UFC president Dana Whitehas said that he would pay $25m apiece to Floyd Mayweather Jr and and MMA star Conor McGregor for a fight between them, presumably in a boxing ring. What is more, the $50m would only be a starting point, with asplit of additional pay-per-view revenue between the fighters to be determined. “I’m the only guy that can actually make the offer and I’m actually making a real offer,” said the promoter. “We’ll pay [Mayweather] $25m, we’ll pay Conor $25m and then we’ll talk about pay-per-view at a certain number. There’s a real offer.”
If they’re going to box, Floyd looks at this as an easy boxing match for him. Conor McGregor is his money fight.
