Dana White fires back at both Jeff Mayweather and Bob Arum for their previous purse split claims.
The Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor saga gained so much traction nowadays, so much so that boxing personalities have made their respective claims on the supposed purse split between the two fighters.
Top Rank Promotions chief Bob Arum previously mentioned that the UFC wanted 50% of McGregor’s purse from the much-hyped super fight. Floyd’s uncle Jeff, meanwhile, claimed that the company wanted a way bigger cut at 80%.
A visibly frustrated Dana White responded to both men during the UFC 210 post-fight press conference on early Sunday morning.
“What I would like to clarify is all the bulls—t about the 80 f—king 20 split,” White said. “Jeff Mayweather? Come on, Jeff. Me and Jeff go way back. Jeff, are you spokesman now for f—king team Mayweather? And Bob Arum? You piece of s—t? F—k you too.”
“What do they know about this fight? You know what they know about this fight? Nothing.”
White clarified that he is still in good terms with team McGregor as far as talks go, and is looking forward to a sit-down with “The Notorious” about the Mayweather fight sooner than later.
“Believe me, we’ve had preliminary talks with Conor, and I’m in a good place with Conor, and we’re gonna meet in New York when he has his baby.”
