Floyd Mayweather recently outlined what he and his team are willing to pay Conor McGregor for a much discussed bout with the UFC champ, and now Dana White has made his own offer…
Earlier this week, Mayweather told ESPN that he tried to make a boxing bout with McGregor a reality, and that they’re willing to pay the star $15 million for the fight. The undefeated boxer, however, said he has to make $100 million, and that he would take more of the pay-per-view dividends. As Mayweather put it, he’s the “A side”.
Well, more recently, White sat down with Colin Cowherd, and the UFC boss man took issue with Mayweather’s stipulations. White argued that McGregor is the only big money fight out there for Mayweather, since his last bout only pulled “350,000” PPV buys. White also claimed that the retired boxer hasn’t talked to anyone about fighting McGregor.
Not only that, but White proceeded to offer Mayweather and McGregor $25 million each for the bout, and PPV revenue, which would be negotiated.
So, how about that huh? Now, could the fight go down? As a result of this offer? One would think the odds are still low, but, not as low as they were a couple of days ago.
