The big money on the fight definitely pushed him to sign the contract ahead of the 49-0 retired boxer. Conor McGregor announced after he signed his part of the deal on the Mayweather fight that it was a ‘historic contract‘. His boss, Dana White believes that considering the money the MMA Champion could get from the fight, he might not fight again.
Conor McGregor is prepared to fight the undefeated boxer in the boxing ring despite his MMA background, but the money is too savoring he couldn’t blink in rejection. In as much as he would want to prove a lot of people wrong because of his ego, it makes sense to lean on the Dana White’s assertions.
“Let me tell you what, the other problem is, if this thing goes down, you know Conor could make any where from $60 to $70 million. What I think is- and Floyd is gonna make a hundred or whatever- how ever the thing plays out, I mean, how do you come back and fight for $8,$9 or $10?”.
Dana White believes the money Conor earns from MMA is nothing close to how much he would get from the Mayweather fight. It would be hilarious that a guy with so much ego like Conor would bag about $70 million and come back to get his nose broken over $8 million.
The fighter was recently blessed with a baby boy whom he has dedicated his time to nurse but he shifted his focus in the meantime to training in Dublin for his boxing match with Floyd. After the Irish fighter signed his deal, he hasn’t laid low for a minute and has called out Mayweather to append his signature so that the fight can happen.
“He is a smart kid, but he might never fight again. Listen Snoop, when you’re in the fight business, you gotta be hungry man. You gotta be hungry. It’s hard to get punched in the face everyday when you got $75 million in the bank”
