Dana White has revealed that he expects Conor McGregor to make over $75 million in a fight with Floyd Mayweather.
The UFC President also speculated that Mayweather himself could earn over $100 million.
“It depends on how much the fight sells. And if the fight sells as well as I think it can, Floyd makes a little north of $100 (million) and Conor makes $75 (million).”
Dana also said that he will try to strike a deal with Conor’s side before approaching Mayweather’s, “I think we get the McGregor side in the next couple of days.”

He continued to say on The Herd with Colin Cowherd, “And then I go lock myself in a room for a couple days with Team Mayweather and see what we can come out with.”
The American businessman went on to explain why Floyd Mayweather would get paid more than Conor, “He (Mayweather) feels like he’s the A-side and he should get more of it.
“We haven’t really gotten into that negotiation yet. I wanted to get McGregor locked in first, because McGregor 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. But Conor wants this thing really bad and I’ve said it many times, the kid’s stepped up and saved some big fights for me, man, so I’m in. I’ll figure it out.”
