The big fight with Mayweather vs McGregor is coming up at the end of the month, August 26, but we all know they’re getting a huge check out of this, right?
Well according to TMZ, Mayweather may have revealed how much he is going to get paid after this fight. During a show on Showtime, he says he is the highest paid athlete:
“I mean, am I the highest-paid athlete out there? And just coming back? We not talking about no contract. We not talking about no contract for no 4 years, or no contract for 5 years. I can do it in 36 minutes. $300 million or better. In 36 minutes.”
Imagine this, he’s getting paid about $8 million PER MINUTE INSIDE THE RING!! I mean, I think I’m in the wrong profession here!
For McGregor, sources tells TMZ, he is roughly getting paid $100 million after this fight. He is going to get paid a lot more than he has when he was fighting in the UFC. Let’s just hope it doesn’t make him go crazy, since he will be getting paid a lot more.
