    I watched part of the interview last night and thought he meant the $80 Million estimate was for the whole year; fighting three times AND his other business deals.

    Don't be bitching

    Conor has proven to lie about pretty much everything

    He has no moral code

    None of us know the truth but I'm pretty sure Conor wasn't just talking about his purse and PPV cut, he has numerous sponsers and side businesses who he will also be factoring into his estimate, he's also probably basing it on some really high number of buys coz he's the type of guy who aims high.

    Fake it till you make it i guess. Nobody gave a shit about Mayweather but he kept talking, kept winning and eventually he started making the fake money he bragged about. Loud mouths who brag about $$$ and being the biggest draw attract morons that actually end up making them the biggest draw. Its a vicious cycle due to dipshits eating it up. Just look at Clown Boys fanbase. They'd have Khabib stripped or have the UFC make a brand new division just so their hero can be champ without fighting and beating the best JUST so he can make more $$$! You can't make this shit up! Well, Clown Boy can and his moron fans will make it reality.

    Lol, there’s no need to refute it the guy is just promoting himself, it’s ridiculous to actually analyze

    Conor getting 80M per fight.

    Fights 3 times this year and that is at least 240M from the UFC alone.

    Let’s see if Forbes agrees with that later this year.

    I am assuming it will include his Reebok deal. He just released the new sneaker as well.

    Lol what a typical leftist "fact check"

    Step 1: misrepresent the original claim
    Step 2: fact check your own misrepresentation rather than their claim
    Step 3: Leave out exculpatory/counter evidence
    Step 3: Profit

    Conor never said it was the UFC paying him that. He gets a purse, PPV points, and Reebok from them, but he has other business ventures all being impacted by this fight and obviously is counting them in his estimate of what the fight's going to pay out.

    Disagree all you want on whether he can make $80M from this fight, but do so with the actual research one would need to actually do to counter it properly

    Your numbers for their guarantee money are spot on my friend. They do get a portion of all buys over that 500k mark, but still, Conor is lying.

    Why are we still posting about a SJW MMA site that employed a pedophile for years?
