Because of all of the speculation of the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather fight, Dana White does not realize what he might have caused. The offer of 25 million dollars to Mayweather was taken as a joke, but for McGregor, he was probably all ears about it.
McGregor may wish that he was worth as much as Mayweather at times, but he is not even close. 25 million dollars to McGregor would be a really big deal. A new par might possibly be set in his mind and McGregor may ask for that same amount against somebody like Khabib Nurmagomedov or Tony Ferguson. WME-IMG is a very wealthy group and could very well pay McGregor that much, but it would be an insane amount to pay McGregor even compared to what they have paid him in the past.
Former NFL football star Shannon Sharpe gave his opinion on the matter and that is on the next page.
