. When Tapper asked if Sam Clovis, another former Trump campaign official, was the one to bring him on, Page said, "no comment".

UFC president Dana White has cautioned he still has a lot of work left to do in order to make a proposed boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. "We really haven't got into that negotiation yet", he said.

'I don't need glasses I just like how they look on my face even tho they tilt on me cos of my banged up nose and ears I still feel like I look good happy Thursday everyone how's that 75milli make your stomach feel?' he wrote. It really doesn't. But Conor wants this thing really bad, and I've said it many times - kid's stepped up and saved some big fights for me, man. "I'm in, I'll figure it out".

That was only the reported fight purse, but $75 million from a single bout will be a massive jump in revenue for McGregor.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Tuesday the company would do all it can to "prevent tragedies like this from happening again". She said they remained friends after their breakup and she wanted to get him help for his gambling problem.

Mayweather was guaranteed $100 million for his fight against Manny Pacquiao on May 2, 2015. Mayweather quickly laughed off the proposal. The UFC star is also open to the idea of fighting the undefeated boxer and the pair have already been involved in a war of words.

This all comes down to money; if the two are paid well enough, the fight will happen.

Mayweather hasn't fought since he defeated Andre Berto on September 12, 2015, and McGregor's last fight came on November 12, 2016 when he knocked out Eddie Alvarez to become the UFC lightweight champion.
