We want $20 million to fight Conor McGregor — Nate Diaz coach

McGregor, the UFC's 155-pound champion who was making his professional boxing debut, lost to Mayweather by TKO in the 10th round of their junior middleweight fight on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

"Because Mayweather let him (McGregor win some rounds)", De La Hoya said on The MMA Hour.

Hopefully Diaz realizes that and takes a little bit less to make a lot more.

Yes, Michael, it is. "This is fighting where you can only use your hands". It has been almost a year since that fight and McGregor has still not defended either of those belts. "We always try to put on the biggest and most exciting fights". Mayweather earned a guaranteed $100 million. If that was a boxer, you'd say it was an 'outclassed' job, a mismatch.

"Conor showed some stuff in there that was pretty cool". It wasn't even sold out at all. "But what happened is what we thought would happen".

The long term ramifications of the mega fight are yet to be seen as is the official numbers, but there's no doubt that August 26 will remain a day forever remembered in sports history.

"He was just out of his depth".

In a video shared by UFC Hall of Famer Urijah Faber on social media, White can be heard speaking to Snoop Dogg following Tuesday night's Dana White Contender Series on UFC Fight Pass. "I didn't ask for the rematch at a lower weight, I asked for the rematch at the exact same weight", McGregor said.

If Mayweather/McGregor truly did 6.5 million North American PPV buys, it's likely that Floyd will earn $350 million and Conor will earn $150 million. The UFC's championship matches feature five 5-minute rounds. He's not a boxer. "I'll tell you that right now. If Conor doesn't get stopped by me - and I'm a guy who doesn't get a lot of stoppages - I should get penalised at least a portion of my purse just for not stopping the guy".

"It brought the whole world's attention to boxing and it seems people are pleased with what they have seen". Appearing on SiriusXM Rush, he delivered this review of McGregor: "I think he did great". Contenders such as Khabib Nurmagomedov, Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee have made their cases known, with the latter two facing off for the interim 155lb. belt at UFC 216 in October.
