Video of Floyd mayweather senior saying he'll fight an MMA fighter soon.

If it's mcgregor he could literally make more money from this one fight than the entire ufc roster has made in their careers.

Now mayweather snr could be talking absolute pish so we can't be sure. He called him Mcconnor aswell lol

You know he'd take that fight in a heartbeat.  Now Mayweather would win beyond a shadow of a doubt, but it doesn't matter bc Connor would likely get 10 million just for losing and eating some punches.  He can retire after that and keep his health and be a user rich guy.

Lol come on mcgregor ain't fighting Floyd for 10m. 

 

Mcgregor right now can sell 1.6m PPV buys.  That's 100m in revenue.  Floyd for his biggest fights was around 4m PPV. But mcgregor is young and his popularity is growing.  If they fight next year mcgregor will be between 2-3m PPV.  

 

Mayweather v mcgregor would probably do over 5m PPV.  500m in revenue.  Mcgregor would be looking at getting at least a 200m cut.  

 

And that's why he won't give a shit about not signing a new contract when his current one runs out next year.  He currently makes over 10m a fight with the UFC.  That will grow but the point is he can make more from this than he will with 2 years in the UFC.  

 

And after fighting Floyd his name will be even bigger if he continues to fight in the UFC.  Basically the irishman is an incredible business man.  He's going to go from social welfare benefits to worth over 100m in 4 years.  He's an inspiration.
