UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor is going to be making his professional boxing debut against Floyd Mayweather in just over a weeks time.
When it is all said and done, the MMA champion expects to make over $100 million for the fight.
“I will clear the $100 million mark. 100-percent,” McGregor told MMA Fighting. “If it clears Pacquiao numbers, which it will, which in my mind it already has, it will be $100 million. Factor the gates, factor the merchandise sales, factor all the pies that I have my hand in. I will clear the $100 million mark.”
Mayweather made similar claims a few weeks back, but the difference is that the boxing legend is expecting to make over $300 million for the super fight.
McGregor doesn’t know what is next after the super fight, but he will worry about it after counting all of his money.
“It’s been all me, and that’s it, and I will collect every single dot on this. I mean on everything, the food, the beverages, the gate, the pay-per-view, the whole lot. When this fight is done, I will sit back, I will collect my show money, and then I’ll go start counting everything else and getting into that $100 million range and taking what I’m owed. And then we will see what’s next after that,” says McGregor.
Conor McGregor versus Floyd Mayweather takes place on Saturday, August 26 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
