The endlessly-simmering news story that is Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather continues to splash sauce all over the back of the stove, creating a mess that better damn well be worth it when it comes time to eat this thing. Today’s helping of speculative goodness: Dana White, cornered by reporters while in New York, and asked about how things are going with the potential match-up.
As per MMAFighting:
UFC president Dana White told reporters Wednesday at an appearance before a Mets game at Citifield in New York that he has yet to talk financial specifics with Mayweather’s side. But they do plan on presenting an even split as a proposal.
“We haven’t even got there yet,” White said. “We haven’t even talked percentages yet. … Floyd can think whatever, but the machine that the UFC has and Conor McGregor alone is a machine by himself. I think that 50-50 is pretty fair.”
