For months now we have been waiting to see the world’s greatest boxer face the world’s greatest UFC fighter and we may soon get it.
Ideas of the fight were shut down in the past for various reasons, mostly due to money. UFC president Dana White originally offered them both 25M for the fight plus a cut of the pay-per-view. 25M would be a huge pay day for McGregor but not much of an incentive for Floyd. However, Floyd says that he’s not concerned with the money, he just wants to fight.
“I don’t want to hear no more excuses about the money [or] about the UFC. Sign the paper with the UFC, so you can fight me in June. Simple and plain. Let’s fight in June.”
If McGregor responds, the match will most likely be a traditional boxing match. With all of the hype building for the fight, it will definitely be legendary for both the fighters and the sport itself.
So what do you guys think? Who do you have your money on? We’ve included clips below of Floyd and Dana speaking on the situation.
