The 40-year-old Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) made it perfectly clear once the Mayweather-McGregor drama began late last year that he had no interest whatsoever in facing McGregor in an MMA match.
As per British publication Sun, McGregor, who now possess the UFC lightweight championship, could be paid $100 million for just showing up to the fight. The interest already generated by the fight is extraordinary and the crossing of the disciplines of fighting and MMA is forecasted to pull in a record number of views as well as live attendance.
