Dana White joined The Herd today to make a counter-offer to Floyd Mayweather, who was in the ESPN Carwash earlier this week talking about how he made a $15 million offer plus incentives to Conor McGregor for them to fight. McGregor, White said, remains under UFC contract, and said Mayweather has not contacted him.
White countered with a $25 million guarantee for both Mayweather and McGregor, with an unspecified split of the proceeds to sweeten the pot for Mayweather.
Cowherd, at the end of the segment, estimated that each fighter would make $60-70 million for the fight. That number may or may not be enough for Mayweather.
When news of this potential fight first broke, it was our opinion that it is never going to happen. But, the primary players keep talking about it, and there is a lot of money involved. Maybe down the road an agreement gets struck?
