Dana White: 'Floyd Mayweather Never Made an Offer to Conor McGregor'

The talk about UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor and boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. fighting seemed farfetched until Friday when UFC president Dana White officially made Mayweather an offer.

But what began as a brand awarenessexercise for both camps, may now very well be at the "let's take a look at the blueprints" stage, with all of the key stakeholders stimulating the possibility of tentative exploration with firmed up offers, counter offers and insults. When they told him the amount of money White is offering him, he laughed and said "He a f*cking comedian".

In an MMA fight, there's little doubt that Mayweather would struggle, but the bout being talked about would take place in the boxing ring under boxing rules.

"It's tough for me to think whoever bought Mayweather-Pacquiao wouldn't buy Mayweather-McGregor", Espinoza said.

However, Mayweather does not appear to be entertaining the idea, having previously claimed that he could reasonably expect to make £80m or more out of the fight due to his track record. Floyd said, before showing off one of his ridiculously expensive watches as further proof showing how beneath him the offer was.

"They know what my number is. My number is a guaranteed $100 million", he said, adding that he considered himself the "A-side" of the promotion. He hasn't made offers to anybody. "Here's a real offer, and I'm the guy that can actually make the offer, and I'm actually making a real offer. Where do we go from here, Floyd?"

McGregor became the first man to simultaneously hold UFC titles in two weight divisions when he beat Eddie Alvarez in NY on November 12.

However, Mayweather also made it clear that he would be the significant favorite in terms of fighter pay, asking to compare what he's made in the past to what McGregor has made in the past and set the purses accordingly.

"Money" Mayweather tackled the money issue again while chatting with Gray.
