"Dana White makes official offer for Floyd vs Conor fight (video)"


          

so if you haven't kept up with the latest round of foolishness ... Floyd was on First Take on ESPN and says that he'd offer Conor $15M and he'd take $100M for a fight. Floyd says that he's tried to make the fight happen but it hasn't happened. he claims that $15M is generous for Conor because he never made that much before. Dana White was on Colin Cowherd today on FS1 and says that Floyd has never made any offer and hasn't talked to anyone. Also he's wrong about how much Conor has made on fights. Dana says that Floyd's last fight with Manny did around 300,000 buys on PPV while Conor's last couple fights have done 1.3M and 1.5M buys respectively. so Dana's official offer (since he's the actual promoter and Conor works for him) to Floyd is to do $25M each fight and then workout the PPV split after that. he predicts that the fight could possibly generate around 2M buys on PPV. Dana says he'd also stack the card with a bunch of other good fights to make it worth the buy for fans.

here's Floyd on First Take ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3TGGEt-m-E

Conor was an amature boxer so it's going to be 20oz gloves
Jan 13th 2017

Dana kept saying it wouldnt happen
Jan 13th 2017

How would either sport make this an appealing match?
Jan 13th 2017

huh? everyone wants to see if Connor can knock out Floyd
Jan 13th 2017

Dana White said Floyd only had 350K PPV his last fight
Jan 13th 2017

Dana is essentially negotiating for himself/UFC vs floyd
Jan 13th 2017

Conor gets a cut of the ppv
Jan 16th 2017
14
Conor had LOADED undercards while Floyd had no name guys & Berto
Jan 16th 2017

      that's because outside of maybe 5 boxers everyone is a no namer
Jan 17th 2017
18
           Pac wants a rematch, it's not like Floyd doesn't have other options
Jan 17th 2017
25
                the casual fan ainti falling for that one again, at least not for $100
Jan 17th 2017
29
                50% less would still be 2 mill in PPV buys
Jan 17th 2017
36
                of course he does, because he'd get paid off of it. He'd lose again tho.

what Dana said was that since that Mayweather v Pacquiao fight was so bad no one wants to watch Floyd anymore and he no longer has the draw that he thinks he does. Dana said that Floyd's LAST fight did 300,000 buys, not the Mayweather v Pacquiao fight. my mistake in the way i wrote it.

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

but Dana is saying that since he's the promoter he'll put some other fights on the card to fill it out and make it worth the buy for the fans.

But there was too much money to be made to say no to. If McGregor gets beat which he should, he still has enough of a brand following as a MMA fighter. Not liek people will instantly stop watching his mma fights.


On rthe other hand if he wins or even is competitive....Not only does that raise Mcgregors profile, it also legitimizes MMA a bit more.

Danas playing with house money.

I have no idea what drugs or great white hope dope you would need to be on to think for a second that Connor McGreggor could beat Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match.

On the bright side, at least these chuckleheads have stopped calling for Floyd to beat up Ronda.

and this is why he needs to take the offer.

White bragged about Connor having 1.2 mill and 1.3. mill ppv's his last 2 fights.

which means Connor is getting screwed since his highest guarantee was 3 million dollars.

shut up already, damn

14. "Conor gets a cut of the ppv"
In response to Reply # 8


          

Conor makes most of his money from the ppv and sponsors and not the guaranteed purse. that's how UFC is different than boxing. Floyd prides himself on how much HE gets but the other fighters aren't getting nearly what he does. UFC spreads the money across the whole card. it's not perfect, but everyone gets a cut. remember UFC cards have a TON of fights on them. sometimes there's multiple championship fights on one card. if this Floyd v Conor fight generates the buys they think it could Floyd could totally make his $100M he's looking for. the fact that he doesn't think Conor deserves what he gets is the problem.

from a money perspective this is the jackpot.

You get 1 shot for the stars to align right on something like this. I get it from the UFC fan perspective it sucks. But there are a lot of good fighters with or without a belt who I enjoy despite Conor.

In response to Reply # 13


  

          

1) I personally don't care about this fight compared to the match-ups McGregor has left in MMA.

2) It does a disservice to the guys currently in McGregor's division since they now have to fight for interim belts rather than the real thing.

I imagine the WMG folks that plunked down that hefty price tag for UFC ownership wanting to do something to get some quick and highly profitable return for their investment. As much as I don't want to see this go down, I could see the UFC owners having great desire to pull the trigger. I have to imagine Floyd and his handlers are aware of this as well and can manipulate them to his own advantage.

Especially if White is talking a $25 million payout for each of them. Besides that being a pretty laughably small payout for Floyd, what is McGregor bringing to the table that he'd be on equal footing?

that, to me at least, seems irrefutable

if not for this hypothetical matchup of Conor vs Floyd, no one is talking about Floyd right now. I do agree with Dana White in seeing that he left an awful taste in people's mouths after that Pac fight. Floyd knows what he's doing, fanning the flames to keep his own brand poppin. But the truth is the Conor McGregor brand in 2017 is far more vibrant than Floyd's. Floyd would be hard pressed to crack a million buys against any old boxer right today.

Seriously, he's fought everyone he can fight at this point. It's not his fault that the remaining field of boxers is relatively weak.

Floyd's been getting huge payouts and doing solid PPV #s for years. Why would he come down and let McGregor be on equal footing as him?

In response to Reply # 28


  

          

for easiest possible work



I mean this could net him (after PPV buys) a huge payday
while being the easiest fight of any current boxers who are actually contenders... because well McGregor isnt a pro boxer.

In his mind he lets the hype build and he gets to beat up an amateur boxer and keep building his pockets, his brand, his legend, and his hate (which is part of his brand).


maybe this also leads Floyd somewhere else into MMA promotion or something, who knows. For dana this isnt just a money grab via McGregor. if he gets to promote the card he can put some of his exciting prospects on the card and with the old school boxing only guys watching, this gives him a stage to showcase what he has to those people who otherwise wouldnt bother with a McGregor fight.

In response to Reply # 24


  

          

he's out here now talking about it.

Floyd basically already g-checked the entire UFC by offering McGreggor 15 mill and saying he'd take a hundred.

Dana is just trying to milk it for publicity, while I'm sure privately doing everything he can to make sure this never happens because he knows McGreggor would lose in humiliating fashion while he wouldn't get paid.

None of this is really worth talking about beyond comedic/shit-talking purposes.

Dana did this same bullshit with Floyd talking about Ronda Rousey.

He knows he can't get money by actually partnering with Floyd, because Floyd doesn't need him, but he's fine with talking slick in the media to get the UFC name out there by trading on Floyd's fame.

Mayweathers been keeping this afloat publicly a lot more than Dana.
Dana originally shut it down.
If mayweather wants this to happen whether it's at 1 cent or 100 million, Dana will make money off of it because of his contract with mcgregor.


The UFC will be fine without Floyd just like Floyd will be fine without the UFC


This is the opportunity for both sides to get a quick, easy pay day and all make more money.

*pats head*

Google all the dumb shit Dana was saying about how Ronda Rousey was gonna hurt Floyd.

Floyd is keeping it a float being Floyd.

Dana is talking about in the press, because he's using it for his own purposes.

He's not making any of Floyd's money, which is the real end, was my point.

Floyd doesn't care what part of McGreggor's much smaller take he proposed Dana White wants to take any more, in fact, far less, than he did Bob Arum with Pac-Man.
>
>The UFC will be fine without Floyd just like Floyd will be
>fine without the UFC
>
And Floyd made more money on his fight than Dana probably paid his entire stable last year.

That's the advantage Dana has in operating his own little monopoly in that niche sport.

It just doesn't extend outside of into boxing or to Floyd.
>
>This is the opportunity for both sides to get a quick, easy

It's about as worthy of sincere discussion as Thunderlips the Ultimate Male verus Rocky Balboa.

Ronda had some of you dudes believing she'd beat Floyd - even as recently as AFTER her most recent second knockout.

And it's not even close. We can debate how long Conor could go in a boxing match. Floyd has a matter of seconds in the cage at best. Floyd (or any other boxer) ain't dumb enough to enter the cage so his only option is to make it a boxing match where he clearly has the advantage. You gotta give Conor props for even wanting to box. He'll fight anyone anywhere.

In response to Reply # 40


  

          

We're not talking about Floyd in an MMA about, we're talking about Conor in a boxing match.

I'm as big an MMA fan as they come - train Muay Thai 3x a week, going to the Brooklyn card, never miss a show - but I'm not delusional enough to think Conor would be a legitimate threat to Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match.

And as much as I'd love to see Floyd get waxed in the Octagon, I'm not certain he doesn't beat the majority of guys at his weight. The Cruzs, Dillashaws, and Aldos embarrass him sure, but there's a lot of goof balls on these FS1 cards who can't strike or move to save their lives. Just cause a guy can wrestle well doesn't necessarily mean they'd outright demolish a guy who is probably the greatest defensive boxer ever.

In response to Reply # 42


          

I think a win for Conor would be going the distance with Floyd. I don't believe Floyd will (or can) knock him out. Floyd will do what he normally does which is defend and not get hit while scoring points. He'll get the win with ease but Conor will be in no real danger.

The only way I see success for Floyd (or any boxer) in the UFC is if some fighter dares to stand up and trade with him. Otherwise he doesn't have a chance to make it halfway through the first round. Until I see otherwise, all boxers will end up like James Toney did against Randy. All the defensive boxing in the world won't save you when your opponent isn't boxing.

Randy Couture used to maul HOF MMA fighters let alone a washed up boxer. World-class MMA fighter have been beat by kick-boxers in the octagon but I don't remember a male kick-boxer outpointing a world champion boxer.

Floyd doesn't care about MMA, never has to watch, learn
or entertain that sport. He's doing McGregor a favor,
giving McGregor a payday he could never imagine, setting
up McGregor's family for centuries.

The only reason its not a knockout is because Floyd decides
for it not to be a knockout.

McGregor would lose badly to Floyd's sparring partners.

Just stop.

In response to Reply # 72


  

          


Canelo Alvarez is 20 lbs heavier and his head and
body were getting snapped back by Floyd's punches.

IF Floyd didn't punch HARD, people would simply walk
through the punches, pin Floyd, and beat him. They
DON'T because Floyd's punches are sharp and violent.

To suggest otherwise is to never have thrown or taken
a punch.


EVERY ELITE boxer CAN punch hard. Some just DON'T throw KO
punches because they'd PREFER to not fight that way. You CAN'T
be an elite fighter and throw punches that don't HURT. It
doesn't work that way.

Floyd may not knock McGregor out, but that's his own
choosing. McGregor is maybe as good as a bad Floyd
sparring partner. Floyd could break his nose, and
probably fairly easily.

In response to Reply # 73


          

I never said Floyd can't punch hard or hasn't knocked anyone out. However, lately he has been more technical and this is why I see McGregor going 12 rounds.

It will be a show.


shut up already, damn

In response to Reply # 82


  

          

Conner got outboxed by Nate Diaz. It may not be a one punch KO, but more like a TKO because Conner just won't be able to get out of the way.

No hate either, I'm a fan of what Conner has done in the MMA.

Everyone with common sense knows that it's a cash grab
built on the back of insecure white people

White racists think McGregor really wants to win a
boxing belt, because HE'S BORN TO FIGHT AND CAN
BEAT THAT LITTLE SISSY FLOYD!!!

If Floyd pulls this off he retires as the GOAT of his era as far as money and mad making. Ending Conor's whatever it is he's doing AND going out undefeated would be the coup of the century.

I could see him getting a DQ or McGregor tossing his ass across the ring. Just enough to make people think Conor has a shot if they fought again.

If people didnt care about Connor, this wouldnt possibly be a top 3 Mayweather payday.

If they set up a Floyd vs Khabib or Tony Ferguson or Mighty Mouse or Frankie Edgar or Nate Diaz boxing match that shit would get like 0.5 buys

Conor does not look like the type of person that Vince could broach the idea of working house shows in Cleveland 10 times a year. MMA is lowkey safer than wrasslin anyway so why would he take the risk? Conor comes from nothing so retirement is his best bet. Just walk away with your 20 mill from this fight and live cheap as fuck forever off your name.

>i mean, it's the biggest stars in two combat sports.

a) McGregor is 1/10th as accomplished an MMA fighter
as Floyd is a boxer, so their relative excellence
comparison is a laugher

b) Nobody with a brain in their head thinks even a good
boxing MMA fighter can beat an elite boxer at boxing

The entire fight is built on the hope of a bad ass white
guy beating an arrogant, wealthy black guy who is incredibly
good at his job.

That's it.

Conor's last fight did 1.6 million buys, so he's got an audience. He didn't sell that much based entirely on 'cism. A lot of people were tuning in hoping to see him get his ass beat.

Maybe people are tuning in to watch Conor get thrashed in a spectacle. It's a freak show. People gonna watch a freakshow.

It's a stupid fight, and 'cism will help up the numbers to record territory (if it happens), but there are other reasons, albeit stupid reasons to watch.

This is it. Seriously.

A person I know asked if I want to come over to watch the fight. I said WTF are you fucking stupid? Do you just hate having money?

He said, oh I just like the spectacle, I guess. Good reason to invite people over and make wings, should be funny.


I was literally baffled. Cannot imagine just tossing my money out the window like that but we live in a country where people pay money to go to Stitches shows, elected an insane reality show host president, and the XFL set TV viewershipnrecords when it first aired.

We live in Rome. No one expects the slave to beat the lion, they just want to be entertained. To be part of the spectacle

91. "This is a Mayweather Promotions event."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Floyd approves everything and I hope it goes down without a hitch. Am I the only one worried Conor is going to pull some stunt like elbow Floyd if he's losing or refuse to shake hands after the match?

I am all for this event happening and Floyd hopefully coming away with the W and retiring successfully again.

Conor has already made history cementing himself as a legend win, lose, or draw due to being destitute five years ago and now working his way to center of the combat sport universe. Dude didn't have a pot to piss in but now he's fighting Floyd Mayweather in the biggest boxing spectacle in years. Keywords to note here: "boxing spectacle".

or some kinda of MMA move, he's not nearly that stupid. i'm quite sure that it's in the contract that if he does that he'll lose all the money. Conor ain't that stupid and/or out of control to do something like that. Conor is a pro fighter who's had other fights like jiu jitsu matches for instance. pretty sure he knows what he's doing. i'm fully expecting that Floyd will put that idea out there *just in case* the very outside possibility exists that Conor catches him with something. i'm sure that Floyd (and his lackeys and fans) will claim that Conor faked a kick or some other kind of move as an excuse.


i fully expect the lead up to this fight to be pure mayhem and foolishness because i can't imagine the fight itself to live up to the hype.

is if Floyd decides to clinch with Conor and Conor does something MMA related in the clinch (for instance throw an elbow) out of fatigue and/or muscle memory.

as much as these guys train, i don't see him losing control. i do wonder what would be allowed that could work in Conor's favor though. what is he allowed to do within the rules to break a clinch? also are Superman Punches allowed in boxing? that'd be amazing to see if Floyd could defend something like that.

Would only make sense if the return on all his investments is greater than the interest he will pay on his taxes. If it's mostly stock , he can quickly cash out with that though.

How much of a boss is Mayweather for this fight in terms of ownership and such? From what I understand, he is the main promoter for this match, correct? Does that mean in a sense he is Floyd's boss in terms of paying him? Or is he Dana's boss? Also, who is above Floyd in terms of the business arrangements? Is it strictly Showtime?

http://www.foxsports.com/ufc/story/floyd-mayweather-vs-conor-mcgregor-will-not-be-co-promotion-with-ufc-061417

The UFC signed off on Conor McGregor facing Floyd Mayweather on Aug. 26 but that will end the promotion’s involvement in arguably the biggest fight in combat sports history.

According to UFC president Dana White, Showtime will handle pay-per-view for Mayweather vs. McGregor including all distribution and production for the event.

White said that the UFC will do some shoulder programming for the bout including some typical fight week programming, but ultimately the pay-per-view is left up to Showtime.

White seemed to embrace the plan with Showtime handling the bulk of the work when it comes to Mayweather vs. McGregor and the huge promotional blitz that will follow for the next two months until the bout takes place.

White promised that the fight will be heavily marketing on UFC programming but the show itself will only be produced and distributed through Showtime.

“I’m going to promote through all of my inventory and all that I’m doing, but as far as actually producing TV shows and doing all that type of stuff, Showtime is the exclusive but they’ve been kind and opened the window and let us have some fun and do some things, too,” White said.

The same goes for the actual pay-per-view card and that includes the broadcast team for the fight. Showtime sports general manager Stephen Espinoza said that there have been no concrete plans for the card just yet, but those are decisions that will be made in the coming weeks.

As far as the actual card goes, Mayweather Promotions and Showtime will build the undercard, which will all be boxing with no crossover with the UFC.

Espinoza promised that they have a lot of ideas to not only fill out the undercard with quality fights, but they want to turn Aug. 26 into a destination date for fight fans who will be watching Mayweather battle McGregor in the main event.

“The undercard in terms of the televised undercard and pay-per-view will absolutely be a straight boxing card but it’s a big card,” Espinoza said. “There might be some interesting things that we do in the prelims. That’s something that we’re going to come together on and really hope to make it an entertaining day.

“Not just three or four fights, but an entertaining afternoon and evening of legitimate fights all around.”

In response to Reply # 111


  

          

between Conor and Floyd, Conor wasn't even involved and it was strictly between Dana White and Mayweather's team. Since it appears that the UFC has no hands in terms of promoting the event officially, that makes Mayweather and his team Dana and Conor's boss in a sense, no? Just asking because that adds another level of mockery to the whole trash talking between Floyd and Conor IMO, on top of the actual skills involved in the match.

Conor seems to have started his own production company as he had his name on the banner behind them. no idea what any of that means though. it would seem that ultimately Showtime is in charge.

116. "RE: no idea how any of that works"
In response to Reply # 115


          

Think of it like this:

The production company is responsible for figuring out all of the logistics of the fight (who's going to fight, where they're going to fight, who's going to televise the fight, marketing, promotion, etc). With that responsibility comes control over how and how much everyone involved gets paid.

Floyd, Showtime and UFC all have the capability to act as a production company for a fight night of this scale. I don't think Conor does because he's never had to do much more than be colorful and fight bc UFC does the heavy lifting for him.

If he's got a production company now, I bet it's mostly to handle some of his own promotion. He's under contract with UFC though, so I don't know how much autonomy he could really have.

Since this is a boxing card, I'd think that Floyd and Showtime are ultimately sharing most of the production duties, with UFC taking more of a backseat role. I'm sure UFC is getting a cut somehow, since they "made" Conor and he's under contract with them, but it doesn't sound like they're in control of much in this fight.

Yeah, I saw that Conor logo when I was browsing the promo stuff earlier this morning. I have a feeling that entity exists so Conor can get a large or maybe even all of the sponsorship money he'll get from the logos he'll have on his shorts. It would be pretty sad if the UFC somehow gets a cut of the money similar to how they did before the Reebok deal.

If I'm not mistaken, Conor did an interview that was available via PPV through his production company. It occurred roughly a year or two ago and Ariel Helwani interviewed him somewhere in Europe.

The only fight I want to see right now is prime Iron Mike in a locked room- not a ring- with these two idiots.

That was the dumbest thing I’ve seen in ages.

This would have been an embarrassing train wreck on a WWE show, let alone a professional fight from two of the best in their respective fields.

There’s spectacle and then there’s whatever the hell that was.
