    That is the good thing about boxing they set the purse their is not bullshit show money and win money then 3 dollars per PPV buy. Whatever Conor agrees to is on him and if he is not happy with the number don't sign on the dotted line it is that simple

    Conor is better off just defending his belt. While he'll be making more money for the floyd fight, I don't think it's worth the embarrassment. Plus as stated, greedy Dana will be taking a cut. If he defends a few times, I'm sure the money would equal to a fight with floyd.

    dumb argument, the point is Conor is the one that sold more ppv on average and is more famous.

    Ah ok. I initially only read your post. I now see in the article, Iole lazily says:

    That doesn’t include the other revenue streams, but combined, they would be far less than the pay-per-view revenues.

    I wonder what "far less" means. If the PPV revenues are $420 million like he says, $150 million in other revenue could still qualify as "far less".

    I guess I'm just disagreeing with your "So best case he splits 54.4 with uncle Dana and co. " Maybe add $20 million on top of that from other revenue sources.

    I think McGregor would be happy with $20 mil or $30 mil. Maybe he will get close to $50 mil, hard to tell.

    Maybe he could make more in the rematch if he wins the first one.

    Conor and mayweather will sell even if it isnt a legitimiate fight. why because thats all the media cares bout, its what dana gets asked about every single time.

    Conor would get much more respect from haters if he would just defend. I actually think he could reign for a good while, and this is coming from someone who wants Conor to lose.

    With 300k PPV buys in boxing you still earn more then 1m PPV buys in the UFC, that's just plain fucking sad, slave owner Dana on point with his slaves doe.
