Mayweather To Make $8 Mill PER Minute, McGregor To Have Largest Payday Ever By Any MMA Fighter
There are plenty of coins that will be made by boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. at his upcoming fight against UFC superstar Conor McGregor. Mayweather recently shared what his payday will potentially look like for the fight, claiming that he can make more than $300 MILLION, which would break down to more than $8 MILLION per minute in the ring. The Money Team leader states,
I mean, am I the highest-paid athlete out there? And just coming back? We not talking about no contract. We not talking about no contract for no 4 years, or no contract for no 5 years. I can do it in 36 minutes. $300 (million) or better. In 36 minutes.
Conor is expected to make around $100 million and while this figure is significantly less than Mayweather’s, it’ll be largest payday an MMA fighter has ever made.
