Dana White makes big money offer to Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather

Dana White makes big money offer to Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather

$25million to box against Conor McGregor. He said the three parties would discuss pay-per-view splits.

"We tried to make the Conor McGregor fight", Mayweather told ESPN's First Take.

Floyd Mayweather's response to Dana White's financial offer for a bout between Mayweather and Conor McGregor was vintage "Money May". "Here's a real offer, and I'm the guy that can actually make the offer, and I'm actually making a real offer".

"Floyd's gone undefeated for 20 years, I give him all the credit in the world for doing that". $25 million isn't much when you realize that he made $200 million on the Manny Pacquiao fight. He earned a disclosed $32 million purse for that fight and retired from boxing with a career 49-0 mark. But, as of late, he has been entertaining the idea of a fight between the UFC lightweight champion.

McGregor became the first man to simultaneously hold UFC titles in two weight divisions when he beat Eddie Alvarez in NY on November 12.

Afghanistan: UAE Ambassador injured in Kandahar Blast
Reportedly, it also injured the provincial governor of Kandahar and the UAE ambassador who was visiting the city. The attacks were also denounced by Pakistan, Iran, India, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Singapore and other countries.

The 28-year-old posted a picture on Twitter of himself standing over the fallen figure, wearing one boxing belt and holding aloft two others. He also has demanded a business meeting with the UFC's new ownership at entertainment agency WME-IMG. Wrong again. And to think that you're the A side?

White said it was unlikely Mayweather ever talked to McGregor.

It looked like we were heading in the right direction this week when Mayweather revealed he would offer McGregor $15 million to fight. Conor did 1.3 million and 1.5 million buys. We're the A-side and I don't know how much money he has made?

Mayweather added: "You guys keep hearing all these different rumours about different fighters want to face Floyd Mayweather". I'm the promoter. Conor McGregor is under contract to me. He said he wants a guaranteed $100 million for the fight.

Speaking to a Fox radio broadcast, White said that the two would be likely to meet in a boxing ring, not the UFC octagon. Although he recently acquired a licence he couldn't cope in a boxing match with Mayweather, the greatest of his era.
