At one time this seemed impossible but now this fight looks like it’s really going to happen. The fight was fueled as UFC (Ultimate Fighteing Championship) President Dana White came out with an offer that will be hard to turn down as he offered both McGregor and Floyd $25 million (90,163,750,000 Uganda shillings) each and Pay Per View negotiations.
White went ahead to throw jabs at Mayweather claiming that his last fight left a bitter taste in everyone’s mouth and no one was willing to watch it again.
This move looks to cause speculation as its clear UFC wants to promote the fight and make millions or Dana White might be worried that McGregor (who is in contract with the UFC) might go behind his back and set the match with Mayweather then UFC will make no dime.
