Video: Floyd Mayweather responds to Dana White’s $25 million offer to fight Conor McGregor: ‘He’s a f—-ing comedian’

Sorry to keep bothering you with this nonsense, but we are the mixed martial arts (MMA) media and this is what we do.

As expected, undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. was unimpressed with the offer presented by Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White, who told The Herd (watch it) that $50 million dollar fight purses were on the table for “Money” and UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor to split down the middle, 50/50.

That’s $25 million each, for all you math wizards.

Since Mayweather drives cars that cost more than McGregor makes per fight, it’s understandable if $25 million sounded like chump change. Besides, there are far more important things to do in retirement.

Like this.

The idea of a Mayweather vs. McGregor crossover fight sounds preposterous, probably because it is preposterous, but I guess it’s more realistic than a fight between “Money” and the still-undefeated Ronda Rousey.

Or not.
