Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor: How Much Money Would The Fighters Make?

UFC president Dana White says Floyd Mayweather will make around $100m (£78.1m), while Conor McGregorshould earn $75m (£58.5m) if the boxing fight between the pair becomes a reality. McGregor, the reigning UFC lightweight champion, was awarded a spot on this year's Time 100, Time's annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, which was released Thursday.

For months, the last two fighters who know how to sell fights have been in the media on some on-again, off-again nonsense regarding their long-rumored bout, with Floyd saying back in March that he'll be coming out of retirement "just to fight Conor McGregor".

Writing about the MMA star, Schwarzenegger said that McGregor is "more than a fighter, more than an athlete, more than a champion" and that his contagious energy has had the Terminator star "almost start shouting in an Irish accent" in the past - something we would love to see. "We'll see. I promised Conor I'd do everything I could to make this fight happen, so that's what I'm going to do".

And the UFC boss revealed he has yet to sit down with Mayweather's team, meaning the bout is quite a way off being agreed. "We really haven't got into that negotiation yet", he said.

McGregor vs. Mayweather will nearly certainly take place, simply due to the fact that there is so much money to be made by pitting the greatest boxer of his generation against the biggest draw in all of combat sports.

Agreeing with Mayweather's notion that "he's the "A" side and he should get more" White stated they, 'haven't really got into that negotiation yet, ' because "I wanted to get McGregor locked in first because he's is under contract with me". And at the end of the day, does this fight make a ton of sense for me? It really doesn't", White told Cowherd, "but you know, Conor wants this thing really bad, and I've said it many times, this kid has stepped up and saved some big fights for me, man. "I'll figure it out". Maybe the Mayweather side can't be done.
