Well that’s a turn of events.
For the first time since the possibility of a mega fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather has been raised, UFC President Dana White has revealed he would be open to the idea.
Speaking on “The Herd”, the UFC boss offered both McGregor and Mayweather $25 million each as well as a portion of PPV for the fight to take place under the UFC banner.

While the offer is no doubt a low figure for both the names involved, it’s certainly a change of attitude from a man who said the bout would “never happen.”
