Conor McGregor Lands Spot On Time 100 List Of Influential People

This is also why he might just be allowed to break from his current UFC contract and battle boxing great Floyd Mayweather in the boxing ring.

'It depends on how much the fight sells, ' White said. "If the fight sells as well as I think it can, Floyd makes a little north of $100 [million] and Conor makes $75 [million]", White explained, as quoted by Fox Sports.

'The Conor side, we're good on the Conor side.

That announcement looks set to be a boxing match with Mayweather in what has been branded the most high-profile fight of all-time.

Speaking on "The Herd" show with Colin Cowherd on FOX Sports 1 yesterday, White revealed that he is nearly finished negotiating a deal with "The Notorious", but he still has to hammer out terms with Mayweather's advisors, who are led by Al Hayman.

McGregor, who is preparing for the birth of his first child, has yet to apply for a boxing license in the state of Nevada, something he needs to make 'The Billion Dollar Fight' happen. It really doesn't. Conor wants this thing really bad, and I've said it many times, the kid's stepped up and saved some big fights for me. "I'm in. I'll figure it out".

There's been a lot of talk about the fight purse, with White recently blasting Top Rank promoter Bob Arum for claiming that UFC was looking for an 80-20 split, should the fight go ahead.

Now you can see why McGregor said he's willing to wait out an entire year if needed, to make this fight happen.

Mayweather was guaranteed $100 million for his fight against Manny Pacquiao on May 2, 2015.

White has already raised his first unofficial offer to Mayweather by a significant amount.

White, speaking Wednesday to Colin Cowherd on FS1's "The Herd," projected potential paydays in nine figures for Mayweather and an unprecedented eight figures for McGregor. Mayweather quickly laughed off the proposal.

Anyway, the latest news on the fight to end all fights is that, according to White, McGregor could be getting a grip of money to take part in the match.

Then again, that's all based on this fight actually happening.
