Conor expecting to earn more than $100 million in fight with Mayweather

Conor McGregor has run his own numbers on the Floyd Mayweather boxing match and expects it to earn him a nine figure amount.

Yesterday Dana White phoned in to FOX Sports and shared how much he estimated the purses would be for a Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather boxing match.

"It depends on how much the fight sells," White explained. "And if the fight sells as well as I think it can, Floyd makes a little north of $100 (million) and Conor makes $75 (million)."

Pretty good numbers, but Conor McGregor went onto Instagram today and gave his own figures on what he expected to make.

"Happy Thursday everyone, how's that 75 milli make your stomach feel?" he wrote. "It's actually 100+ milli if we go by the non conservative numbers the fight will actually do and that's not including my endorsements and business ventures. 28 years of age. Fresh c*nt. Doubt me now."

So the question is whether Dana White underestimated the number of pay-per-views Conor McGregor expects to sell, or if McGregor plans on getting a bigger piece of the fight pie than White is currently budgeting him at. While the two haven't sat down yet to hammer out the details on a fight deal, White told FOX Sports that McGregor wasn't the side that worried him regarding negotiations.

"Weíre good on the Conor side," he said. "I need to figure out the Mayweather side, and maybe it canít be ... maybe the Mayweather side canít be done. But weíll see. I promised Conor Iíd do everything I could to make this thing happen, so thatís what Iím going to do.Ē

Hard work is the only real PED.

Prospects -- Doo Hoo Choi, Ashlee Evans Smith, Mickey Gall, Sage Northcutt, Thomas Almeida, Yair Rodriguez, Lorenz Larkin, Robert Whittaker
