Dana White, Conor McGregor Rip Showtime Sports Over Pay-Per-View Figures

For Espinoza, the feeling apparently is mutual.

Last summer, White teamed up with Showtime to promote the epic crossover fight pitting UFC champion Conor McGregor against Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match that ended up as one of the biggest sporting events in history.

However, one major part of the equation is not surprisingly siding with White and rapidly fired back at Espinoza. Sports about collaborating with Showtime for the blockbuster bout between McGregor and Conor McGregor.

It appears a sore subject for both of the UFC's most famous faces, but Mayweather vs. McGregor is long over with, and perhaps they'd be best served to shifting their focus to rebounding from a brutally down year for MMA in 2017.

The numbers on the pay per view event were highlighted recently as officially just doing less than the current all time record of 4.6 million buys in the US. Sports. "The thing did over 6.7 million buys, and if the service didn't drop we would have got closer to 7 million". The way that they handled that press release and what they did - I didn't trust them before and now I despise those f-king guys.

"I think Tony would have a higher percentage of getting caught with a big shot", Poirier said. But it also carried a hint of sarcasm. "Strange that telling the truth, in a press release vetted by all parties in advance, is something to be "despised" for".

"Shut your weasel mouth", McGregor interjected on Twitter.

However, it is important to note that this figure just represents the North American market, not the global total which is obviously the most important number, not just the American number.

"LOL...except that it wasn't #1 in worldwide revenues either", he tweeted in response to McGregor.
