Undefeated boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. is still laughing at Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White, who actually thought he could buy “Money” for a paltry $25 million.

Yeah, no.

But that didn’t stop either side from negotiating and eventually both parties came to an agreement, though it should be noted that Conor McGregor was able to land on a dollar amount long before his pugilistic rival.

Their showdown takes place Aug. 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada (details).

Mayweather is no stranger to UFC rivalries, but also has a handful of buddies from the world of mixed martial arts (MMA), including reigning welterweight kingpin Tyron Woodley, who has a “Notorious” history with the trash-talking Irishman.

Watch them party here.

“The Chosen One” asked about the upcoming boxing fight with Mayweather and the UFC lightweight champ and simply told TMZ that McGregor “is gonna be pissed” when he sees the final payouts.

Especially if it looks anything like this.
