Expect a fight announcement sometime next month . . .
Yesterday, Dana White was in NYC to promote UFC and was spotted on Fifth by TMZ Sports. The President of the brand soon confirmed that the Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor are nearing a contractual agreement to have a future fight before year’s end or early 2018.
Dana confirmed that Money would be receiving his $100 million deal and revealed that the Irish superstar would also be in line for a $75 million check. Being the biggest draw in the history of the pay-per-view and digital era, Floyd has been able to justify his negotiation.
However, his fighting opponent wasn’t in favor of receiving a lesser payday – taking to social media on Thursday afternoon about the situation. The Notorious One went to say, “I don’t need glasses I just like how they look on my face even though they tilt on me cos of my banged-up nose and ears I still feel like I look good happy Thursday everyone how’s that 75milli make your stomach feel?
It’s actually 100+ million if we go by the non-conservative numbers the fight. That’s not including my endorsements and business ventures. 28 years of age. Fresh cunt. Doubt me now.”
Take a look at a bonus video response to Dana White and the President of UFC’s original announcement video with Fox Sports 1. Let us know in the comments if you think the fight happens.
Here is a reply video I sent one of my protégés who was seeking advice on some boxing only pad work footage they sent me. I believe you will like it. The focus has been solely boxing lately but make no mistakes, the kicking and grappling aspects, and everything else got to do with unlimited free fighting, is still very much present in my thoughts. Floyd may crap his jocks after all and if so I will go back to true fighting or just pick another boxer like manny or something. But whatever that's another conversation. I like to build fighters and watch their progression. I have built many to this date, and all unintentionally. One is fighting in the UFC main event this weekend. When my son is born I will build him up into a multiple free fighting world champion also. Just like his old man. I look forward to it.
