Mayweather and McGregor Negotiating $500 Million UFC Fight

People knew that Mayweather was going to beat McGegor in a boxing match in their heart of hearts.

Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are reportedly in talks over a sensational MMA rematch potentially worth $500million (£360m).

The two fighters came face-to-face in the boxing ring last August when the undefeated former world champion stopped his foe in the tenth round in Las Vegas. Even McGregor cited patches of fatigue that he needs to overcome.

In two videos, a barefoot Mayweather is entering an octagon cage, which is widely used by the UFC and other MMA companies, and shaking out a few moves.

'People will tune in to see Mayweather get stopped by Conor McGregor and it won't affect his boxing record.

Bisping added: 'You take him down you pass guard and you elbow the f*** out of his face in about 35 seconds, you fight a boxer [like Mayweather] you take him down'. If he does fight in the UFC, it's going to be against Conor McGregor.

McGregor is believed to have made $100 million total for that fight when you include salary and sponsors, while Mayweather hinted at making $400 million. Davies believes that the enormous payday potentially could make this fight a reality.

"I think it's going to happen, and I think it will be a three-, four-, five-hundred million dollar fight again."

Still considering the gaudy amount of money the boxing match between Mayweather and McGregor made past year, it's impossible to ignore the possibility of a rematch happening.

The Notorious hasn't fought in the UFC since 2016, when he won the lightweight title off Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205. If it is booked then there's a good chance that this fight would break MMA's pay-per-view records.

If you recall, leading into their first bout, Mayweather stated that this would serve as his retirement fight, which would leave him with a ideal 50-0 pro-boxing record. A losing record in MMA will have no effect on his boxing record.
