The biggest fight in boxing/MMA history between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather looks like it might happen after Dana White tabled an offer to both fighters whilst talking to an American sports show.
The world of combat sports seems to focus on super fights from time to time, and the bout that is en vogue at the moment is a crossover bout between undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather and two-weight UFC champion Conor McGregor. We are willing to give him $15 million and then we can talk about splitting the percentage - the back end - on the pay-per-view. We're the A-side and I don't really know how much money he has made before.
While the money is substantial, many have already opined that White came in far too low to actually get Mayweather on board with the fight. White said he figures a Mayweather-McGregor bout would do more than 2 million buys on pay per view, perhaps even approaching Mayweather-Pacquiao, which went over 4 million. "So I don't know how you think you're the A-side".
While McGregor's disclosed paydays for his last several fights have been short of that number, he is believed to make well above $10 million per fight when pay-per-view bonuses are included.
"How are you the 'A-side?' " White said, referring to Mayweather.
White scoffed at Mayweather's claim this week that he'd offered McGregor $15 million to climb into the ring with him.
Conor McGregor is now the top dog of UFC, and it's partly to do with his ability to engage viewers with his braggadocios attitude and his ability to back it up in the octagon. Just hours after the White interview aired, TMZ caught up with Mayweather. "My number is a guaranteed $100 million", Mayweather said on Wednesday.
Mayweather, who is now retired, has stated that he would only come out of retirement to box McGregor.
The rumors of the fight happening have always seemed like a long shot since they started a year ago, but this is the first time White has entertained the idea of the fight.
"We tried to make the McGregor fight".
Speaking to a Fox radio broadcast, White said that the two would be likely to meet in a boxing ring, not the UFC octagon.
