    Are you retarded?! You don't even know my point. Smh.


    Ppv numbers will be a few million vs ________________ on free TV, globally. Do you know why the super bowl, Olympics, world cup, etc are all free?

    You do realize they the UFC will touch the money before Conor right?

    So the second he can even evoke the Ali act in this hypothetical situation to MMA is the second the UFC sues him and the money is frozen for years during litigation.

    I think you guys are underestimating how dumb casuals are and what they are willing to spend $60 on.

    Ronda vs Bethe in Brazil on a garbage card sold 900K PPVs.

    Dana managed to convince the whole word that Ronda could beat up Mayweather. You don't think he could convince everyone that Conor can KO Mayweather and you have to tune in to watch it?

    Pretty sure this fight would break PPV records (among other ones?).
    Doesn't matter how good or bad Conor's boxing is.

    He's famous. Mayweather is famous.
    They can market them (together and/or individually) in a LOT of ways.

    I'd say 80%+ of, each MMA and Boxing, fans would watch this and I think I'm being modest with the %.

    He hasn't signed , Mayweather already made his demands and now looks like Conor is too scared to sign

    The only thing that I concede is that you have mush for brains.

    You sure got me
    Now back on topic , Dana went on live tv offering 25mill and 25 mill

    Mayweather countered and won the money side by asking minimum 100 million with Dana confirming that is what Mayweather will get

    Insider information was released that the hold up is Conor , who is not happy with his percentage

    That's just another way to duck ,

    Pac vs Mayweather - 4,600,000 ppv buys
    PPV REVENUE - $410 million

    Conor can draw 1.5million buys himself you saying Floyd cannot do the same?

    I say bare minimum it's good for 3 million buys with the buzz and both sides promoting, the trash talk alone has people tuning in... I saw we are closer to 4 million buys

    Wait...

    A few months back $1B was the number being thrown around. Which I claimed was insane.

    What a fuckin joke. There is/was no fucking way this was EVER making that money.

    The thing would most likely barely make more than a Conor UFC ppv. And only would by charging more money. Which is why I've NEVER seen it happening. There is no real incentive for the UFC to allow this fight.

    Not if Conor was going to get $50-100M.

    Ridiculous...

    Boxing die hards don't give a fuck about this. Most mma fans don't take it seriously. Ppl will watch...via stream. But, 4M ppl are not paying $100 to watch this exhibition. Get fucking real, buddeh.

    Are you kidding?

    At least 3 million PPV buys at 100.00, with the provider cut at 2/3, as Mayweather has negotiated before. And honestly i could easily see 4 million buys. But at 3 million it NETS 200 million to the fighters alone.

    Now add in Internattional TV deals, which will be considerable.

    Add the Gate, 50 million??

    Massive advertsing...

    Its 300 MILLION easy, possibly more to be split up after promotional expenses.

    The build up alone will generate a ton of money.

    They will suck every dollar out of the whole process, not just the fight.
