Dana White Believes Conor McGregor Might Retire After Floyd Mayweather Fight
Conor McGregor is looking to make an insane amount of money in his potential upcoming fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr, so much so that many people believe that he may never fight again.
UFC president spoke to Snoop Dogg in an interview with GGN News and told the famous rapper that the thought of McGregor never coming back to the UFC after the Mayweather fight has creeped into his mind.
“Let me tell you what. The other problem is if this thing goes down, Conor could make anywhere from 60 to 70 million ,” “I mean, how do you come back again and fight for 8, 9, 10 million bucks?”
“I think he does realize the uniqueness of the opportunity. He’s a smart kid, but he may never fight again,” “In the fight business, you gotta be hungry. You gotta be hungry. It’s hard to get up and get punched in the face every day when you’ve got $75 million in the bank.”
McGregor and the UFC have already agreed to terms that would allow the UFC lightweight champion to fight Mayweather in a boxing match. Now it’s up to Mayweather to agree to financial terms of the deal so the fight can be greenlit.
If White is to believed, McGregor is looking to make 5-6 fights worth of money in just one night.
