    McGregor vs Diaz 2 Purse: Dana White stated that it was hard to negotiate a rematch with Nate Diaz as he demanded higher purse and also refuse to fight on any other weight than 165lbs. In the first bout Nate Diaz got a guaranteed purse of $500,000 plus the $100,000 winning bonus and he has negotiated improved financial terms for the rematch taking his guaranteed earning to $1million same as McGregor.

    Now both fighters McGregor and Diaz will make $1 million guaranteed and there won’t be any win bonus in the rematch. However Conor McGregor will be making alot more than that with his tier based PPV share contract with UFC, depending on the PPV numbers he is expected to clear around $8 to $10 million from his nights work against Diaz.

    Purses in MMA are still ridiculously low compared to boxing. There was a 20 million fight purse for Canelo vs Cotto last november, that's 10 times more than for Conor vs Nate 2.

    Then find someone who's willing to pay every fucking guy on the roster 200 + 200

    A sport that has been around for 200 years pays more?

    Meltzer said Conor doesn't get a PPV share, just one huge amount like he would have got at 200.

    Boxing pays more? I wish somebody had told me that sooner.

    LOL at McGregor delusional fans claiming that he's the biggest star in combat sports. Miguel Cotto wouldn't get out of bed for a 1 million purse.

    Boxing has way more organizations and promoters so is normal that they pay way more. Very intelligent from Nate asking for the same purse.

    Boxing also pays the lower end guys basically nothing, only a few fighters make a real comfortable living off of it.

    Earning more doesn`t mean you are bigger as a star.

    Not really, except if you think "a few" is like a hundred.

    You don't understand mma pay at all and ppv percentage. Nate is going to make millions and Conor likely 15-20 million for this fight.

    Miguel Cotto is a bigger star than McGregor by any criteria. Puerto Rico man, he's a huge star. Proud to be born Boricua

    They don't get that much PPV percentage. Conor is not making 15-20 millions that's a story you can tell little children in Ireland and Nate is "going to make millions" as in 2 millions max.

    Also if you think Conor is getting only 1 million per fight you should stop posting because you're a moron.

    Yes they do, it was all broken down years ago with the whole Randy Couture lawsuit. If this ppv does 1.5-2 million buys then he is going to make that much money.

    Since I quoted this

    However Conor McGregor will be making alot more than that with his tier based PPV share contract with UFC, depending on the PPV numbers he is expected to clear around $8 to $10 million from his nights work against Diaz.

    It should be quite clear that I don't think that. Maybe you're a moron who knows

    That's not what he made. It was rumored he made 13 million against Aldo and that did 1.2 million buys, 196 against Nate did 1.5 million buys.
