Dana White Trying To Make Mayweather-McGregor Fight Happen
The idea of a fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor keeps floating around, and Dana White is trying to make it happen.
As the face of the UFC, White is trying to get his biggest star, McGregor, in the ring with "Money Mayweather." Not only would it be a super-fight, it would make everybody involved filthy stinking rich.
Both fighters are jawing at each other, throwing out dollar amounts for the other to agree to for the fight to happen, but both parties are still way off from anything close to a done deal. Mayweather typically makes around $100 million per fight, which causes him to scoff at most deals thrown his way.
Clearly, the UFC wants this fight more than Mayweather. White recently offered both fighters $25 million each, and a split of the pay-per-view profits, but that still probably won't be enough.
