UFC President Dana White wants to see one of the most-talked about, crossover sports fights in the world, and he’s willing to pay $25 million for it.
“I’ll tell you what, Floyd, here’s a real offer, and I’m the guy,” White said on “The Herd With Colin Cowherd.”I’m the guy who can actually make the offer, and I’m actually making a real offer. We’ll pay you 25 million, we’ll pay Conor [McGregor] 25 million, and then we’ll talk about pay-per-view at a certain number. There’s a real offer, okay?”
Mayweather was less than impressed:
“You’re a f*cking comedian!” he told TMZ.
When repeatedly pressed for his answer on whether there was a deal or no deal, he simply, Floyd simply put his hand out the window of his SUV and said, “Man, look at my watch.” He didn’t say how much the watch was, but the obvious implication was that it was more than what Dana was offering.
Sorry boxing and MMA fans, it looks like the Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor fight is not going to happen anytime soon.
