UFC Conor McGregor on Floyd Mayweather
“I hear the boy (Mayweather) talking. The leak came out, it was him that leaked the rumor. I said, ‘He gets $100 million, I get $7 million. That’s a pay cut to me. I don’t take pay cuts. I thought boxing is where the money is at.’ The $7 million is absolutely laughable. He’s talking $100 million, I’m also talking $100 million. I’m 27 years of age and I’m just about halfway to a $100 million contract. At 27 years of age, Floyd Mayweather was on Oscar De La Hoya’s undercard. So, compare that. He needs me, I don’t need him. That’s the truth of it. Who else can he fight? He fights someone else in the boxing realm and all of a sudden the pay goes from $100 million to $15 million. So, he needs me. If he wants to talk, we can talk. But it’s me who is in control here.”
