    I don't get where all this money is coming from. Are that many people really going to pay $100 to watch the greatest boxer of the modern era fight a high amateur-level boxer? I just don't see it.

    Apparently not , Dana needs to sign the contract and looks like Conor is ducking


    But the fight would be casual friendly big time easy sell

    The company who will earn the revenue from it will pony it off.

    Which means Showtime would pay for most of it, and possibly UFC a small amount of it. Its essentially a gamble if the fight flops

    [​IMG] This is where Floyds 100 million is coming from. Conors 100 million is coming from no where because he aint getting payed that because he aint worth nowhere near that. He better go back to those 3 million dollar paychecks from the UFC. The fight aint happening because Conor is delusional as fuck and asking for way to much.

    Sponsors, gate revenue, revenue from video used on television, merchandise and whatever else.

    If mcgregor is supposedly receiving 100 million than Merryfeather is get at least 150 million.

    Conor makes at least 10 million every fight, unless you believe that shit Floyd posted on Twitter.

    Its obviously going to be a profitable fight but i think people are overestimating how popular this fight is. I havent heard anybody talking about how they " want" this fight. Im not paying for this in a million years. Its a "scam" with the sole purpose of making floyd and conor a ton of money, good for them but i couldnt care less. Im scrolling threw it the day after on youtube

    You are obviously smarter than all of the multi-millionaires/billionaires involved.

    They wont. This wont be the biggest PPV ever, it wont come close to Mayweather/Pac. 3 Million buys max. It's a con.
