Best reaction to Mayweather vs. McGregor EVER…
During a relatively quiet week for MMA, UFC president Dana White dropped a bombshell. During an interview with ‘The Herd,’ White revealed his big money offer to Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor.
Engaging once again in heated verbal attacks, ‘Money’ & ‘The Notorious’ got the rumour mill going. Very few people believed this fight could ever happen, so their social media sparring meant little at first. Until Dana made the offer.
“I’ll tell you what Floyd, here’s a real offer,” White said. “I’m the only guy that can actually make the offer and I’m actually making a real offer: We’ll pay you $25 million, we’ll pay Conor $25 million and then we’ll talk about pay-per-view at a certain number. There’s a real offer.”
That’s what Dana White said, live on air, during his appearance on ‘The Herd.’ Sending the media in to a frenzy, the UFC president’s offer was not well received by Mayweather. Here was the former boxing champion’s comeback:
Not Enough Money
“He’s a f*cking comedian,” Mayweather said about the $25 million offer. “Look at that watch I bought. Do you know how much that costs? Look it up.”
Although this was pretty blunt, it’s far from the best reaction to Dana White’s news. Check out UFC heavyweight Ben Rothwell’s epic troll job aimed at his employers:

After the news that Khabib vs. Ferguson would be for the interim belt at UFC 209, fans are growing weary. The ‘interim belt era’ needs to end, it’s as shallow as pointless. Surely just watching two great fighters tangle is enough?
