    I've seen a lot of sherdogers say conor will be forced to take whatever the ufc gives him.... I disagree.

    Also that he will retire after this if he makes enough.... again this is only true if he makes more than the 25-30 % of ufc cut I've seen on here.

    On the undisputed Shandon puts out 5M ppv buys at $100 a pop. Just going on the numbers that's a $500 million dollar fight. Says Floyd camp would probably win out on percentages 60-40 as well.

    Numbers breakdown based on the numbers discussed both on here and the undisputed.

    Ufc- 140M
    CONOR-60M
    Floyd camp-300M

    Why would conor take this cut.... he'd obviously be screwed at a bit more than 10% of total ppv money. Also $60 million wouldn't be enough for him to ride into the sunset anyways adjusted for what he makes currently plus taxes. ADD ON.... Maybe at 120M

    You really think this fight would outdraw Mayweather vs. Pacquiao?

    In terms of UFC/Conor, that is horrific. It should be:

    UFC - $60m
    Conor - $140m

    Agreed. But we both know that won't happen.... how but 50/50 and 100 a piece though. That's only way its worth it imo

    Maybe just because of the difference in skills. But like skip said conor has 20 pounds, 12 yrs and hits like a MAC TRUCK. He might have a chance.... 25% maybe

    Maybe. Just because casuals bring the ppvs. And casuals love conor... also the white vs black superhero thing and boxing being huge with black people.

    Not counting all that as that typically only helps promoters, so in this case not conor. But you just made more of my point on why he wouldn't take 30%

    I said from the beginning this fight would happen because from floyd, dana, and even conor (getting badly beat up) standpoint this was easy money. Let the trashtalkers sell the fight knowing that floyd is expected to win easily but make 100''s of millions each anyway.

    He does not have the speed or footwork to touch Floyd

    Ppv cable companies keep 50% from what I understand so if they did gross $500 million off the ppv alone cable companies get $250M and other $250 mil gets split between Mayweather/The goat/ufc
