How much Mayweather and McGregor will pocket from their fight

Conor McGregor

Every week seems to bring a new tidbit of information about a potential boxing match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and UFC superstar Conor McGregor.

"I think we get the McGregor side in the next couple of days", White said (transcribed by Shaun Al-Shatti of MMA Fighting).

"And then I go lock myself in a room for a couple days with Team Mayweather and see what we can come out with".

UFC champion Conor McGregor's hotel suite was trashed and 20 laughing gas canisters were left in the wreckage.

And although White has already said he can not deny McGregor the Mayweather fight, the UFC boss assured fans no announcement was imminent.

The expected bout between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is not yet official, but the projected numbers explain why both sides are so excited to get something done. We haven't really got to into that negotiation yet.

Georges St-Pierre believes McGregor wants to drag Mayweather into a cage-fight.

"Join me in the preparation of my next fight being announced very soon!".

"I'm a smaller guy but if I want to get to that seven figure payday, I got to call "The Mac Life", he explained.

"I gotta start negotiating with Team Mayweather".

I'm thankful for the cheese.

McGregor, 28, set a UFC record last August with a disclosed fight purse of $3 million, which doesn't account for bonuses and other forms of revenue.

Speculation about a boxing fight between the UFC lightweight champion and retired boxer have not gone away. Could this thing actually be happening?

But while we don't know what would be produced in the ring, we do know that if the super fight were to take place, both men would break the bank in a major way. "I promised Conor I'd do everything I could to make this thing happen, so that's what I'm gonna do".

All the signs are pointing to the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight inching ever closer to reality. "There's no doubt that people want to see this fight".

"If were close, I'd tell you we were close".

What may be a bit surprising is White on Wednesday revealed that he doesn't plan for the UFC to be the headlining brand on any such event.
