Conor McGregor fight in ‘exploratory phase’

White said that he will offer both Mayweather and McGregor $25 million each and then they can negotiate the pay-per-view split.
The $25m guarantee is exactly $75m shy of Mayweather’s demand.White also took issue with Mayweather’s claim that McGregor has never made more than $8 million or $9 million on any one fight.”Only thing I’m probably interested in is the Conor McGregor fight”, Mayweather said. Conor’s last fight did 1.3 million and 1.5 million pay-per-view buys. “There is a real offer”.By proclaiming, he, and not Conor McGregor, is the face of mixed martial arts.

Corden said that he sent the video with Michael to Mariah Carey in order to give her an idea of what the segment would be like. On his first Late Late Show of 2017, Corden paid tribute to Michael, explaining how the sketch came about.
White’s offer came in response to a recent appearance by Floyd Mayweather on ESPN’s “First Take”. Conor’s last fight, he did a million-three and a million-five pay-per-view buys. “I don’t know what he’d make, but he’d make a ton of money”, Lylte told MMAWeekly.com. Mayweather retired after his bout against Andre Berto in 2015. So, I don’t understand how you think you’re the “A” side. Any negotiation for a fight with McGregor would have to go through White since McGregor is under contract with him, according to White. I think he could beat your average boxer and even some good boxers.Crucially, McGregor attained a boxing licence last month, granted by the California State Athletic Commission, which would allow him to fight in the state. Beyond McGregor telling Mayweather he wants $100 million to fight under boxing rules, Skip Bayless believes Mayweather’s “insultingly low offer” of $15 million is proof that he is afraid of McGregor and wants absolutely no part of him in the ring.But with Mayweather saying he’s not willing to fight for less than a NZ$144 million, the fight looked unlikely to get off the ground.McGregor’s purse for his lightweight title fight against Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 was undisclosed, but he made a guaranteed $3 million for the second Nate Diaz fight – before PPV numbers were added.”We’re the A-side and I don’t know how much he has made but I’m pretty sure he hasn’t made $2m (£1.65m) in an MMA bout”.
