Floyd Mayweather Laughs at Dana White on The Heard
During an appearance on ESPN’s “First Take,” Floyd Mayweather said he attempted to make a fight with Conor McGregor and offered him $15 million while he would rake in $100 million. Dana White caught wind of Mayweather’s comments and appeared on “The Herd” to counter the retired boxer with an offer of his own to make the dream fight come to fruition.
“Here’s a real offer: We’ll pay you $25 million, we’ll pay Conor $25 million and we’ll talk about pay-per-view at a certain number. There’s a real offer,” White said.
White’s offer is merely 25 percent of Mayweather’s asking price while McGregor’s purse is $10 million more than what Mayweather offered. Despite the offer, White made it clear that there are a number of variables that come into play when attempting to make a fight happen between a UFC fighter and a boxer. But he did make one thing clear: Mayweather suggesting that he attempted to make the fight is absolutely false.

White’s counter offer clearly didn’t impress Mayweather, who spoke to TMZ just hours after the UFC president appeared on “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd. “He’s a (expletive) comedian,” Mayweather said about the $25 million offer. “Look at that watch I bought. Do you know how much that costs? Look it up.”
